What a year 2022 has been so far. It can feel discouraging if we look to things through the eyes of the world and seek comfort in the wrong places. However, prayer and God's creation can give us peace when we take time for both. There is beauty in nature every season and in His Word.
John 16:33 NIV
33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
James 1:2-4 NIV 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
