Have you ever read this scripture and been a tad bit confused, count it all joy when you fall into various trials?!? Like, I should be happy about the pain I'm experiencing. Well, after days of praying for wisdom, I got this revelation, "if you didn't go through this, you wouldn't be able to be a resource in this area." So, when pulled up the scripture (James 1:2) another translation says, "consider it an opportunity for great joy." We may not be able to see the benefit when we are going through the storm, but when we come out on the other side, as we always do, we can use it as an opportunity for teaching others how to grow through. Remember there is only one you, and no one can copy your experiences!
Count it ALL joy!
