While I am a planner - as in seriously love to have plans, make plans, and be organized in general - the Lord has been showing me that change is never up to me - He makes the plans. Nothing ever changes for the Lord - He was, He is, and He will always be. While this used to scare me I have learned to find peace in this. What a freeing thing to know I'm not in control - couldn't be if I tried my hardest. I've had several opportunites to share lately about everything that's going on in our lives - most people's response is - "wow, so a lot of changes huh?" I just smile because I can't think of a time when I've been SO excited about every single thing that is going on. Most people have lots of questions about all the details of situations and they expect me to have answers because I usually do - it's like in my DNA or something - but as for the next 10 months of my life - I don't have a lot of answers. I know what God has shown us but nothing more, and I'm good with that - it's actually quite refreshing to finally realize a little more that it's not up to me. I don't have to figure out every detail or know every answer. I can just rest in Him and His "all knowingness".
Two changes that are happening right now??
Well...our peanut is growing to the size of a sweet potato - we're 18 weeks this week!
and I've been blessed with a different type of teaching job until December - 3rd-8th grade - Math and English - it's homeschool materials at a nearby church - although I've taught for 3 years - this set up is a big change for me but after today I'm pretty confident I'm going to love it!
Conclusion?? Change doesn't have to be a bad thing - and actually it should never be considered as such for a follower of Christ - we are promised that He will work things for His glory - what more could we ask for??
