Finding Joy In The Trials

This little girl is getting her heart checked to ensure it’s healthy and doing well since the MIS-C diagnosis. She’s a trooper! She’s happy, confident, joyful, and tough!

Right before having her heart tests, she asked me if she could have some of my coffee. I’m like … “Ummm.. no!” Caffeine before heart tests is not a good mix! Lol! Doc be like “Why is her heart beating so fast???” We sure had a good laugh! Haha! Finding joy in the trials! I sure love this huge smile! She’s come so far since the day in the hospital, 3 weeks ago, when she was lifelined to All Children’s in St. Petersburg, FL! Thankful for God’s provisions!

Friends, if your world looks dark, depressing, painful, and overwhelming today… Borrow my hope for awhile, joy is around the corner! Joy may look different than it was before, but we grow through hardship!

James 1:2-6 “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. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”

Blessings,
