“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors.” James 1:2
See tests and challenges as a gift? We are freezing here, water pipes are breaking, power comes and goes and I am not a camper. A notification just popped up on my phone that said, “Cold pushes Texans to their limits”. And there is the key to open the gift. At the end of ourselves, where faith takes flight or remains demanding our own way, we show our true colors. Will I trust God to be God and provide all we need or choose fear… again? Today, with a cute beanie that has a butterfly embroidered on it, warmly covering my head, I will trust Him. The butterfly reminding me that I am “a new creation”. A new creation that trusts her Heavenly Father. And who knows, we might become a camping family after all.
