Well, I am getting more and more used to the hours at work and having to get up earlier. Though to be honest, it's still a bit of a struggle. I also want to stay up late, but can't (I'm a night owl and have been one since I was very young). Oh well, at least I can on Fridays!

Last week our hours picked up and for three days we were there until 4:30, which is normal quitting time. Previously, since I started, we had been getting out usually no later than 3:45ish. We had a holiday last Monday (Victoria Day) and there were three or four people out on vacation this week, hence the later hours. As far as I know there aren't any out on vacation so things will probably be back to "normal", however I guess I won't really know until tomorrow.

I still have no idea what my plans for the future holds. I'm trying to let God be in control and listen for what He has to say. It's hard though, especially since I don't trust myself at interpreting what He says. What I mean, is that I feel like I didn't hear Him correctly with regard to teaching and now I can't trust myself to know what He tells me. It's something I'm praying about though.

I've been looking into a few options, but two of them might not be feasible because the hours and money wouldn't be a guaranteed thing, and I need that so that I will be able to make my loan payments. There is another option that I'm going to be praying about, so I would appreciate if you could pray for me about this option as well. I don't want to say what it is just yet, because it's just an idea right now. It would be a big step for me, something that kind of scares me because I've never doing anything like this before.

Anyway, I'm going to head off now. Have a Christ filled day!

Proverbs 3:5-6

Sometimes I don't trust that I've heard Him correctly, too. But His grace is so big, He's still got you covered, one way or another:)

I pray He makes His will for you clear, in His time.

I agree with GeorgianaD! My mom has instilled in me that ALL things work together for good for them that love the Lord! I totally understand what you're going through. It's times like these when I think He teaches us patience and how to wait on Him. One thing I do know is that when you get your answer, you will have peace in your heart.

Shelley- dear friend. Tell someone you trust, who loves the Lord about what you've been hearing from Him. They can only affirm or not affirm what you have been hearing. Anyway, where two or more are gathered, there is love. Pray together, seek out the Lord's will together, and wait on Him together. I cannot do it any other way.


Good luck!

God sorts stuff out in ways that we can't even imagine. This happened to us 12 months ago. If anyone had told me what was in our futures prior to that I just would not have believed them.
Waiting is always such a difficult time, but a learning time too. Hang onto Jesus.
love Susan

I completely understand what you mean about not trusting yourself to interpret what God says. Most of my life I had plenty of people around doing the interpreting for me. It was a great disservice, because now I have hard time of it. Still praying for ya!

Shelley, I just caught up with your blog. I'm sure that the Lord has a wonderful plan for you and He will reveal it when the time is right.

I will be praying for you every day.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Thinking of you tonight and lifting up a prayer for you Shelly. I'm a night owl too, but tonight I've stayed up even over MY limit...oh boy, hope I can sleep in in the morning or I will be dragging. It's so peaceful to stay up late...just really relaxing. No traffic noises outside and all the day's work and worry behind.
