"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1)
It's that time of year...the great exodus of students out of IV for the summer and the extravaganza of our friend Mitchell collecting furniture and everything else from the streets of IV to bring it back to our house to sell.
June is a crazy month for us, fortunately we love IV, we love Mitchell, and have been given grace to live where we live and do what we do. It's easy in life to waste our trials (ie complain through them, take on a victim mentality, etc), rather then see the sovereignty and goodness of God in allowing them into our lives.
June has traditionally been a month of trials for me, tbd how this month goes...I am stoked for growing older in God and having a greater perspective for life and why curve balls get thrown at you.
And the end of the day the bedrock foundation never changes: God is good, always!
