Trials… what a pain, the up side however is that they bring about a perfect work – the work of completing me. God in His great and mighty faithfulness promises never to leave us as we are. He aims to complete us before He returns or calls us home.
Pretty cool to know I’m on a journey toward Him… and how comforting to be assured every incident is helping me toward that goal. Whether monstrous, or mild, each event plays into an equation for perfection.
We struggle on daily with our daughter’s illness. Watching her struggle to be faithful with an impossible detox regiment along with all her physical pains is difficult to watch. Visits to doctors are still on the calendar. She’s pretty tired of giving blood and other body fluids… don’t ask. But for now it’s become the “new normal” as we wait for healing.
“… and let endurance have its perfect work, so that you will be whole and complete lacking nothing.” James 1:2
Endurance hopefully bringing wholeness.
