what's next?

I don’t think God is done bringing me to the edge, but you know one of the greatest things about God? He brings you whatever you need to get through your “latest edge” He’s bringing you to so that He can work better in us or we can work better for Him.

I had another rough day, I need to just let this stuff go, but at the end of the day, just like yesterday He brought me great things. It’s funny, I made dessert for my friends who needed someone to do something nice for THEM. Jim and Tonya are like the greatest and Dean and Sara are like the super greatest for organizing the whole thing. But as usual, I try to serve, and get served in return. That’s how great God is. When we are entrenched by all that is evil, He picks us up, and brings us to a better place.

There is no doubt in my mind that Sara prayed for me to be there because usually my schedule does not have that much flexibility in it. And it was moved so I could join the Life Group party and bring… cookies – my specialty.

My honest feeling, I have a lot more refining of the silver, and I don’t think God is done working on me, and I am sure that I will be down on my knees, literally and figuratively, before this is all done. But how thankful I am for friends and God.

Psalm 12:6 And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
