Words of Hope from Tim Tyler

One of the purposes of trials and difficulties is to teach us patience. James 1:2,3 says: “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” It is in these times that our faith grows and our walk with God matures.

No matter what difficulties you may be experiencing, never lose sight of the fact that God is at work in your life. In every problem of life, God’s purposes are greater than our frustrations. His plans are more wonderful than our hopes. His grace is greater than our difficulties. And, His love is sufficient to sustain us in every trial. Trust Him; He will not let you down!
