“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds…” – James 1:2
I’m studying Beth Moore right now on the life and book of James. When she said to live your faith as James dictates, I heard it far more powerfully than from anyone else. We can be someone else to other people, but God knows who we are deep inside and whether or not we’re living out our faith. Like this flower in the picture above is alive and full of color compared to the dead around it, so must we be in a life that is hostile to someone culturally opposite. Conviction came with a Texan accent.
