When trials enter our lives, be encouraged, that these moments are a temporary test. God promises that though we face hard times in this life, His loved ones will receive the crown of life. It is a blessing when God meets us in difficulty, grows our character, and lets us know He is faithful in every situation.
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
~ James 1:12 [NLT]
