Where God Leads

Okay, okay…I’ve noticed. You can stop reminding me. I know it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything new. I’ve had a bad combination of an abundance of stress and a lack of creativity, which I suppose often go hand in hand. I’d like to say it’s all behind me and I have something wonderfully witty to share with you. However, that’s not really the case. There’s been a lot going on both physically & mentally for me. My last post was Feb 1st. February 2nd was the 5 year anniversary of the death of my daughter. Try as I might, I could not find the words I searched for to express my feelings this and every February. In my last post, I mentioned a new job opportunity. Tomorrow I will spend the morning finishing up my last day at my old job and the afternoon starting my new one. The decision to change jobs has been an extremely difficult one. I have had nothing but great experiences and making a change was the farthest thing from my mind. But God often leads us down paths we don’t expect. The question I ask myself is, “Do I have the faith to follow Him?” My change in jobs is also accompanied by a physical challenge I’ve been struggling with. I believe it’s been correctly diagnosed as an inner ear problem, but whatever it is, it’s certainly an inconvenience that I don’t have time or energy for right now. As I make these transitions, I can only solicit the prayers of my family and friends, and pray myself to hear that gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit that says, “Follow me.”

Cari, good to "hear" from you again! I so enjoy your postings! Just want to leave a couple of thoughts with you at this time:

“Lord God, if any successes or accomplishments come my way today, remind me that they are from You and for You. As I enjoy the satisfaction that comes from a job well done, may I not forget to give You the glory. Amen.”

Almighty God, fill my heart with the confidence that nothing anyone can send my way today is too big or too difficult for us to handle together. I rejoice in Your greatness and in Your great love. Amen.”

Also, you and your family are in my prayer journal and every Feb 2 I lift you all up before our Heavenly Father for an extra measure of peace and grace on that day. Will now be praying for your physical health!
Blessings PD (Colorado)
