We all have issues and problems in our lives.  But, does it seem like sometimes things are going soooo good, and boom.....everything goes wrong?  That happens to all of us at times.  What are we supposed to do?  Well, the book of James says that we are to count it all joy!  JOY?!?  I never did like that verse until I finally figured out that the reason we are to count it all joy is that our loving Heavenly Father has the solution for the problem and will give us the blessing of joy.  We receive His help by faith and these verses go on to say that when our faith is tried it causes us to learn patience and patience will work for good in our lives.  Bible patience is like driving down a totally smooth flat road with no bumps or lumps.  When patience works in us, our lives can be like that - no matter the circumstances.
