June Challenge: Joyful in June!

  • Leader
    June 1

    Good morning, all :)! I looked at my calendar today and was shocked, just shocked, that it is already June! I have no idea why, but time sure does fly by more quickly every year! 

    In praying about what to focus on for this month, James 1:2-3 came to mind: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." Dion and I have been going through some challenges this past month, with balancing time, with some unexpected financial drainage (I've attached a pic of the dump truck embedded in our yard last month, which still astounds us ;)), with relationship challenges (involving other people, not with each other ;)), and with technical issues galore...such fun :)! You've probably been through some trials yourself, as we all do! 

    Part of "healthful living" though, is being thankful even when we're in the valley, in finding joy in the the blessings we do have, and dwelling in the honor of being children of the King! So, for this month, I'd like our focus to be on joy! If you are going through challenges, feel free to let us know so we can encourage you and pray for you. If you have overcome, I'd love for you to share, so we can be lifted up by your victory! And as always, posting scriptures, wisdom, and stories of joy are always welcome :)! 

    Please join me finding His joy, even when our eyes tell us there may be none. Love y'all and look forward to hearing from you <3!
