My friend/work buddy use our lunch hour to walk for at least 20 to 25 minutes. We also talk about our day but the majority of the time we talk about our favorite topic God!
I shared with my friend that I was reading a book (this is my devotional God time book) its called "Failure is Not the End". Don't let the title throw you off. For example I read Day 9 (Book designed to be read once a day for a month) "Why is My Life on Hold?" Boy did I need to read the chapter and learn from the scripture references that are included. I am, Lord Willing, planning to go back to school and get my degree. This means I will need to change jobs with lower pay but still work fulltime and attend school fulltime. Relax I did it before with God's mighty hand kid and I am a single parent, so yes it can be done.
I am motivated and ready to go now but everytime I've tried to move, God has not opened a door. After reading this lastest entry in the "Failure..." I understood why: you have to be ready for what God will bless you with BEFORE you get it. You have to be prepared to trust Him and pray to Him daily. Additionally, there are other parts of my life that need work before I can handle the responsibility of this kind of blessing. Before today, I didn't get that. Now that I do, I can cool my jets and work on what God is showing me needs to change first before He will grant my request.
Its tough waiting but I would rather wait on God and get it right than do it on my own steam and fall flat on my face getting in the way of my own blessing.
Psalm 37:3-4, 7, 23
