"Oh, that you would bless me
and enlarge my territory!
Let your hand be with me, and keep me from
harm so that I will be free from pain."
And God granted his request."
1 Chronicles 4:10 (NIV)
I'm in the middle of rearranging the contents of my kitchen cupboard in hopes of making it more kid-friendly. (Why didn't I think of that before?!?)
Could it be that I'm nesting in preparation of my new son?!?
While I'm working, I'm listening to a few teaching messages that I downloaded. I just finished listening to one based upon the Prayer of Jabez. The pastor spoke about the challenge of living within God's will.
He asked the following questions:
* Am I living small enough so that I can control what happens?
* Am I living so large that my life is way out of control?
* Am I believing small enough that I miss out on the blessings God has for me?
* Am I believing large enough so that God is able to have His way with me?"
Something to think about, isn't it?
We received word yesterday that the courts in Ethiopia have closed unexpectedly for two weeks. It looks like our official referral won't happen in the near future.
However, I'm choosing to believe God that His will be done, and enjoy the sweet peace that choice brings. God is SO good!!!
And now, my Friend, it's back to my kitchen project. :-)
Choosing to trust God's will in my life and letting Him out of my safe little box, keeps me LIVING A BLESSED LIFE!
With JOY and FAITH,
