It’s hard to be joyful when you’re going through a trial. Sometimes I don’t want to get out of bed when I know I’ll get tight as soon as I get up. But God has shown me over the years that I need to get up because there are some people who can’t get up by themselves. I have a sign in my room that says happiness is a choice. I truly believe that God and His goodness has a perfect plan for each of us.
James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Divers temptations means difficult trials. If you are going throgh one right now God knows and he wants to help you.

I’m so glad that you choose happiness and you share your smile with us at church.
Abbey, It was such a pleasure to meet you today! I’ve really enjoyed looking at your blog and I can’t wait to watch “Only God Could Hear Me”! Thank you for coming to our class,
Abbey, you are such an encouragement to me. I hope you never underestimate the power that God has given you to influence and encourage people! Life can be hard and seem very unfair at times, but as you said, when we go through the hard times, this is when we can truly see the hand of God in our lives. It is through these times we can draw on His strength and truly see the love that He has for us through our family and friends! I will be praying for you Abbey! I love the woman that He has allowed you to become and look forward to whatever else He has planned for you!
