Prayer for What's Next
As most of you know, Russ & I are currently pursing our Master of Divinity degrees at Logsdon Seminary in Abilene, TX. Back in March, I had put in my application for a Clinical Pastoral Education residency program in Lubbock, TX. I was scheduled for my admittance interview right after the Spring semester was over. However, because of lack of organization on the part of the program I applied to, my interview has now been rescheduled 5 different times. Russ & I are seriously praying about whether this is God closing the door for me to do my residency at this location. We have begun looking at other locations where I could do my residency because we do believe that God is still calling me to chaplaincy as a ministry and career. No one location is drawing us in right now, so we continue to pray for God's guidance. We would ask that you would pray with us and for us about this situation. Please also pray that I will be able to add another course this fall. I'm already taking a huge load of classes, but because of the entrance requirements of some of the locations we are looking at for my residency, I need to pursue completing my M.Div. before I begin my residency versus utilizing my residency for credit towards completing my degree. It will make for an insane amount of work for me over the next 10 to 11 months, but this is the only solution we see to this matter. Most of yall know how stress affects me with my migraines and Bell's Palsy, so I would ask also for prayer that I will be able to handle this increased workload and still be a good wife and mom as well as a grace-filled woman to all those around me. Thanks in advance for your prayers!
