His Ways

Psalm 25:12 "What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose."

Our Pastor preached a message a few weeks ago, that really brought some issues to light, that I had not been willing to deal with or act upon. I discussed the situation with Ted that night, and God made it very clear that I need to follow His ways. With much prayer and even fear, I chose to resign my job that I have had for the past few years. God intervened and took control of the whole result! I thank God that He tenderly gives grace to do things that are good for us even when they are hard or fearful. Psalm 25:20-21 "keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee."
Ted and I went to the Greer Baptist Camp-meeting in Greer, SC, last week. What a blessing and help those services were! God made it very clear that I need to keep trusting Him for the ways that He will choose for me. In fact, because I chose to obey and trust Him, He has chosen me for another employment opportunity, and a way to be a blessing to others.
There is a bit of personal trepidation that I will not learn or perform my new job requirements in a satisfactory manner, but I am learning that God will give me what I need each day if I choose to trust and obey Him.
More on my new job at a later date.
The boys will be going to Living Waters Christian Camp the next 2 weeks and they are excited about that!
We are still doing a bit of summer school to finish up what turned out to be a very difficult year for our family in every way imaginable.
Keep us in your prayers, but know that God's grace is more then sufficient, and we are claiming His promises daily!
Until next time,
Rebecca and family
