The Penguin Suit

The Penguin suit.
Antarctic: Signy Island - Adelie penguins

Not this kind .

The one that the astronauts wear.  I just learned of the name for the clothing that they wear while they are in space.  The suit helps their muscles to have a work out. At zero gravity, the muscles of the body begin to waste away because there is no resistance. To counteract this, the penguin suit was invented.  This workout machne is actually a running suit laced with elastic bands. It resists every move the they make, forcing them to exert their strength.

Many times we can long for an easy life with no trials or testing, but it takes difficult times to strengthen our faith. Going through the daily struggles of the penguin suits saved the astronauts many weeks and months of pain later.

Even so, it is through the trials of life that God perfects us and grows us so we can serve Him better.

When we don't have trials in our lives we can become weak. Trials according to James develop perseverance in us. 

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

If we wish to run the race well spiritually speaking, we need to develop perseverance. Which comes only through a form of spiritual “resistance trainingWe must put on our Penguin suits

Will you put on the Penguin suit and Remain under the trials to develop perseverance? 

Or will you be weak and unable go the long haul?

Decide how you will respond to trials. 

May the suit be with you!

You know that this is so difficult for me. I would rather not have the trials and just be happy. This would not be the best thing for me however. Use the trials to perfect me, making me more and more who you want me to be. Please give me wisdom to remain in the trial until you say that it has finished its work. May I experience the joy of knowing you!
