With an everlasting Love...

The Lord is soooooooo soooooooo sooooooo good to me. I am continually amazed and humbled with how much He loves me, despite my inadequacies, my disobedience, my fallen human nature.

I had a rough day on Saturday. Struggling with my flesh and my past... it's been 6 years, but still the enemy knows when I'm weak and brings up things... sometimes I wish I could just kick him!

Anyways... as I was saying, the Lord continues to redeem me and bless me and it blows my mind!

"I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord."

--Psalm 40: 1-3

I've been searching for a 2nd job for a couple months now... and not finding anything... it's been rather frustrating. Also since I went to the Wycliffe conference, I have been wanting to pursue more missions opportunities with them and I sent in a request to talk to someone more about it... and then I never heard from anyone.

This last Friday I finally got a call back from one of the many places I applied at and went in for the first of 2 interviews. I wasn't too sure after the interview if that was a place I wanted to work because it would be physically and emotionally very demanding, but at this point I was willing to take anything.

Then on Saturday night after I had been struggling, and repenting, and all over the place, I was talking to my friend online who's a manager in the coffee/deli area of a Grocery store in Santa Barbara. She was telling me one of her best employees just quit and she didn't know what she was going to do. I told her I was looking for a job and if my schedule worked, I'd be interested in applying there... and to make a long story short, she called her boss right then and as soon as I fill out the paperwork tomorrow, I'm HIRED!

(side note as I'm typing this she just texted me and gave me the perfect schedule that I need, wow...
ok Lord, THANK YOU!)

And to top it all off, I got a call for an interview for one other job yesterday morning-- just as if the Lord was saying: "See, I told you I'd take care of you and now I've given you 3 options".

And then... yes there's more... yesterday afternoon in a random free hour and a half that I usually do not have between babysitting jobs, Wycliffe called me! The women I talked to could not understand how my original contact to them had gotten lost and why I hadn't heard from anybody yet! But I know... it was the Lord's perfect timing and a lesson about me waiting on Him and Him showing me how much he really does love me. And now I'm on track to continue seeking out an opportunity with Wycliffe called: OneStory.

So now I have a second job to help me in paying off my bills so that I can fully pursue missions with Wycliffe...

and the Lord once again is showering me with
His everlasting and overflowing love.

"Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the Lord, or can show forth all His praise?"
-- Psalm 106:1-2
