I start the job in Wilmington on Monday. Today I packed what I needed, and then some! I just didn’t know what to bring because I really don’t know when I will get a day or two off to go back to Raleigh yet. After packing, I headed off to WIlmington. It’s a crazy time and I’m trying to just go with this to see what will happen. But it’s not in my nature not to have a definate plan, so I’m “at my wits end” most of the time.
Thank God that my cousin and her husband are allowing me to stay with them until I can figure things out. Who knows how long it will be, but for now I’m giving this whole thing a try. I really don’t have much of a choice in the matter anyway!
So I’m sure I’ll have stories to tell in the future. Hopefully I’ll be able to write on a consistent basis and keep up with the blog.
I already miss my family back in Raleigh, and I’ve only been gone a few hours. But I must trust that God has the plan, and I will find out about it as each day unfolds!
The scripture I’m leaning on at this moment is Proverbs 3:5-6.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.”
The NIV version of that scripture states that “He will make your paths straight.” So even though I’ve been feeling like my path has taken so many turns, and several ups and downs since the beginning of this journey, I am confident that somehow God will straighten the whole situation. I’ll be on the perfect path that He has made for me as long as I continue to listen and pray.
Tomorrow I’ll go to work with the intent to please God in all that I do. Acknowledging Him first in my life puts everything and everyone else in perspective. It’s a new road for me once again. Another opportunity to show God’s love and mercy. With those thoughts at the forefront, I know that all will be okay.
