With flying colors!!!

I recently came across this little "sign".....


You know how I love "acrostics"....well, I've decided that I like anything that has to do with words....especially words of "TRUTH"!!!  I have a board on  Pinterest Logo  that is simply titled "Words".  It's a group of little quotes....signs....that speak to my heart!!!  
I recently did a post over at A Year in Pictures of signs at Hobby Lobby!!!

Anyway....back to the little sign above!!!
I commented to a lady that the last year has been one big test....
....and I HOPEd I had passed....but I knew I didn't "pass with flying colors"!!!

But, then that got me to thinking (uh-oh...this could be dangerous!!! ;-)
Isn't our entire life one big test?
Don't you agree that all the things we go thru serve to build our faith and make us stronger?  Often things that have happened to me....even years ago....even as a teenager....come into play when I'm trying to help somebody else with a situation they are in!!!   Those things do help make us stronger....but not in our own abilities....not at all....but making us realize that we are absolutely NOTHING....without HIM!!!

He is AWESOME....even when I'm going thru the tests and trials....my HOPE is still in HIM.  
He knows best....and He is allowing whatever is happening to me....for my benefit....
but ultimately....to bring HIM the glory!!!

If you get a chance....read the entire chapter of James 1.

James 1:2 and 12
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Happy Monday, Sweet Reader

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
