"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. Then 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 with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13

Trials and Time Limits...

I haven't written in a while.  So many topics have been running through my head, but I haven't had the time to sit and type them out.  God has shown me His power these past few weeks.  I've tried to not stress or worry and God has rewarded that by answering my prayers in His time.  I was reminded during the sermon last night that God doesn't wear a watch.  His time is infinite and we want to put limits on it.   Even though it might not be our time, He always comes through at the right time!

I've been busy trying to keep everything going by myself.  These past few weeks pale in comparison to two years, but we've made it so far.  I've neglected some things, forgot some, too!  I'm learning to forgive myself and allowing myself to be human... I feel like I've let some friends down while others have picked me up. 

At times when I really thought I could go no more or handle one more problem, God has showed His love for me through some wonderful people.    Sometimes, the smallest acts of kindness are HUGE. 

I still have bunches of things going on... and I think Satan is trying to destroy a few or a least testing my faith.  But, I have faith that God will work it all out...

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1:2-4

God waited until the tooth fairy had $2.00 TWICE before both front teeth came out!
