God is so good!

I have been struggling with homeschooling and being a full time student myself.  Especially since I want to work with special needs kids and my kids do not fall under that category.  So what the heck is God doing? Why is He calling me to do all of this so?  It doesn't make sense.

Then today in our ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship) we talked about Abram and his faith.  We talked about how he was righteous in the sight of the Lord because of his faith.  He was not perfect but he still believed.  There were several questions from others and our fearless leader, Barry, did a great job leading the discussion.  I was even able to share some of what I have been going through over the past several months.  I left class feeling good about the valley that I have been in.  The emotional, physical, financial, uncertain valley.  Only because I was reminded of how good God is.  He truly is! 

Fast forward to picking up my child downstairs....I ran into someone that I have been talking to about a possible job opportunity.  One that would allow me to use my schooling and still homeschool my kids.  One that seems very cool yet it is still so far away (not until May 2012). As she was talking to me she started revealing some very cool stuff.  HUGE plans that she has for me.  Plans that she has prayed and prayed over and the Lord has put me in the forefront of her mind.  Plans that are so cool and so huge that I am SURE they are from the Lord. 

I can't give all details now but what I do know is that my faith is still strong, but it just got a huge boost.  It feels renewed.  As I was making lunch for the kids I said a prayer thanking Him for His goodness and His plan.  I was also mindful that there are other aspects that I don't know yet and that is okay but what I do know is that He is in control and that my friends is so comforting!

We were challenged to memorize some scripture this week and honestly these verses were the first thing to pop in my head as I was praying today.

"Yet, with the respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform." Romans 4:20-21
