As I understand It – 1 John 1:7 (NIV)

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

CONSTANT GOD – Count it all Joy, – James 1:2

October 7, 2022

Just as I neared the corner, a shiny red Volvo from a side street squealed to a halt, with its front end protruding past the corner and into the 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 an 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 that temptation, I would have had to pass up a good opportunity to praise God for His protection and my safety.

James 1:2-3 (NIV) 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
