The last few days have been amazing. God's been laboring in me, and right now I am just filled to the brim with energy and joy! Indeed, I want to go out and go forth and do stuff... and I'm instead without means to do so...
Except I have you, oh wonderful blog world! So here I am, just singing out God's praises. Last night was spiritual warfare, and the joy has come in the morning. Today I needed to go to church, so I walked to a local one. It was just what I needed, and my eyes have been open to new paths and relationships. This week, God's plans for me have been furthered and I am just rejoicing!
I did get news I didn't get that job. That was sad, but I had assumed that was the case by now. My need for income remains unchanged, and I would dearly appreciate your prayers as I approach the 18th month of unemployment.
But that's unemployment in the world's eyes: God has given me work to do!
Things are falling into place. Nothing extremely finite, but just connections and joys, relationships and happenings, which are more important than the concrete things that will indeed pass away.
My faith has been bolstered, the battle lines made more clear, and my heart has grown.
I want to share more, but it's not the time. Please pray as I pursue a calling I never thought I'd have, a man for whose fellowship I was created, and for friendships popping up in the most unexplained places. I am so very, very joyous!!!
