Pure joy

pure joyIt smacked me across the face. I was bumming because of trials, but the Bible says I should rejoice.

How do your actually feel happiness for trials?


  1. Realize God is using them to bring you much-needed growth.
  2. Realize God is bringing you through them to a blessed end.
  3. Realize God wants you to rejoice in trials.

When you pass the test, you pass the class!

Trials come in all sizes. Generally, beginner Christians get beginner trials. And older Christians are in advanced classes, so to speak. Don’t despair by the size of your trials.

My definition of “pure joy” was something else. Like if Argentina would have won the World Cup. But I have to change my definition of “pure joy.”

    Trials are for our growth. I firmly believed that even I may sometime feel weary from all the trials simultaneously given to me. Yet, I thank God because of those trials, because of those, I am who I am today. 😛

  4. I’ve learned to embrace my trials, with the hope that something grand lies beyond them. It has truly changed my thought process. Its an all is rosy attitude without having to “try”. Thankfully he has been with me every step of the way.
