A Week To Forget

In my mind I feel like I want to forget this week. Let’s review the reasons:

  1. Virgina Tech
  2. I have poison something (ivy, oak) on my face, neck, back, legs, and yes areas that my bathing suite covers up.
  3. The poison appears to be infected now
  4. Vomiting
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Headaches
  7. Oozzing junk coming out of the infected poison
  8. Their showing the VT shooters footage of himself (burn the tape)
  9. The dude used Jesus name like he was a believer- thanks, that helps a lot

My first thought is that I can’t wait for next week, maybe it will be better but I have to jump over this first:

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportuniy for great joy.”

Can I be honest with you. I don’t think that I have used the word joy all week and I don’t know that I have felt it.

The verse continues…

“For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”  – James 1:2-4

So my confession to you is that, I was not studied up for my test this week and I failed. The good news is that there is a makeup test today and tomorrow and the next day and I can prepare for all the ones I missed and maybe I will be ready this time.

I don’t want to forget this week, I want to remember that joy is not based on circumstances.

  1. Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Thanks for the transparency of your own slef-examination,but I think you may be too harsh on yourself. I hope you are feeling better soon! We’ve been praying for you.
