Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. If you don’t have all the wisdom needed for this journey, then all you have to do is ask God for it; and God will grant all that you need. He gives lavishly and never scolds you for asking. (James 1:2-4 The Voice)
Ever since Joel was a little boy, I’ve prayed for him to find friends. And God has answered that prayer along the way. But when Joel moved out of our home in 2010, he entered a new friend desert.
“Oh Lord, send my son some friends!!!” became my heart’s cry.
God answered in His timing, as God always does.
God sent us Grace.
