Counting it All Joy is Hard


I am becoming increasingly aware that this road we are traveling is not all about getting Todd gainfully employed. In fact, for me it is more about learning to depend more on God; to know Him better and to love Him more deeply.

When I look back over these months or years, whatever the case may be, I want to see that I kept my focus on my Heavenly Father. That I counted this trial all joy; that I experienced more of His peace. Above all I hope that I will see that I drew increasingly closer to and more dependent on Jesus Christ.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”         James 1:2-4
