Just in case you don't know, this is exactly the kind of job that I've been wanting since I moved down here. A small local coffee shop. I didn't really care about distance just as long as it paid enough for me to make a little money. And now after I actually prayed about more than just a little, but actually truly meaning that I really wanted a job I get one. Imagine that. God answers not when we want to ask, but when we actually do ask. Ha. What a concept- actually asking!
Even though this is kinda just preliminary training, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it. God has taught me a lot through this kind of "have to have patience and grow" kind of thing. Its really hard to explain how my attitude about slow points in life has completely changed since I've been here, but it has and God has shown me not only that I need to trust him more, but HOW to trust him more while I'm on my own without anyone there to nudge me in the right direction. I'm still far from the plumb line though, but at least I see how God straightens my wall in ways that I can't.
Sometimes in the process from A to B, you happen upon A.7 to find your really going to B.5. So all I can say is hold your plans loosely. You never know what's coming. I gotta sleep...
13Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that
city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." 14Why, you do not
even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that
appears for a little while and then vanishes.
