James 5: 10-11 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.
I came across these verses while reading the other day. Aren’t they so comforting? How wonderful to have a God of compassion and mercy!
