let patience have her perfect work...

James 1

2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire,

wanting nothing.

5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

I need wisdom right now (actually, always... but you now what I mean). I have trouble with discernment and hearing the Lord's voice. Ever been in one of those situations where you feel that the Lord is leading in a certain way? How do you know it is Him leading and not yourself? I'm reminded that I must draw near to Him, so I can hear that still small voice that He often uses.

I read this quote the other day: "Rainbows are made up of sunlight and rain". I want to be grateful for the rain.
