In James 1:2 it talks about defiant joy…. It tells you to count it
pure joy when you go through trials. Even when things seem they cant
get any worse, praise God in the midst of all of that. Find Joy in that
and where you find Joy you will find Hope. Joy flows out of Hope, and hope in God’s faith fullness produces Joy. Hope equals confident expectation, not wishing… but knowing.

Hope and Joy comes to us in rest. We can only find true rest in the
hands of God. Accept the fact that there will not always be rest. Things may not
always go the way you want, because it may not be at all what you need. As long as you have Faith, Hope, and Joy, you will have rest in God’s hands knowing that it will be OK. Never let someone else’s actions steal your joy or rest, God has a purpose and plan for your life.

Write down every time something awful happens, every
time you are hopeless, or feel alone. Look back and you will see God
had his hands in everything, every time you needed him he was there. Whatever God
requires he provides. You can do all things through Christ who
strengthens you, whatever God starts he finishes, and whatever God
promises he fulfills. God is unchanged, he is steadfast and mighty.
Write it all down and you will begin to see the way God moves in your
life ….. he loves you so much, and I know he loves me. God chooses us we do not choose him. And his promise to us was made with an ultimate sacrifice.
God said he would deliver us and he would give us
life. He never never promised life would be easy or burden free.

I read this book called “Hinds Feet On High Places” and it talks about
how God delivers a girl named much afraid from the valley of fear. And
through her journey he sends her to desert places and through all these hard
lessons. But when he delivers her to the high places she is equipped
to get there because he gave her the hinds feet she needed to take
that journey.
The biggest lessons in life, the best lessons in life
are through losing and hardships. Through adversity is where we truly learn about ourselves.
We are all just like much afraid…… walking through the desert valleys and
facing fear. Trust in the Lord that he is with you through it all,
In the end we are going to be with the king! It makes it all
worth the journey!
