Blessings

Today is such a blessing. In our morning prayer meeting I could really see our groups of students and missionaries opening up and growing closer. Our prayer requests weren’t shallow, vague, or unspoken. Instead we opened our hearts to each other, and learned we could share our pains. Though the problems were overwhelming, we found strength by bearing each others burdens, and uniting in prayer.

The thought has been impressing heavily upon my mind that we should find joy in our trials. What a great discouragement to the devil it would be if when he tempts and attacks we would rejoice, seeing it as another opportunity to learn patience (James 1.3), having confidence that we will not “be tempted above what we are able” (1 Cor 10.13), and that though we are weak, Christ’s strength is perfected in our weakness (2 Cor 12.9). I want to keep my eyes on Christ in all things.
