Count it All Joy

The name of my blog was inspired by James 1:2-4 that says,

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (ESV)

When I find myself dissatisfied with my circumstances or just life in general I often think on this verse and the truth I can take from it. God calls us to be joyful in all things. The desire of my heart is to be joyful in all circumstances, to “count it all joy.” But all the time my flesh fights this. I want to find something to complain or whine about. Fighting this tendency is something that has been on my heart lately. I want this blog to be a place where I can express joy from day to day; the little blessings in life that God has given to me to remind me of his love and grace. So here it goes, join me on my journey to counting it all joy everyday!
