The need for greater faith

From Come Away My Beloved by Frances J. Roberts

"If any of you lacks wisdom,let Him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." James 1:5

My child, do not expect the trials to be lighter than in the past.Why should you think the tests would be less severe? I test to all things, and there are areaso of your life that as yet I have not touched. Do not look for respite. The dats ahead may call for greater endurance and more robust faith than you ever needed before.Welcome this, for you must surely know how precious are the lessons learned through such experiences. Even if you are unable to fully anticipate them with joy, you can certainly gain an appropriate appreciation of them in retrospect. Apply your heart to learn wisdom. This goal transcends every other aim, and any other good that comes out of a pressure period is an added blessing in excess. Seek Me above all else.
