Testing Times

Standard

This is a test. In the event of an emergency, go directly to the kitchen and eat Oreos.

Just kidding.

Is this a test, God? If it is, I don’t want to fail.

Due to a whole lot of STUFF going on, I’m having to take off this Wednesday and next Wednesday from my vlog. Some of the “stuff” is rather challenging, so please keep us in your prayers.

“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. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask.” (Me, God, me! Please, can I have some wisdom?) James 1:2-4

“Anyone who meets a testing challenge head-on and manages to stick it out is mighty fortunate. For such persons loyally in love with God, the reward is life and more life.” James 1:12 (The Message) There’s more than one huge overwhelming “testing challenge”–6 to be exact–to be praying about. I accept your gift of life, God.

Thanks for your prayers. We really are in trying times. I need wisdom to do what God knows is best.

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!
