This letter is from James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to the “twelve tribes”—Jewish believers scattered abroad. Greetings! Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. (James 1:1-4 NLT)
James had it! This right here is why we can have joy no matter what may happen!!! Thank ya James! Thank You Lord for James!
The whole book of James is my fave book in the Bible. It has such great life applications …LOVE THE BIBLE!
