Josh, a true man of faith

     Oh how I miss Josh and long to be with him in heaven.
A quote from his last blog post:

"To surrender a precious dream is a fearful thing, but to pursue anything but the full measure of God's love is a wasted life." -Joshua S. Eddy
     Wow. If only he he knew those words he wrote would be repeated and remembered and change lives...he would be humbled and thrilled. :') 

     Two things he's said to me in email conversations just a few weeks ago:
"We must learn Endurance (through suffering), Self control, patience, trust, leadership, love, hard work. A man is made to sweat and bleed for those in his care and self sacrifice does not come naturally. And sometimes, divine discipline is the only way we learn the lesson. Most of the time, actually. It's often very hard and painful and we are stubborn creatures by nature. First we fight God, but eventually, He breaks us, and we become dedicated warriors for His army. That's the good side of stubbornness. But it's hard. Really hard. And the farther we go, the more we persist in this goal. The harder it gets; the more our determination is put to the test. Navy SEALs don't finish training overnight, but when they're done, you see a force to be reckoned with. So, wait, sister, wait. Do your part and trust God."

"Always, always, always trust God.  If He’s going to do it, you better be sure He’s going to do it.  Just do everything you can to stay where He wants you.  If you don’t know where to walk, stand still.   Get it?  Got it?  Good."

    You will never be forgotten, Josh. Thank you for your testimony.
