Change is in the air :)

It's truly magnificent to look back on my past and really see the hands of God at work. He has been slowly molding me into this perfect creation of His.

verb (used with object)
to make the
form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone: to change one's name; to change one's opinion; to change the course of history.

Friday May 13th will be the last day I will ever make a Quiznos sandwich. It's a bitter sweet feeling knowing on May 14th I will no longer have the kind of responsibility I have had for the past 3 years. The next 2 weeks will be followed by a much needed vacation, packing up all my belongings and stuffing them into a storage unit and soaking in the changes in store for myself.

I'm one of those people who has had a certain prayer for quite some time now. It's been one of those prayers that always ended with Go
d telling me "No." I am slowly beginning to see why my prayer always got turned down. It's only because what I wanted for myself, would never compare with what God has in store for me.

God has made me extremely content with what is in store for the future. Maybe because the only thing he knows I have left to do is to completely put all of my trust in Him. And that is exactly what I am doing. :)

I will be moving back to good ol' Hennessey to help on the farm this summer. The past 7 months have been very rocky for my family, so I feel that this is where I need to be for the time being. I already know there will be struggles for the 2 months I will be back home, but in James 1:2-4 tells me to accept these struggles with joy. I will persevere thro
ugh each struggle with a joyful heart.

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
