Wow- time flies by a lot faster when you're older!  I can't believe it has been 2 months since my last post- you have my most sincere apologies.

The past two months have been above normal crazy.  The Lord has been working in a special way in my life and its been a time of ups and downs.  One minute I think I've got this contentment and waiting thing all under control and the next I'm wondering what His will is and when He's going to reveal it!  One second I'm super excited about all He's doing in my life and the next it seems like nothing is going as planned.  I'm learning to expect the unexpected with God.  His thoughts and plans are so above mine and I know they're so much better but sometimes I would like a little heads up ;).  Below is a section of Scripture that has encouraged and strengthened me during the past couple of months.

"I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel;
   my heart also instructs me in the night seasons.
I have set the Lord always before me;
   because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
   my flesh also shall rest in hope.
You will show me the path of life;
   in Your presence is fullness of joy;
at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."

Psalm 16:7-9,11

What a comfort to know that God has my whole life in the palm of His hands and that He is in complete control!  Over the past couple of weeks I've had to learn to continually place all of my ambitions, hopes, and plans in His hands.  I've had to learn to surrender my dreams and desires for His dreams and desires for me.  It has been a learning process but also a process full of joy as I draw closer to my Savior every day!  In Bright Lights last week I taught on contentment without even realizing how much I would need to learn from that lesson :)!  But God has been patient with me and He continues to love and gently guide me along His paths.  What an amazing God I serve!

May the Lord's blessings be with you all this week!
Until next time..... :)
