Bible Verse(s)James 1:12
It says in James 1, "Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him."
There is day-to-day stress, like we experience from our relationships, school, and thinking about the future. And then there is the stress that comes as we live out the Good News of Jesus in our daily lives. Interestingly, the Bible doesn't promise us a stress-free life. Instead, the more we follow God in all that we do the more tests and trials we're told to expect.
