Don’t believe everything you read on this blog!

November 15, 2007


Sara and I are in such an interesting place right now. We’re trying very hard to make good decisions based on the little information that we have. Last week I wrote that Sara and I would be leaving the week after Thanksgiving. Well, that may not be completely true. As of today, we’re thinking about just sending Sara and Mr. T to Georgia. In Georgia, there are some things Sara can do to make a little money without having to find special care for Titus. There are a also a few other opportunities for her to work where she can leave Titus with two very willing grandparents.I on the other hand will probably stay behind to work as a substitute teacher for the Keller school district. It is likely that I could sub every day and they pay pretty good. The advantage of subbing is that it is a job that I can easily leave if I need to fly out for an interview at the last minute.So, just because you hear it from me or Sara, or you read it on this blog… don’t make any firm plans based on that information. Not knowing your future is pretty tough. Sara and I prayed this morning before we left the house and I prayed, “Okay God, whatever lesson you’re teaching us… we’ve learned it!” Ha! I don’t know if that prayer is going to work or not. However, as I was waiting for an interview call I was reading from Psalms. Although I don’t have any giants to slay or a mad king hot on my trail, I figured that I could kind of relate to David in a miniscule way. Here’s what I read from Psalm 40:

I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on the rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. Many, O LORD my God are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare.

Thanks David! I’m going to remain patient. My resolve is to be the man who makes the LORD his trust. And I’ll always remember all the things he has planned for me.. they’re more than I can recount!
