Rainy days are good days too

March 26, 2009

It’s a rainy Thursday but still a beautiful day both inside and out! Are there challenges facing me today? You bet. Are there obstacles that stand in my way between where I am and where I need to be? Absolutely. So what else is new?

The Apostle Paul told us that we are destined for trials if we desire to live a godly life in Christ. Trials are not to be avoided; they are to be fully embraced. The book of James tells us to “consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds, knowing that the testing of our faith produces perseverance. It goes on to say “perseverance must finish it’s work, so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 

The goal for each of us then as followers of Christ is to be mature and complete, with nothing lacking in our arsenal. If tests and trials are God’s means to develop us and shape our lives –so be it! There’s no one I’d rather be sculpted by than by the Lord himself.
