Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
I am so in Love with God right now and I know trials will come but they will not compare with the Glory of God and what He has shown me in my life about who I am.
He has been answering every prayer, desire, and thought in my heart and Heaven’s.
I have received more in my life without a job than I did with one. I need to find a job, don’t get me wrong, I am just saying God has provided more for us than I ever did.
As you know we moved to a house in Round Lake because a couple at the Church I teach at offered it to us utilities only until I can pay rent, which is negotiable.
We have been learning new things about what we are capable of doing and what is in us. I have taken an abandoned home and brought it to life (this doesn’t surprise me), learned how to do yard work (with the teaching of Corey, who God brought into my life) and accomplished it big time.
Today I took on plumbing with God. I needed to change my faucet because of a leak, this might sound easy but trust me it isn’t (: I prayed the whole time, telling God that since He hasn’t provided a husband for me yet I needed Him to show me how to do this. It all just came to me as I searched the pipes and hold backs (like rust) and I kept going. I changed the faucet and would have changed the water valve if I had the right sized wrench.
Heaven started school today, God brought her some friends right away, good kids. One of them came home with her to hang out and ate over.
I made Cornish hens, brown rice, and a nice salad.
I fixed plumbing issues today, cleaned, did laundry, and cooked a beautiful meal while introducing a new child to Jesus with my hospitality and the music in the background (:
How can life get any better? I know with God it will, and I am glad He does it slowly, I don’t know if a huge amount of happiness would freak me out or not.
God has answered so many prayers in such a little amount of time. Things I wanted and tried in my effort to accomplish for 33 years, was accomplished in 2 years. Things I wanted to be capable of doing came into reality due to God showing me who I am and what I can do.
I know He put us in this place to reach other hurting lost people and I can’t wait to take on the challenge. I can’t wait to get my business off the ground with my open house, because of what God has provided. I can’t ever repay God for what He has done, so it’s a great thing that we don’t have to earn our way to Heaven (:
An old friend I haven’t seen in 10 years told me the other day that she saw a light in me that wasn’t there before, she was impressed by it I guess. The glory that is shown in me is God’s Glory being revealed through me. I am doing things I would have never thought I was capable of and doing these things changes how I even come off to people, how I look to people. Finding my identity is changing everything about me.
All I pray for now is that other people hear my story, hear about my walk and try to even comprehend who God is and how much He loves them.
