From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

James 1:2-4
It Hurt But It Helped

We all will break down and fall at some point, but we need to stay calm and happy because God is on our side and he will help us with anything we need. We need to control our tone, and if we wait God will bless us.
We need to be able to control our tone. We all have probably broken down, and during that time you could’ve yelled out of anger, sadness, embarrassment, or something else. In a situation like that our words shouldn’t be negative because we need to focus on the positives of the situation. So when you fall if you know God is with you, you don’t have 1 thing to worry about. God puts us under some circumstances for a reason, and it’s not to hurt you, it is to make you stronger. It doesn’t matter who turns against you because God is right by your side, and will stick with you till the very end. Therefore if we are to fall be joyous because that proves your faith in God knowing he well help you.
We need to be patient for God’s blessings. God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us, so we don’t need to worry about breaking down and not being able to be fixed because if we pray God will help you, it just takes time. God has all power, so he knows the time when you need him the most therefore we need to be patient and wait for what he has in store for you. In that time though, keep a smile on your face and be positive because your blessing will be coming soon.
God is soon to bless you so there is no need to worry. We should control our actions and the way we think, and soon blessings are to come.
