Stay Cool! God Bless

{February 24, 2009}   Good News!!! Glory to God, Praising Him!!

I have been given a job.  Whoo hoo!!! Pending the outcome of a back ground check, drug test, and supervisor approval.  The back ground check, I do not fear this due to nothing in my back ground that would hinder me.  I also do not fear the drug test, for I do not do drugs.  The reason for supervisor approval, the interviewer is recommending me for a higher position then the position applied for at a better pay rate.  THIS is GOD’s Favor in my life and the result of God’s hands in all this.  I should be starting on March 16th.  I will be hearing from them by Friday to confirm the start dateI am so blessed and thankful to finally share how God has answered all our prayers.   This position has so many benefits, more then the typical benefits I had hoped for given through the State and Federal branches of government.  The position I had hoped for via the State branch is still open, but the agency has yet to pull the list.  Many of us were praying for a permanent position that would be challenging to me and help me to grow and succeed, also to have benefits.  Well, this one is going to be a competitive one on a daily basis, and with Christ in me and His help I will succeed.  I couldn’t believe I read this as one of the benefits, get ready you will laugh, "Insurance for my pets."  I do not have any pets, but hey that is good for one who does.

The house has had a verbal offer, but had to turn it down due to being too low.  I sent a counter offer and hope to hear whether the buyer will accept it or not.  I trust God to place the right number on one of the viewer’s heart placing a written offer to purchase or this buyer who had a verbal offer to accept the counter offer.

I have found a place in OKC and will be moving Saturday.   I am excited!!!

God has even worked out child care.  The day care and a nanny are very close to where I will be living.  Turns out I will be living like 7 to 10 minutes from work.  WOW!!! With traffic I am predicting 15 to 20 minutes.

Just thought I would share something.  Christ is the bride, we are the lovers… Songs of Solomon 2:1 where the bride is compared to the Lily of the valley.  I am also His lily in the valley.  A valley is shadowed in darkness due to light not being allowed down into the valley due to the slopes blocking it.  A lily blooms in the dark, and when put in the sun, the lily will dry up and shiver away.  Well, I do not plan to dry up or shiver a way, but I too have bloomed while in the valley.  Through these past struggles, I feel as though a part of me that was dead or not born has been restored or brought to life.  I feel as though HE that is in me is blooming and shinning through.  …..  I just feel so thankful to have this assurance of HIS love for me and this relationship with God.  

This will be another exciting week, as I finish packing and waiting to hear about my start date, the offer on this house, etc.
