Is this what I deserve?!

Hagar the Horrible
by Chris Browne

James 1:2-4
"Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 
knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 
And let endurance have its perfect result, 
so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

Joni shares in her March 9, 2015, Pearls of Great Price devotional:

"Christians have no reason to be miserable or pessimistic. 
There is no room for gloom and doom when you're a believer. 
If your heart is troubled by pessimism or doubts, 
repeat several times today's verse, especially the part, 
"Consider him who endured... so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." 
This is the secret to finding joy. ConsiderHim.

Lord of Joy, I delight in Your gladness today, 

and I want to honor You by taking up my cross 
and joyfully following You."

Dear ones....in this evil world....do not lose heart....you are not alone.
The Lord God is with you!

Hebrews 12:2-3
"...fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, 
who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, 
and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, 
so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
