You know how prayer is answered, and you know it's all for the best.....

but you are still gutted!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." Proverbs 3:5,6

Sounds as though Wellington is not going to be a happening thing. I don't think it registered when I first heard... and while it didn't come straight from my boss, I can understand why the company would go the way that they are. (kind of!?) There is still some angst going on inside me at the idea of being down here until May, and being in this job... and still not knowing the answers as to where I'm supposed to be going.

Was just talking about Faith to Ains.... how when we are right with God, and we ask him about an area of our lives, our faith is so little that we'll ask, and he'll reveal the first part of the plan... you know.... "I want you to stay where you are." and we sit back and go... "ok, but then what God? What happens after I stay here, and how long are we talking?" We want to know His full plan before we agree and submit to Him. How crazy is that?!
Why is it that my faith is so little that I can't just go.... "OK... if you say so."

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.
Matthew 6:33

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. The you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:11-13

Feeling rather silly.

So, the adventure really does start here, as I realise I am meant to be exactly where I am until I get the next move from God. hehehe.... must mean that it's going to be Canada - right! ;)

waiting around for things to change is difficult sometimes, I've been getting the same type of answers myself. Ya can only hope somehow disaster was averted or something very much more suited for ya comes along.

CJ That's the hardest thing to live with, is when He says to STAY or SIT STILL!

God bless you for keeping that faith!

Keep on trusting like your doing and cling to those bible versus!! The best feeling in the world is when you pray and pray about something and just can know that wherever God leads is totally His plan and not by accident.

P.S. Thanks for asking about what's been going on with me! Besides "Riverdance", the rest of this week as been quite normal!! I can't wait till the school semester's over and my husband and I can do more cool things!

Snag ~ Totally.... I know that this is the better path, but it sometimes doesn't make it any easier, huh. hehe. I'm just a little too impatient for the answers.

Jay ~ (Or should that be JC :) )
I'm trying to listen and be all obedient - but man, a part of me just so wants to run - and believe that what I want will work out. HA! I know... learning. Thanks for the encouragement though. I appreciate it.

Susanna ~ nice to have you back. Hope you found the totally confusing, and not quite full story about canada.
I'm sure school will go well, and you'll get to have that awesome time with hubby! And yes, His plan is never an accident, and totally better than mine.

UUTW - And my fav:


Luke 12:22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.

23 Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.

24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!

25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? {Or single cubit to his height}

26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

What version is that? And yeah... gorgeous stuff. I was actually thinking about it while I wrote that.

Oh the joys of being human.

It all actually sucks more today than it did yesterday. Shows how slow my brain is I guess.

I like your style.
I feel the same way too.

Welly for me at the moment is a staging point, transitional, im hoping my bids get longer and I can spend 24hrs, but we very rarely leave a jet there. might pick up when you are in full blown summer!

So guess what im going to pray for, lets hope :)
