Sunday's message. "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11.
After being disappointed in not being able to get the car I hoped for, and settling for one that I could just pay for outright for my daughters use after the VW Diesel recall buys back my wagon, I knew not to be distressed or bummed. I thought that for everything there is a reason. This was on a Monday. Then Sunday rolls around and I felt the need to go to church. My church takes the weekend just after Christmas off to give the volunteers a break after the rush of Christmas and programs and so fourth, so I went to Harvest. Almost didn't go but we went anyway and Pastor James had a urge to change what he had planned to teach on to the passage above. Interesting as the way he presented it made sense and we always need a reminder of God's goodness and that He really does have a plan for us and if we are sensitive to the pulls of our own spirit , then we do follow the ways set before us. we know that for believers that the Spirit of the Lord bears witness with our spirit and we can follow the nudges to help guide us on our journey. It's now Wednesday and the reason for not taking on another financial burden just became clear as I have been informed that I am being rolled off from the project I have been working on for the past 3+ years. The time has come for all good things to come to an end and I am going to be looking for a new project at the end of the month. Though I don't know when, where or how, I know that God is good and His plan for me and my family is good and right now He is preparing something for me and I hope to know what that is in good time. But in the mean time, I can work at increasing my knowledge of SAP and with the experiences I have had in it over the past seven years will be considered valuable to a new client in the future.
