Don't Say Why Me? Say What For?
-We are to share Christ with all the World. Missions. It is a calling for ALL of us...Not just some..."Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
-Sometimes in life, We are to do something...not for our benefit..but for the benefit of others. When you are IN a situation...All you see is what you are facing. If you step back and try to see the "bigger picture"...There may just be something that you would never see. We HAVE to be about our Father's business....and try to see things through "His Eyes" ;) (Photography Business advertisement there...that was free) Lol....
I could go on and on..but I will wrap this up...I will be honest here...When I was in Haiti, I heard God. I know if you have never been there...It is hard to understand. It wasn't an audible voice. But it was His Voice. I KNOW that I am supposed to be doing this. I know that I am supposed to let go of a profession that I have had doubts about since I started. I know that this is His plan. Is it easy? Ummmm. That's a big no. I cry a lot. I don't want to put stress on my husband or my family financially. And yes, we depend on my paycheck. I have prayed. A lot. Especially lately. I actually had a friend contact me in the past week concerning a job offer...Nothing I had looked for. Nothing I had even heard about before. She came to me. We met and talked. Sounded pretty good. But seriously, HOW many jobs can one person have? LOL....That is the attitude I came home from the meeting with...I know I have been praying, Lord, but another "Nursing" job? Ugh....(Won't explain the details of job here, but it is minimal hours, and not "really nursing work"-I work one day a week at the hospital and it is less hours than that....but a great opportunity to help us financially-and possibly, eventually say farewell to the hospital....Only time will tell ;) But seriously praying about that one too)
Photography is still first in my heart...and my life...I even told the person who contacted me about this job...Photography and God's business will come first....and the answer I got..."No problem...I agree with you" But I decided that there are NO coincidences...God puts people and opportunities in our lives for a reason. I prayed about this for a week. I decided this morning, that I believe this is a God-thing. ;) I love that. So, gonna try it. And see what He has in store...Because I know He's in it...Which makes me smile. Because He loves me that much. He sees a need...and He supplies...Over and Over. <3
