Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials or many kinds.

James 1:2


“Are you going to get a divorce?” I hear my son ask after he just witnessed a growth opportunity (read: argument) between my husband and I. I tell him no and I reassure him that although there might be times that we don’t get along, I will always love Daddy.  Then I go on to tell him that when we go through a hard time, God is teaching us something. It might be how to communicate better or how to show love in a different way. He walks away feeling content and secure. He has found joy in this security.

And I pray that I will always remember that truth as well.  That God wants to refine our marriage so that it is a Holy relationship that will show the love of Jesus here on earth. Each trial will bring us closer to the feet of Jesus and a closer walk with Him. This will bring us our ultimate joy.

Pray that your spouse will remember the eternal reason for trials and that he or she will grow through the hard times. Pray that you might be a source of support and a refreshing draw back to the Word of God where only true joy can come.

Angie has been described as the “fun sister next door.” And like a real sister, she will make you laugh as well as encourage you to drink deeper from the well of God’s grace. She is the author of \”Clutter Free Simplicity\”. Her book, which can be found on Amazon, encourages women to clear the clutter in their hearts and homes by focusing on what is really important – their daily walk with Jesus. Although she loves connecting with women and writing on her blog at Finding Joy In Everyday MOMents, one of Angie’s most important ministries is being a wife to her childhood sweetheart and mama to one princess and three princes. They enjoy family movie nights, long car trips, and acting out the TV show Chopped. Their house may be chaotic at times, but it is full of love. You can connect with Angie on Facebook or Twitter.
