Wisdom.

Constitution Hill ( I visited this yesterday)


Learning.

I love to learn.. even if it's hard and uncomfortable. Education is important

Group after an emotional day at the Museum


"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double minded man, unstable in all his ways" - James 1:5-8

I love James 1:5.... its the last part of this passage that the Lord has been working with me on today. In my prayer time this morning I was asking for wisdom. It is so terrifying being in a new country and experiencing everything "new." It's such a hard but humbling experience. & now after dinner (I'm 6 hours ahead of you!) I've upended my bible to James and just started reading and this last part of these verses has challenged me so much. without doubting? double minded man? unstable in ALL his ways?

really?

this is something I need to work on and I am so thankful that I have the Holy Spirit and God's grace to get me through this. I want wisdom so bad.. and the bible doesn't lie.. so God will give it to me generously, but I need to not doubt that he will.

Personally, I like to control things so it's hard not having a plan B... just incase God doesn't give me wisdom for that day- what a stupid women I am for ever thinking God doesn't take care of his children

Anyways this is just my thoughts of the day- thought I would share with you and also challenge you with that! Do you believe you can receive wisdom from Christ?

I visited the Apartheid museum today and that was really hard... the whole day I've been asking for wisdom about what to with all the information I've seen/heard/read...the thing that stands out to me the most is that the people I will interact with daily experienced this.. experienced the torture and dehumanization.. this isn't history for them.. it has shaped their lives and every day experiences and I so want to be sensitive to that- of course they will judge me because I'm white- its hard not too? So I am on my knees asking God tonight for wisdom on how to deal with this.


Thank you once again for your prayers.
Please know that I pray for you too and thank God for putting such amazing people in my life.
