Verse of the Day ~ James 1:12

Verse of the Day

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12

Our verse of the day reminds me that I am going to endure trials . . . many trials in fact as part of the tests God has seen me through. But I learned I must keep my eyes on the Lord and stay strong, knowing He will give me the strength to endure.

One day I made a list of my trials and then next to them, I listed how God stepped in and helped me. Wow, did I love seeing all the ways He worked on my behalf. This list is a beautiful reminder when I am going through a tough time, knowing He will continue to make all things work together for our good because we love Him.

This crown I receive will be given to the Lord. I don’t need a thing in the way of accolades; all I need is Him.
