After a trip to Portland we have a definite "no" on the job we thought was in the bag. The Luis Palau Association has wanted to hire S. and worked hard to find a way to make it work but the timing and money issues are not working out.
With that door shut we are back to square one (or square none as it feels like on this gray, rainy morning). God has been faithful to provide some speaking engagements and other things while we are in this weird space in life. He is creative in his provisions and manages to simultaneously teach us tangibly about things like humility and listening only for the Lord. So since we have everything up in the air; a house for sale, a car for sale, and no job...I will now jump up and down for what we are attaining. Woo-hoo for humility! Three cheers for sore knees as we've spent much time in the kneeling position! Yippee for being obedient today (and praying Jesus comes tomorrow)!
Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I will cry to you,
when my heart is overwhelmed;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been a shelter for me,
a strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of your wings.
For you, O God, have heard my vows;
You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
So I will sing praise to your name forever,
that I may daily perform my vows.
Psalm 61:1-5, 8
Just throwing myself out there a bit...
