#2 in the series "James - Soundness Of Soul"
Trials come. And the first thing we all know about trials - real trials - is the way they make us feel. We immediately become aware of the enormous discrepancy between feeling the pain and frustration of the trial, and the description James gives of being perfect, complete, lacking nothing. We feel like we either have to say God doesn't care and our faith isnt working, or - and this is perhaps even worse - we feel we have to pretend things are better than they are because we want to look like people of faith and spiritual power. And we've almost been taught that people of faith and power don't experience the kind of anxiety and confusion and disappointment we're feeling in our time of trial. To be strong spiritually you don't have to do great things. You have to do ordinary things faithfully - with all your heart. You have to practice living life like that. You can't just pray for it. These little commitments, faithfully kept, have more power over the rest of your life than you realize. They will help keep you in times of trial.
