It's time to take out a fresh sheet of paper and entitle it: Chapter 22, Years Spent in New England.
I had an interview last week at a small Christian college located in (you got it) New England! This is somewhat broad but if you desire to know where the location is, then ask me and I will tell you specifically. I don't want to be stalked by anyone. But! I have been offered a postion in their Student Development Office and I am VERY thrilled about it (two staff members have already told me that I HAVE to come over for dinner). :) So much so that I was late getting to work at the bookstore because of car troubles and wasn't stressed or worried that I was going to be fired because in the back of my mind I kept saying: I have a job! Thank you JESUS!
I have this saying that all the paths in your life eventually come out to join one main road leading to eternity. So many small things lead to this job, things that the Lord was doing before I even met individuals who were instruments in leading me to it. No one can know the mind of God. He is unsearchable and his ways are past finding out. And I am so thankful that he takes care of me, constantly providing, protecting, and showering me with love.
I ran into two "angels" the other day. I've never seen this couple in my life. But I started chatting with them and before we parted, they shook my hand and put a $100 dollar bill in it. Every time I experience something like this, I ask the Lord to increase my sensativity to his Spirit so that when I come accross someone who needs a helping hand, who needs to be loved, or who may not "need" anything to keep my heart opened and be willing to be used by God, even for a brief moment. "I will bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me bless his holy name."
