John 16:33 - "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
James 1:2-3 - Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
Dear God, help me to continue rejoicing in the face of hardship so I can experience Your peace and blessings through and in spite of them. Thank You for the pearl of great value. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
