Just a little tidbit to share from what I read this morning while I was reading James. I was struck with the simplicity of this verse:
"Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praises."
Either way, whether things are going wonderfully or going terribly, the focus should remain the same - on the Lord. The suffering should turn us to God to pray. The happiness should turn us to God to praise Him.
Hoping you have a day today that is focused on the One and Only who truly matters in this life that is merely a vapor. May we find our minds fixed on Jesus today.
