It scares me to think of diving into old mistakes, (Dark Caves,) and opening old wounds, (Deep Holes.) But as I thought about what I’ve learned, (Hidden Treasure,) I began to see more clearly where my passion lies. What I have is a treasure trove collected from this journey of life, and a heart to encourage others.
The apostle, James, says it this way:
Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. James 1:2-4 The Voice
My message – If we start by turning to the faith we have now, God will give us the faith we will need, and we can find the hidden treasures of joy in those hard places.
