This blog is my response to The Joy Dare by Ann Voskamp, author of the book "One Thousand Gifts". Every day (hopefully) I will be recording three things that bring me joy, three gifts from God, three things that I am grateful for.

May 25, 2012: Thanks in Suffering

3 gifts hard giving thanks for:
  • what our refugee family had to endure in Africa.  The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.  Those who know your name trust in you,for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:9-10
  • change not yet seen.   As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. James 5:11
  • months of physical therapy. Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3
