“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3 (NIV)
The focus of my Holy Yoga class today was to embrace challenges in life as a ‘gift’ that builds us and develops us. When you stretch your muscles and work them hard, they tear. And it hurts both during the stretch and during the recovery. But they rebuild themselves; stronger, ready to carry more weight… This applies to our lives as well. Thank God for this gift and His design.
