Glimpses of JOY

James 1:2-4  "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trails of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

Almighty God,
Thank you for opportunities to grow ~
to grow in faith,
in strength, and steadfastness.

Thank you for always being there with me
through it all ~
leading me,
guiding me,
holding me,
and comforting me.

You make life worth living.
No matter what is happening,
I know you are with me 
helping me through it all ~
the good and the bad.

Thank you for glimpses of Joy in all things.
Joy made complete in and through you.
~~~ Amen.


  1. Thank you for giving us all a glimpse of God's joy today, Sherri! Blessings!

    1. Hi Martha! Thanks for dropping by and for your sweet comment.


  2. Hi Sherri, I'm learning the idea of praising God no matter what. Praise really does change things. It certainly makes other people wonder how we could face certain trials in life and not be a complete mess.


    1. It gives us a whole new perspective! It's not always easy though, is it? I think it's a work in progress for most of us. Thanks for stopping by, Kim!

      Have a beautiful day!
