I'm in a happier place than last week. I had prayed about that post, because I wanted to be authentic about where I was, and where I was was painfully waiting.
I'm still waiting. I never heard from the job I applied for, but I trust in God's provision, no matter how long it takes. It's hard for me not to pay my debts like that, because I feel like that's an extension of God. That is, I don't want a child of God to be known for not paying her debts, you know? But if I can't, I can't, and God knows it. If he's not provided a way to do it, then I will rest in that and be assured He is always good and always faithful.
God's been really sweet to me this week. Yesterday He showed me the parallels between Isaiah 61 and Revelations 19:11-16. It was pretty awesome. I spent some good time with Him, praying and praising.
He's been giving me the discipline to work hard on what He's given me to do this week... but also the weather He's sent has made me very sleepy. So I've been doing it on a crazy schedule mixed with insomnia and sleeping in.
He gave both me and Ryan a renewed appreciation for the power of the Bible. I love the Bible. Thank you, God! Ryan seems very reinvigorated. I am so blessed to have a man seeking after God!
Our Lord's given me visions of possibilities on how to pursue His path for me. Right now I'm praying for help, because I can't do it alone. I don't have the means to do the simplest things right now, which is very humbling. And the truth is I don't want to go it alone. I know I am part of the Body of Christ. Nothing invigorates me more than friendship. I want to go forward, for Him and Him alone.
I'm sorry I've been so vague lately, but sometimes details of our lives
can't be broadcast on our blogs. My dear friends, how I want to shout of God's goodness to the rooftops!But as I can't, I just hope you're blessed with the knowledge God is active and calls each of His children down the paths He's pre-planned for them.
I am relying on the scripture, "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." I am seeking His kingdom first. I may be doing it imperfectly, but God knows I'm doing it to the best of my ability, and I trust the "all these things" is coming.
My life is His.
