My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and wanting nothing. (James 1:2-4)

It is the first command James gives in his epistle; to understand what he means by it, we must look at the full passage and surrounding verses: “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, or you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

James does not merely say “count it joy,” but he says “count it ALL joy”; that is, we can consider trials and tests as pure, total joy. Too often, we see trials in a negative light or we assume that joy cannot exist in hardship; worse, we consider the hard times as some sort of Karma, or even worse, a sense of the Universe out to get us, rather than what they really are—opportunities to joyfully mature into Expanded Awareness.

James encourages everyone to embrace trials not for what they presently are, but for the outcome Spirit will accomplish through them. James 1:12 promises, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Spirit has promised to those who awaken.”

This Sunday at Unity of Boulder’s 11AM MST Spiritual Experience I will give a powerful Talk on what many call the “Phoenix Rising From The Ashes,” –maturing from trial and error, to embracing and the rising up from all you have become–because you have reached a level of spiritual maturity, a level of consciousness, a level of awareness where you don’t need to create another challenge! It’s time to Count It All Joy!

In Love & Light,
