Today has felt like a day of walking through new doors. Not just any doors, but doors of destiny. My day started with a meeting. A meeting with a head pastor of a church just a couple of blocks away from our home. I had butterflies floating in my stomach all the way to the church, however as I walked through the doors of the church peace descended on me and I was filled with a confidence that was right from God. It was such an amazing feeling. The meeting was relaxed and I had a great time.
In the evening, my husband and I went to a small group for Newcomers at our church. It was great! I immediately felt at home there and it was great to get to know some of the other new people there too. We found that we were some of the last people to leave just because we were so engaged with other people there.
It is interesting that over the summer there were many times when all I wanted to do was go back to Calgary. Now, I could never imagine going back. We were crossing the bridge over the lake and I felt so at peace, so at home. It is not that I did not feel that way when I first got here, it is just that with how hard things were it just may have been easier to go back. I have known all along that this is where God has called me to be.
Right now, I am just trusting God. He has my future all planned and I am excited! If there is one thing I have learned over the last 15 months is that God's plans for me are perfect.
My Scripture for today is Matthew 9:28 "The blind men came to him; and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord." This made me think really hard about my life. Do I really believe that God can take care of me? My answer after a lot of thought was yes. He promised He would and God always fulfills His promises. I believe He can do anything.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
