That

DSCN1016

When you see the biggest waterfall
you’ve ever seen, and its size and noise transports you to somewhere amazing…
That.
When you endure discomfort and put forth more effort than you thought you could,
and finish the race, because you said you would…
That.
When the young lady you respect and love says she loves you too
and wants to spend her life with you…
That.
That’s what it is to ask God to please use your gift to make a real impact for Him
and for Him to make that dream come true. It really is
that.

  1. Judith, thanks for asking. There’s a verse that I think of when I consider my responsibility to study the bible, and share what I learn. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, ” Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” When it says “worker,” I believe it doesn’t only mean pastor or minister. To answer your question more directly, I have no plans at this time to attend seminary. I would, however, consider some sort of distance based program in the future.
