Wisdom

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God,
who gives to all liberally and without reproach,
and it will be given to him."
James 1:5
Right now, we're praying that God would give us wisdom specifically in these few things:
  • Car Situation: Jim went to Perry to test-drive the LeSabre. He said it didn't seem like he should jump on it, but it was a good vehicle that would meet our needs, so we should continue to pray for God's guidance. That same day, we got a call from a pastor friend in Iowa who is selling his car for $150 less then what we would pay for the LeSabre. It's a newer car, 2004 Ford Taurus with 80,000 miles - less than the LeSabre. Pray with us that we would have wisdom...should be take one of these? Should we continue to wait? Our next scheduled meeting is November 29 in Colorado. We will need to have a car by then.
  • Meetings: Jim is scheduling meetings through next year now. Pray for wisdom as we "plan" out our travel schedule...we recognize that we can make plans...but, it's God who carries them out. Pray as Jim makes calls, that we'll be able to fill our calendar up with meetings!
  • House Situation: One thing that ties us down a bit is the house renovation. Jim gets out there a few times a week. Between calling pastors, work and other responsibilities, it's not always easy to spend a lot of time out there. Pray that we will have wisdom about how much work to put into it and that we would manage our time wisely. Pray also that Jim would be able to evaulate the situation and know what we need to do and what is better left undone, for sake of time and desire to be on the road. Continue to pray that God would burden other skilled men to help Jim.

Thank you so much for your prayers and loving support!
