Great Joy

“Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing. “  -James 1:2-4

There is an old song that my PawPaw used to play often, it says, 

“When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be, when we ALL see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout for victory!” 

When I was younger, I loved these words, but yet they always seemed so far away, somewhat foreign even.
