Constant God - Whatever the thought, the deed, the possibility - there is God, always there, knowing our thought and awaiting our request for His insight.

Count it all Joy (James 1:2) - Friday, August 26, 2011

Just as I neared the corner, a shiny red Volvo from a side street squealed to a halt with its front end protruding pass the corner and into street causing me to veer to the left in avoidance. I was fortunate that there were no vehicles in the left lane as I suddenly moved partially into it without the time to look.  And I was tempted to look back at the driver of the Volvo as if I could somehow determine why she had not come to a complete stop prior to entering the cross street causing the threat of accident.  Perhaps she had been on a cell phone, or looking into the mirror to adjust her makeup or comb their hair? Without the ability to determine the cause of her action, I could at least glare at her! But to feed the temptation I would have had to pass up a good opportunity to praise God for His protection and my safety.

James 1:2(NIV)
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
