Praising Him

Today I accept a job with the Young Life Southwest Region. A week ago, this position didn't even exist. Five days ago, I didn't even know it existed. Three days ago, I thought I was going to be pursuing my masters come August. And two days ago, God had me at His feet in wonder and awe. For the first time in a year, I feel like my life has direction and I feel freed in that. I have learned so much during this time of waiting. Much of these lessons, I have yet to figure out. My life is about to change and change fast. As I step into this new journey in my life, I am excited to see how God challenges, stretches, and uses me.'s going to be a fun ride!

Today these are things I am praising Him for:
His sovereignty
His provision
His love
His goodness
His guidance
Good friends who love me
Giving hearts
Peace which transcends all understanding
Joy that only comes from Him

What a perfect day to open up my bible to this Psalm:

O God, you are my God, 
earnestly I seek you; 

my soul thirsts for you, 
my body longs for you, 
in a dry and weary land,
where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary 

       and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life, 

my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live, 

       and in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; 

       with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you; 

       I think of you through the watches of the night.
 Because you are my help, 
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
My soul clings to you; 

your right hand upholds me.

They who seek my life will be destroyed; 

       they will go down to the depths of the earth.
They will be given over to the sword 

and become food for jackals.

But the king will rejoice in God; 

       all who swear by God's name will praise him, 
       while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
Psalm 63
