when trial strikes…

God is waiting to bring you through…

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”‭‭James‬ ‭1:2-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Listening and planning?

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. 

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:20-21‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“”Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.””

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭1:18-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬
