The Book of James begins with powerful instructions that don’t seem to make logical sense to our human minds. In fact learning to have the perspective James talks about is not the norm for most of us.
In this message Pastor Debbie Alsdorf challenges us to look at two verses closely, focusing on the good and on the promise we find in the middle of any personal hardship or pain. Although we think of pain as only bad, in reality pain and hardship have a promise attached to them….the problems in life are working something good in us. Hardship works something in us, and often something out of us, that couldn’t happen any other way.
