EH an FNG.

If you haven’t been on the Q, or you haven’t been on the Q in awhile, GET ON THE Q!


It has been a tough week for YHC.  I won’t go into details, but it seems that everything that could be going wrong, is going wrong.  I am reminded of Romans 5:1-5:

Peace and Hope

1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, wea have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And web boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3Not only so, but wec also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

This hit me pretty hard.  It is only when things “aren’t going my way” that I can truly grow.  Very rarely can I think of a time when I experienced growth during a season when everything was rosy.  Take heart when things seem to be flying out of control – maybe God is trying to grow you.

At least that is what I’m wrestling with right now…

See you all Thursday!
