When God says NO!!

Sometimes God says NO!  I have experienced that here recently.  I had planned to attend online classes this fall and thought everything was in place but one little detail did not follow thru and so I am NOT able to go.  It's disappointing when God blocks your plans.   It makes me wonder "what ARE your plans for me?"  "What DO you want from my life?"  "Where do I GO from here?"  He has not answered those questions yet but I am determined not to lose faith or give up hope.  Maybe this is a teaching moment for me and I am to learn a lesson.   All I do know is that My God is an awesome God and that according to Jeremiah 29:11 He has great plans for me.  I will continue to look forward with a trust in Him.  I cannot lean on my own understanding.  I have learned one thing through out my Christian life.  When I cannot see His hand, I can still trust His heart. 

May God Bless you and keep you!

Your friend in Christ,

A different path.....

I know that I have not been around as much lately.  It seems that God is taking me on a different path.  The blogger bug has seemed to die.  I am not sure what has happened.  I have just lost interest yet I feel like God has given me another interest. In the fall, I am going back to school.  I will be working at earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Pyschology with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. Since most postions I have seen require a Master's Degree, it looks like I may try for that too. If I have calculated everything correctly, it will take me 3 1/2 years to finish both degrees.  I will start as a senior since I have an Associates degree already.  I covet your prayers.  It has been 15 years since I have been to school.  I have been praying.  I want to be in God's will.   I still have concerns about me going back like.....will I be able to maintain good grades? will I be able to find a job that fits me needs( I left my last job b/c of a disability, so will my new employeer accomadate me)? will I make enough to consider it worthwhile( I will have to take on student loans) while not making too much to lose my disability check?   So like I said earlier, I covet your prayers. I will keep in touch.  I will make posts to report on how I am doing.  I want to thank everyone that continues to read and comment on my blog.  You are very special to me.  May God Bless!!!!
