Bank is a general term for the land along the edge of a water course; it may also denote a raised portion of the bed of a river, lake, or ocean; as, the Banks of Newfoundland. A beach is a strip or expanse of incoherent wave-worn sand, which is often pebbly or full of boulders; we speak of the beach of a lake or ocean; a beach is sometimes found in the bend of a river. Strand is a more poetic term for a wave-washed shore, especially as a place for landing or embarking; as, the keel grates on the strand.

We do not speak of the coast of a river, nor of the banks of the ocean, tho there may be banks by or under the sea. Edge is the line where land and water meet; as, the water's edge. Brink is the place from which one may fall; as, the river's brink; the brink of a precipice; the brink of ruin.

Consider it pure joy whenever you face trials of any kind. Because you should know that testing of your faith stimulates perseverance in you. So says the scripture James 1:2-3. Now that obviously indicates trials and challenges are bound to come your way for as long as you are alive. But that also signifies, you shouldn't be overwhelmed by them. Because, they are naturally designed to test your faith. Moreover, they are aimed at inculcating the spirit of perseverance into you. Yes of course, that's the core reason for trials and challenges of life. Note: overcoming trials and challenges is nothing else but a sign of Great strength and not at all weakness. Therefore, no matter what is going on in your life presently or whatever might come your way subsequently. Just hold your peace and persevere all through it. For, you shall be glorified and dignified eventually (mark you). -Emeasoba George
