The Face of Trials

A thought from James 1: 2-6 (NIV) Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

So, trials are a sure thing. Perservering through them makes us into more of the person God designed us to be. Yet, some trials will require us to ask God for wisdom in how best to deal with them. And God is waiting for us to ask him. He will give us wisdom "generously without finding fault." Pretty awesome deal. God will give me wisdom for dealing with trouble. Even when I have brought the trouble on myself:"without finding fault."
