This Sunday Pastor Barry had the whole church all 3,000+ of us sing...
" Yes, Jesus Loves me... Yes Jesus Loves Me... Yes Jesus Loves me.. The Bible tells me so."
It has probably been well over 10 years since I sang that song with Mrs. Carol as I sat on a tarp near the UTA fields... On most Wednesday afternoons for Mission Arlington Bible Studies... I wonder how she is these days.. I have a Thank You note that I must deliver... She has no idea how much she impacted my life as a child. Now looking back a lot of the first verses and Bible activities I ever engaged in we're because of her. May God Bless her this evening and for the rest of the evenings to come! Plant the seeds people!!!
The last two weeks have been so much fun! I can safely say, I love my job. Everyone I have encountered there & the children I've gotten to meet are so lovely. I praise God for leading me where he wanted me to be. The best part of my job is being able to read scripture on the screens in the lobby... praying before meetings begin... and I enjoy when Lt. Jones is there and has scripture ready for all his staff to hear. I waited nearly 7 months for this job. After several no-go interviews... and countless job applications... plus the anxiety of the call backs.. I'm here. Content and continuing to seek God's will for me.
This Thursday I will be leading my very first Women's Bible Study group in my home. I'm so excited and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to fellowship with some lovely young women who are just seeking to love God more and more each day. For he should always be the very first man we ever love, then daddy, then the husband. I know God will be taking over the entire time and I just can't wait!!
I ran a race.. and I can't say which race because it hasn't happened yet and we promised we wouldn't post about it online.. let's just say it was incredibly exhausting. My legs are on fire. I need to work out more. So Sunday, I got myself a pair of yoga pants from Marshall's which we're only like $5! & now all I need is some proper trainers.. because I only have my super cute ( which are now really dirty) floral sneakers from Target ( I LOVE TARGET). I hate sneakers... they make my feet feel claustrophobic.. it sucks! But now... I will have to go get some... I'm skinny yet incredibly out of shape. Best part of this race, (Besides coming home and standing under the A/C) we started the race on the cowboys actual playing field! AWESOME!
& despite all these great things there's always a few that aren't so great... BUT if we stand firm Thanking God for all his goodness that he gives to us, and humbly ask him to strengthen us so we may over come the things that don't come as easily... Life always tends to be amazingly blessed!!
