But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

I started my math class today and I was super nervous. By the time class was over I knew that God had showed me his favor. I have the most laid back instructor who seems so willing to help and make sure you do well in the class. It was the only available class I could get into and of course God got me in the right one! Praise God!

God is good

The last few months have been extremely difficult. I can't even begin to explain all that's happened. But here I am. This past weekend our church had a womens retreat. I decided last minute to go even though I didn't want to. I had that sweet voice from the Lord saying "just go...I have something for you." of course all i thought about was how I didn't have money to go but I obeyed. What a weekend! I haven't been able to cry for about 3 months and starting Friday morning the tears began to flow. God was already releasing stuff from me before I even left for the retreat. I continued to cry all day and all night. Each woman that came up to me to ask how I was caused the tears to flow more. By the time worship began I couldn't control myself. I was on my face crying out to the Lord to take my pain. I realized that I don't need to say anything to the Lord sometimes. He just knows. He knew I needed a release from all the things I've gone through in the last few months. I just needed to be in his presence and give it up to him. By Saturday I had a smile back on my face and felt totally renewed. Our God is so good! He knows exactly what we need and when we need it. We just have to obey.

Yet another set back

I am so grateful that I am saved. These last few months have been harder than anything I've ever gone through. Only God could sustain me. I couldn't keep going on if it wasn't for His strength and power. I just found out today that I can't get onto my moms insurance until January because of a new law. I'm all signed up and ready to start school in less than two weeks but obviously God has another plan and knows more than I know. I was going to put in my two week notice at work tonight but praise God I haven't done that yet. I will continue to work night shift for 3 more months to keep my insurance(prayer please!)while I take a couple classes. Although I feel tired and defeated I find rest knowing that God knows the plan, even though I do not. He continues to remind me that he will not give me more than I can handle.

School...work...car...wow life!

Wow life has been busy. I have been trying to get into classes for fall term...yes I'm going back to school! And God is sooo good. A week ago they told me I wouldn't get into anything I needed and as of today I have EVERY class I need...God wants me to start school for sure. I'm now waiting for a letter to find out what kind of financial aid I have...until then I'm still going to work my 32 hour night shift at the hospital. So after that all said I need prayer. I will be starting classes full time on Sept 27th while still working 3 to 4 nights a week. I know God is in control and he has a plan. He won't give me anything I cannot handle. So I already praise Him for what he has done and will continue to do!
