‘Though now, for a little while…’

2 May

The other day I shared the first 11 verses of James because 1) I love those verses and 2) I had them memorized and wanted to test myself to see if I could write them.

Then one of my readers shared with me a verse from 1 Peter that I had heard before, but never read so carefully in my life. The only thought I can verbalize from reading these verses is “AMEN.”

Please take a moment to read and cherish:

 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9

        ALL of them!
        Yes. You. Will.
        And together we say, “Thank You, JESUS.”

        Jennifer you are amazing! I memorized a lot as a girl and now, so many years later, I do always recall the scripture, but not always where it is written. Just like the other night when I was looking for Paul’s example of desiring to do good, but still doing wrong. I thought I knew about where it was and I knew that Paul had written it-God was good, it took me only a few minutes to find. I have also found that when I need a scripture, God will remind me of it. but of course, I have to have read it and put it in my mind to start with!

        I love that! I hope I am able to quote James the rest of my life once I’ve gotten through it! 🙂
