Life has its twists and turns

Some are set-backs – others we plod ahead

Simple choices in the daily grind

Life changing events come unexpectedly

Then opportunity knocks.

It comes in the most unexpected packages

At the least anticipated time

It usually is what we have prayed for

It’s there for a moment

Waiting for one to seize or ignore.

We know in our heart what to do

If we wait too long it vanishes.

Opportunity does not always come our way

When it does, it’s our special time,

A gift from God, awaiting for the recipient to open and explore.

There is no time to taste and savor

Only time to take the next step

Then the open door – an opportunity to Praise God and Trust Him

To guide you once more.

- Arthur Farr

​James 1:12

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial,

For once he has been approved, he will receive the Crown of Life

Which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Blessed: Our trials should put our focus on God and His Glory. The process of persevering reveals who we are in Christ; one lacking in nothing.

Approved: God is Faithful to those who love Him [to all but love better alternative]

Our trials point us to Him and His mercy. We are approved by His Grace, through the Blood of the Cross.

Promise: We will receive the Crown of Life. Eternal Life with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. This is the promise for every believer.

Love: We love Him because He first loved us. He laid down His life for us.

An example of God’s Glory. There is no greater joy than to be loved by God and to love Him!
