Some people may state that they “work well under pressure” others would prefer not to have any sort of “pressure” at all, but like change, pressure is the one thing that you will have to deal with. At every turn, we have pressure from our families, friends, our job and even that little voice in our head. So how do you handle pressure?
James 1:2 (MSG)
Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
No piece of coal ever became a diamond without pressure, so the question that you have to ask yourself today is quite simply “Am I happy as a piece of coal or do I want to shine like the beautiful diamond that God has destined me to be?”
I believe that the trials in life do not happen because the “world” is out to “get us,” but because God has a plan for our life and we must go through the fire, not so that we will get burned, so that the impurities can be pressed out. You and I will never never be perfect; just like the diamond those imperfections is what makes use unique, price less treasures to be hold.
Joy to you,
