Count it all joy
I was not and to an extent, still have no idea how to count it all joy. I realize that it is a joy to go to trials and tribulations. All of us go through trials and tribulations. I also realize that trials and tribulations build character and brings us closer to God. I relish being closer to God. Just over 7-8 years ago, I had my first obsessive thought about infidelity. I am still working on those thoughts. I wish that I could overcome these thoughts. However those thoughts I believe have made me more patient than ever. Maybe it is just aging. I have mellowed over the years. With a "failing" body, I have learned that being overwhelmed even can build patience and character. I guess there is a light at the end of the tunnel after all. I guess that is what it means to count it all joy.
