JAMES 1:2-3 (TPT)
My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things.
For i can do everything through Christ, Who gives me strength.
The Lord is my light and my salvation. so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger.
The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, plans to give you a future and a hope.
