It's really amazing how God can change our plans so very quickly. I thought that I had everything planned out, but with just a little touch of His hand, He set all of my well-laid plans to spinning. This last year I just knew that this summer would be spent out on the mission field. I thought that God would be using me to assist in an orphanage in Bolivia or that I would be somewhere else that He sent me. I didn't know exactly what I was going to be doing, but I knew that this summer would be different from last summer. I definitely wouldn't be applying at that little hardware store again! And yet today I will be calling up my old boss, once again requesting a position in the very job that I vowed I would never take again.

I had so many wonderful plans for this summer. Even if I couldn't go overseas, I was certain that I could find a great job at a hospital. But when I did, I the hours were horrible, and I felt God telling me to turn it down. But I feel that although it won't be what I had planned, this summer will be wonderful because I will be following God's plan. I have to come to realize that even if I can't spend my summer ministering overseas, I must still use it for God. There are the street kids who need someone to love them, the Christians that I can encourage at school, and the people I can witness to at work. Wherever I am, my life must be God's. And I will use it, in every moment, to glorify Him.

Busy, Busy, Busy...

I have been so busy with everything right now that I haven’t had any time to post.  I will be officially finished with all of my finals on Thursday afternoon, though, and then I don’t have any more classes until my summer classes start in June.  Yay!  J  I have 4 weddings (plus several showers) to go to between now and then, so that should occupy most of my time.  Next Thursday or Friday, Emily and Carly and I will be driving up for one of our closest friend’s wedding next Saturday.  Carly is a bridesmaid, so we have to be up there early.  I’m looking soo forward to it!!  I’ll probably post some pictures after everything is all over.  Well, I have an A&P final at 8:00 tomorrow morning that I have got to (begin to…) study for….so I guess I really need to get off the computer for now!
