Life-ity life.

Sometime life happens.
Do you know what I mean?
Stomach flu.
Morning sickness.
Loss of loved ones.
The car won't start.
The babies won't sleep.
The baby is teething.

You know, nothing huge. Just life.

We have been getting a hefty dose of life around here. There was one night, I'm a bit embarrassed to say.. the babies were both crying and if I got out of bed I would get sick.. again.
My response?
"God hates me."
I'm not kidding.
The scripture I had memorized?
Out the window.
The TRUTH I know?
Hidden in lies.
Then the sun rises and, as tends to happen in daylight, I was able to see things more clearly.

The truth? We have been promised trials, and we are told to consider them pure joy.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
James 1:2-4

May we all be encouraged... and remember what is true... no matter the circumstance.
