Testing Produces Patience...

My brethren, count it all JOY when you fall into various trials, 
 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  
James 1:2-3
Taken in Ireland
Joy! - that word is catching my attention this year.
And according to this verse - there is an up side to trials.  Our dear Savior is able to use the difficult things and persecutions of this life to help bring about a true faith - one that is perfect and complete.  Is that not something to be joyful about?   
The next verse reads:

  But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

 I like the sound of that! What can you trust Jesus with today?
