Life Is A Crazy Whirlwind

Since April, my life has been taking quite a few twists and turns. I feel winds of change blowing me in several directions. I'm just trying to hold on and last through this ride. I thought I was moving home, but then an awesome opportunity has dropped in my lap a little over a week ago. Looks like I'm going to stay in this wonderful city I've called home for the last 3 years. A local church is in need of someone to help build their kids ministry and they have asked me to help. So, I am currently praying over the situation with the pastor, and I am asking you to keep me in your prayers as well.

There are challenges in both going home and staying here in the city to do ministry. I find myself struggling to stay with my decision to stay in the city. It's the choice I want to make and have found peace in, but it also has the most unknowns. I now have no where to live, and still no money. I don't have a job either and I can't start till after my work is done at Cornerstone.

Yet through all these and other unknowns, I feel God's in control of my situation. What a blessing it is to know that I don't have to micromanage everything and make it work--it's in God's hands and He, not me, is in control. I can't begin to express the PEACE I am learning to have through this truth. This experience has pushed me more into the word than I have been in quite a long time. Too long if you ask me. Now it's just a matter of having a constant trust in God that everything will be ok. (easier said than done) Time to keep trucking along into the unknown.

Philippians 4:4-7

I just heard this BEAUTIFUL HYMN the other..I thought it was fitting for everything that's going on.

Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice and let me sing
always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold
not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
every power as You choose.

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for Thee.

Take my will and make it Thine
it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart it is Thine own
it shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord I pour
at Your feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be
ever, only, all for Thee.
Take myself and I will be
ever, only, all for Thee.

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for Thee.

(Take my life, Lord take my life. Take all of me)

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for Thee.
