Providence Canyon State Park, Lumpkin Georgia - "Never Give Up'"





 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

James 1:2-3 NIV

Chief Joseph Scenic Highway, Wyoming - "Who knows what will happen tomorrow?"


 There is one Lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy.  Who are you to judge another?  

Come now, you who say "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit;'"

Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.  For what is your life?  It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.

Instead you ought to ay, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that."

But now you boat in your arrogance.  All such boasting is evil.

Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to  him it is sin.

James 4:12-17

Arbingdon, Virginia- Patience of a Farmer



 Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming.  See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.  You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.  Don't grumble against each other brothers, or you will be judged.  The Judge is standing at the door!

Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.  As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered.  You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about.  The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

James 5:7-11 NIV

Rocky Mountains - Life is a Mist





 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. 

What is your life?  You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”

James 4:14 NIV

Shifting Shadows

 

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
