So tired....

This is going to be a short post because I'm exhausted and I have TONS to do.

Ugh, I just realized I can't really say why... (sounds cryptic huh...)

Suffice to say, my next few days are going to be insanely busy.

I am dubbing Wednesdays "Wonderful Words of Wisdom Wednesdays"

OK, so that's a mouthful, but the point is that I'll share a word of wisdom each Wednesday. Am I so awesome that I have wonderful words of wisdom, you ask?

Nope. But God is.

I figure Wednesday's are always what we refer to at work as 'hump' days. You are half way done, over the hump, and starting on the final stretch. They can be very trying to get through sometimes, even more so than the evil Mondays!

So, here is the wonderful word of wisdom for today:

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 (NIV)

That is our families verse this week. Does it ever seem like every time you turn around, something is just jabbing you farther into the hole? I feel like that lately. There will be this bright ray of sunshine then WHAM! I'm bombarded from all sides.

Scott says that this means we're doing something right and the devil is having fits with it. I'm choosing to agree with him even though I feel battered in the process.

Regardless, It's just pure joy, right? *grin* Really, I think it does come down to perseverance, we have to have the will, the drive, to finish the race. Can't get that being lazy on our bums.

And I'm having faith that God knows when we need a pit stop!

Pure joy. Troubles being pure joy...that's hard concept to grasp, but utterly true.

I've never grown as a person or a Christian unless I've gone through struggles. It's like a little sand blaster wearing away my desire to do what I want the way I want, etc.

But you're right, He'll never give you more than you can handle.

And I like your mouthful of a title for Wednesdays!!!!!
