count it all joy

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials. ... James 1:2

It is certainly easier said than done. My trials have been self-inflicted I'm afraid. ...I've tried to impose my will on God for nearly two years. I guess I never heard Him laughing at my plans. Sometimes the Lord removes an element out of our lives that serves as a hindrance to our relationship with Him, to include sources of pride, temptation or idolatry. Knowing Christ is knowing that there is a bigger picture. My current season of brokenness has endeared me back to Him as I'm urged to cling to His promises. My prayer is that this trial serves as an opportunity to minister to others with similar struggles. Lord thank you for clearing the fog in my life and for ending my aimless pursuits. =)
