The challenge you are facing is a gift, not a test.
It is an opportunity with a purpose.
The things that challenge you from all sides are the very things that build you and make you strong.
Trials do not create your faith- they hone it, sharpen it and challenge it to grow.
The Sword of the Spirit is dull when the day is fair and fight non existent.
The battle sharpens the blade, the test strengthens your hands.
“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. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” (James 1:2-4 MSG)
The very things you think will break you will make you into a stronger, more confident, faith filled leader.
Don’t focus on frustrations, the inconsistencies, the impossibilities.
See past the present challenges to the vision God has for you.
Get in the Word.
Soak in worship.
Serve in love.
Do your work with integrity and
let God do His.
