The Purpose of Testing

Dear friends, when troubles come - and they will,
let it be an opportunity for joy then.
When your faith is tested -your endurance
has a chance to grow again and again.

When your endurance is fully developed
you will be strong in character.
You will know deep in your heart
that God is there.

Do you need wisdom? If you want to know what
God wants you to do - ask Him!
God will gladly tell you and will not
resent you asking, my friend.

God blesses the people who patiently endure testing
they will be ready for anything then.
Afterward they will receive the crown of life
promised to those who love Him.

Inspired by James 1:1-12
