"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish it's work so that you may be mature & complete, not lacking anything." James 1:2-4 (NIV)
Please know that I think this is a beautiful piece of the world & feel privileged to live here - even during the hottest summer days (thankfully we have air conditioning!). Ever since I was a girl I remember dreaming about living in the country & the fact that God fulfilled this dream is still amazing to me - so I get so disappointed with myself when I give into times of depression - especially about such a blessing.
Let me encourage you today - I have no idea what you are going through & it may be something tiny like being a wee bit homesick or it may be a major trial - that God is there waiting to share the load with you.
"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him" James 1:12 (NIV)
As Grannysaurus pointed out (thank you so much for your wise words)- trials on earth help us to look towards heaven - the ultimate home where we will truly belong!
