Increase of Wisdom

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. -James 1:5

My life has changed a great deal in the past couple of months. Actually, the process began past October when my boss died from cancer. Prior to his death, he was doing his best to hang on and I had to take on more and ore responsibilities as he became weaker and less coherent. Sadly, one day he was through fighting and that was the end of it. I am hopeful that he met the end of his life with the comfort of the risen Lord.

I have accepted the position he held as department Director. This has been an interesting transition into a field I have been in for the past 17+ years, but not to the degree I currently am. It has certainly been a life-altering event! While I am grateful to God for the opportunity (and also for having a decent job at a great place in uncertain times), it does bring along many fearful moments. Thankfully, I have a relationship with a God that is incomparable to anything I have known before. I often find myself remembering the love of God and the knowledge that He will never give me more than I can handle. I also find myself asking for wisdom a lot lately, which I seem to always get when I need it. Yet, I often find myself lately dealing with feelings of rage and [at the very least] impatience. I ask for your prayers with these challenges I face within myself these days.

I also ask you to pray for my late friend's wife Terri and young son, Ethan. I sure don't envy the time they are going through as they adjust to life without husband and father.
