James 5:11

Today's Inspiring Thought: Blessed Perseverance
"When I cannot enjoy the faith of assurance, I live by the faith of adherence." --Matthew Henry
Doubt.
We all struggle with it now and then. Job certainly did when everything he held dear was taken way. But Job persevered in the faith. As Matthew Henry wisely points out, adherence, or perseverance, is the key to getting through times of doubt.
