Blessings in Adversity
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials; knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing” James 1:2-4.
This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins share how truly the trials of life can be the sweetest moments of blessings. Sharon talks about her recent battle with cancer and the lessons God taught her through some of the most difficult days of her life. She shares how God gently changed her perspective on her personal life and molded her heart with tender mercies. James 1:2-4 is the most quoted scripture when a person is going through trials, and we tend to hate to hear it when it is spoken to us during those trials. But, the beauty of those verses gives us encouragement to seek God through every moment even though we can’t see clearly the purpose for them.
