The Stranges and the She Yearns ministry are relocating to Houston, Texas. This may explain a drop in blogs on On Beyond Ordinary, the drag in reading plan publications, and the combined April-May newsletter. What can I say? I cannot do a thousand things to the glory of God--namely, run my household alone for a year, graduate my oldest, re-do all our floors to get the house to sell, and pack the family to move-- all the whiile maintaining ministry responsibilities. But we are within reach of the goal-and God has been at work! We have seen God move to confirm everything we thought we discerned and now look forward toward what He has in store for this next step in our life and this ministry - for His Glory.

How to Grow in Wisdom
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.  James 1:5

The fifth verse in James does not happen in isolation. It follows the first four verses where we meet James addressing an audience in the muck and mire of life. We can know from the language these people were likely facing trials, trouble, persecutions and difficulties of all kinds. They were those who could find themselves in situations in which they didn’t know what to do. That’s where verse five draws us in.

This text should be able to wrap itself around anyone reading it today as if it were tailor made for you as it speaks directly to a need. For you and I most likely lack wisdom, at least to some degree.

If I had more time, I could personally outline the top ten uncertainties and unknowns currently front and center in my life today. Big decisions. Life changes--impacting myself as well as other people. Career moves. Financial jugglings. And, of course, teenager woes. I most assuredly--need more wisdom than I humanly possess!

Why does James feel the need to spell out the obvious?  Of course, if you or I need wisdom, we should ask God!! Why the directive here? What is his purpose in calling us to go before God and reminding us of His good character and nature?

James must believe that we might not. And if he is on to something, we might need to be aware of what would keep us from doing what is so elementary, so accessible and so undeniably beneficial.
