How to Use Trials to Your Advantage Podcast Episode 028

One of the most misunderstood scriptures is found in James where believers are told to count it all joy when you go through trials. But we all know trials are anything but joyous, so what does it mean? And how does a better understanding help us?

In this episode, Daphne and Angie talk about:

  • Staying connected to the Vine
  • How refining fire produces something (you decide)
  • Gaining wisdom on the other side of your trial
  • How trials can be opportunities to future victories

One phrase you’ll want to remember is: “It didn’t have to take that long, and it didn’t have to be that hard.”

    I absolutely love your podcasts. You, Daphne, and Angie really complement each other. I am always deified and this one was extremely thought provoking. At one point I was thinking, I’m not learning from this one particular trial that seems to come up every day and I don’t feel refined by it and then I realised that I was being much too hard on myself which is one of my challenges, because people near me tell me I’m not the same person they knew a few years ago.

    • Most of us are too hard on ourselves! It’s human nature. But I’m happy to hear these podcast discussions are helping you recognize that and feed your faith! Thanks so much for sharing. It encourages us to keep on!
