And Now...

...back to your regular scheduled programming.

As promised, I am back. I have got to find my blogging groove, but tax season is over and I survived. All in all, it wasn't too bad. I worked a lot of hours, but was blessed not to have to work EVERY Saturday. I managed to make it through without killing anyone, or even biting off any heads. It was touch and go a few times but no one was seriously injured. We had some good part-time help this year and it made all the difference in the world.

I have had my patience tried on several occasions, and even now God is showing me that sometimes I have to wait for His timing. I know He has a plan all worked out, but as usual I want it now. And while I don't even know the detail of His plan, His word tells me in Jeremiah 29:11 -
"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."
So it's got to be all good, right? He was even speaking to me through the Sunday School lesson I taught just last Sunday. Even when David knew he would be king, he had to wait for God's timing. On more than one occasion, he could have killed King Saul, but God had to prepare David first. David was patient and his patience was rewarded when God's plan was played out in His time. So for now I am trying to be patient and wait for God's plan to be played out before me, because He is God and He doesn't need my help...
