IT HAPPENED   1 comment

After a lllllllooooooonnnnnnnggggggg time waiting, lots of false starts/hopes and disappointments…… I got a new job.

A better job.  A job that pays more.  I’ll have my own office (for the very first time in my life).  I will be working with tech geeks and nerds again.


I pray that I can glorify God in this new position and that He will use me as He wills.  Thank you, God, for your many blessings.  I don’t deserve it.

Waiting   Leave a comment

I am waiting.

Waiting to hear, waiting to know, waiting to decide.  Waiting on God.

Have you ever heard that saying that God always answers prayers?  He only ever has three answers:  Yes.  No.  Wait.

I am waiting on God’s will and God’s timing for several things in my life.  I don’t like waiting.  Does anyone?  I want what I want when I want it and not later.  I am not a fan of delayed satisfaction.  Despite this, I have the discipline to wait.  I am not happy while doing it, granted, but I can do it.  Have done it.  AM doing it.  I can’t say that I am patient, but I do know how to wait.

I can do it because I can trust God’s timing.  He has never, ever failed me.  Not even once.  Not even a little.  His timing has always been right.  God is never in a hurry — but He is always on time.

So I wait.  And pray, and continue to ask God to be a conduit of His love and grace, and to help me to stay on His path for me.

What have you waited for that God has answered?

You Can’t Hurry Love   3 comments

On September 30, 2010 I posted an entry about song tracks.  You know, those songs that pop into your head, as a sort of sound track to your life.  Anyway, one of the ways God works in me is sometimes I wake up with a song.  And that song will be the answer to a prayer, or the theme for the day.  I don’t know how else to explain it.  As soon as I am awake the song starts, and it is clear and loud in my head.  I did not wake up to the radio this morning so I know it was not something I listened to while I was still asleep.

My song this morning was “You can’t hurry love” – remember Diana Ross singing that?

“You can’t hurry love
no, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
no matter how long it takes”

I hate waiting.  Have I said that before?  This, combined with the dream I had the other day, tells me that God is telling me it will happen, but I have to wait.  “It” being marriage.  I hate waiting.  Good golly — I’ve been waiting over 20 years to be married again.  And that last line?  “no matter how long it takes”?  UG!!!  Picture me, standing with fists clenched, head back, screaming up into the sky, “NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!”

Yeah, that’s how I feel about that.  But still…… I trust God.  I know from many past experiences that He has my best interests in mind and that His way truly is best.  I’ve gone this long.  I guess I can wait a bit more.
