I wrote this saturday morning and I thought I would share with you.
" While I am here, sitting outside in my in law's house, under the sun of a beautiful saturday, seeing my girls playing while I read my Bible, I am reminded once again of God's blessings.
I have so much to be thankful for; but it is so easy to gorget when things are not going the way you would like them to.
Sure, we are still waiting on God's direction for us and waiting for a job for Matthew, but God is taking care of us.
Sure, things have been crazy the last few months with the move and all the changes, but I see my girls happy, healthy, sweet as always, well behaved and soft to spiritual things.
God tells us that if we follow Him, He will never leave us, not forsake us. Sometimes God's will is not clear to us, especially if we are in that "waiting" time; but His promises to us are still true. He doesn't leave us, not forsake us, no matter the way it looks.
Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content"
Now, if I can only remember this lesson learned every day! ;)
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jer 29:12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart
I can't wait to come back to blogging and be able to tell you all it has been and is going on, but right now I wouldn't even know where to start.
We are just waiting for God to open doors and lead. There is nothing harder than wait patiently in the Lord when you can't see what is coming ahead, but at the end it sure is worth the pain.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend.
