Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #97 Test…

What happened this morning was a series of medical tests that I went to take and had no time to write. After that my day was filled with a number of Spiritual Coaching appointments. It was a full day. My tests didn’t really show anything irregular or unhealthy but working with others today I was reminded that there are many kinds of tests people face. James 1:12 says, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

Some of the tests we undergo are not because we are being punished or because they are just random accidents of  a chaotic universe. They come to test and refine our character and personality and ultimately make us better people. We would do well to consider what we can learn from the tests we encounter – think it through – find the theology of the experience. I love what Carl Sandburg once wrote, “Valor is a gift. Those having it never know for sure whether they have it till the test comes. And those having it in one test never know for sure if they will have it when the next test comes.” We don’t really know how we will act or react to a given situation but we hope that deep from within we have what it takes to be the kind of man or woman who has that quality to face the tests of life. Our creator wants to help us to face them. We are never alone.

Be Well…
