If it’s Wednesday, I’m in the air headed for Thailand. A friend offered me the opportunity to attend a conference with her there, and given the “flexibility” of my schedule at present, it seemed like a great option. (And thanks to the guys who are house-sitting, and my awesome neighbors who are on “neighborhood watch” whether anyone’s home or not.)
Back in June, I heard a speaker talk from 1 Peter 1:69. That passage has stuck with me, and I felt like it was directed to me for the current life/job/faith journey I’m on:
“In this [new birth into a living hope] you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation (healing) of your souls.”
So… a little adventure, some fun, some travel, and maybe even a little soul healing. I’ll continue posting here if you’re interested in following along.
