Hooray!! THANK YOU, Lord for the awesome encouragement of getting my FIRST products posted for sale on my new ONE site! And although I still have some work to do in tweaking the layout and such, I am very pleased with how much better it looks and functions, compared to the old sites. AND I even have the next 30-or-so Spanish products just ready and waiting for me to update and post for sale and for Lifetime Member access — WOOT! Lord, I thank you for helping me through all the discouragements and distractions. Please help me to be faithful to you and work in your timing and according to your will — NOT just blindly doing what I think needs to be done. Help me to look to your faithful Spirit to guide me, and help me to take breaks and work on other things that need to be done on the site, as well as things that need to be done offline. I trust you completely. Lead on! 😀

 
James 1:4-17 ERV

If you let that patience work in you, the end result will be good. You will be mature and complete. You will be all that God wants you to be. 
Do any of you need wisdom? Ask God for it. He is generous and enjoys giving to everyone. So he will give you wisdom. 
But when you ask God, you must believe. Don’t doubt him. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is blown up and down by the wind. 
People like that are thinking two different things at the same time. They can never decide what to do. So they should not think they will receive anything from the Lord. 
Believers who are poor should be glad that God considers them so important. 
Believers who are rich should be glad when bad things happen that humble them. Their riches won’t keep them from disappearing as quickly as wildflowers. 
As the sun rises and gets hotter, its heat dries up the plants, and the flowers fall off. The flowers that were so beautiful are now dead. That’s how it is with the rich. While they are still making plans for their business, they will die. 
Great blessings belong to those who are tempted and remain faithful! After they have proved their faith, God will give them the reward of eternal life. God promised this to all people who love him. 
Whenever you feel tempted to do something bad, you should not say, “God is tempting me.” Evil cannot tempt God, and God himself does not tempt anyone. 
You are tempted by the evil things you want. Your own desire leads you away and traps you. 
Your desire grows inside you until it results in sin. Then the sin grows bigger and bigger and finally ends in death. 
My dear brothers and sisters, don’t be fooled about this. 
Everything good comes from God. Every perfect gift is from him. These good gifts come down from the Father who made all the lights in the sky. But God never changes like the shadows from those lights. He is always the same.
