Purpose in the Trials

The purpose of our trials is not only to test our worthiness but also to increase it, just as the mighty oak is tested by the storms as well as strengthened by them. ~Streams in the Desert

This scene beckons me.

I don’t want to lack anything. I don’t like the storms, but I don’t want to miss what God has for me, and I don’t want you to miss what He has for you.

What’s your story? If you are on the other side of a storm, blue skies and green grass, oak tree strong after the trial, will you share it to encourage others? If you would like to share your story of being strengthened in the storm, leave a comment or e-mail me at www.wordsbyandylee.com.

Much grace,

Consider it pure joy my brothers, 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 not lacking anything (James 1:2).
