Today, I realized that I am going to thank you, God, for the things that I do have. Sometimes I believe I dwell on the things that I dont have and I forget to take the time to say "thank you".
I go about my day as if the air that I breath is just "supposed" to b there...thank you
I drive to work carefree, sometimes I even stop to gaze at accidents around me. That couldve been me...thank you
I come home...to a house that has everything that I need in it...thank you, O God!
A warm and loving husband supports me in all that I do and most of all, he has a heart after You...Thank You.
I have a job that many ppl come in and apply for but dont get hired...Thank you.
My friends and family support is just the way that it needs to b right now...Thank. You.
Lord I just wanna thank you in advance for the things that I dont have yet. I want to get in the habit of thanking You daily for what I have, so that when I get blessed with some other things I will know that it is alllllllll on Your behalf and not on my own. Even the little things go unnoticed. So thank You!
I know parents are always saying "Why do you do me like you do" to their children when they are being rude and not being obedient. I know that You look at us like that sometimes and think "Chadae, why do you do me like you do".
I feel embarrassed when my parents ask me this but when I thought of it in light of You...my heart felt like it had a huge weight on it. Thank you for allowing me to realize that it is more to You than what I realize and obeying and loving on You is even more important than doing so for my parents here on Earth.
While I Wait,
Today is onli my 5th (i think) day temping and I have no idea as to what I am doing. I just know that I have a routine that I am supposed to complete, so I do it.
I suppose the ppl that stalk my FF will tell me whats going on when I need to know the exciting stuff. I think I am supposed to b looking for spikes and drops in my temp. I got that so far. But this thing is harder than what I thought it was going to be.
Although, waking up earlier is pretty cool bcause I get to start my day off a lot earlier and I really dont have a choice unless I wanna possibly miss an important temp that day. I actually woke up the other day when I woke up and stuck the therm in my mouth, onli to find out that i was onli taking a nap. lol
Well, from here on out I will try to jot down how I feel during my temping journey. I think it will b pretty kool to look back on when I do get my BFP!
While I Wait,
I have been informed that I was in need of a temp drop b4 I actually get a spike for my O.
And here I thought that having the temp that I got today was an error or something. Even if it is not the actual "gear up, Im Oing" I at least learned a bit of new info from me worrying this AM.
Thanks <+> for all of your help. Please keep stalking me so I know wassup!
This song and story ministers to me in soo soo many ways.
Here is the story of Horatio Spafford.
This hymn was written after two major traumas in Spafford’s life. The first was the great Chicago Fire of October 1871, which ruined him financially (he had been a wealthy business*man). Shortly after, while cross ing the Atlantic, all four of Spafford’s daughters died in a collision with an other ship. Spafford’s wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telgram, “Saved alone.” Sev er al weeks lat er, as Spafford’s own ship passed near the spot where his daughters died, the Holy Spirit inspired these words. They speak to the eternal hope that all believers have, no matter what pain and grief be fall them on earth.
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
But, Lord, ‘tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!
And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.
Hearing this song and reading his story gives me strength to know that all that has happened in my short life so far is ok bc I have placed ALL of my faith in Him.
It IS Well! Even when things stink and I wanna bail out on commitments. Or even on life. When I just wanna give up and throw in the towel, God throws it back. And It IS Well...and if not God will MAKE it Well...and that causes me to sing.
God you are my ALL!
While I Wait (And Know that "It is Well"),
Today was supposed to be a good day. Last night was GREAT! I got a "green light" on FF today. I had a party with my Sunday School girls...and then things slid down like ice cream on a cone in August.
My patience and efforts at serving You, God, is strong but doing so for Your ppl...lets just say that its running really really thin. I am sick of being taken advantage of, especially by ppl who are my family and close friends.
I was made for You and I shall serve You, which I know requires me to serve Your ppl. This. Has. To. Be. A. Test!!!!!! Please dont let me have to live this lifestyle for the rest of my life. You have the power to fix it God
I dont know how much of this pressure I can take. Plz tell me that it is almost over. We are to the point where we wanna move on from our current church and I feel as though You are leading us in that direction as well. Just be blunt and give me a simple "yes" or "no".
While We Wait
Dae' and DH
It seems as though my life really does consist of me waiting on God. I am cool with that though because my trust level that I have with Him has def increased.
In this time I need to trust Him more and its the little things that I have placed my faith in Him for before, that can help me to say that through the circumstances that I am going through right now will b okay. Maybe not ok on everyone else's terms but Ok on God's.
I havent been on my journal for a while because I didnt know how I would feel posting something that is very near to my heart. Not that TTCAL isnt, because it def is, but this is in regards to my family. My Aunt Aileen in paticular.
She has cancer, which I have come to terms with, but she had surgery the other day and the doc said that it looked like things were ok and she would b able to return home soon. Not that he cancer was gone but that her pain would be relieved a lil.
So the day that she got the notice of her being able to possibly leave, she went into a coma. It is breaking my fams hearts because we have never had someone so close to us, so close to death.
Please be praying for her and I know that while I wait on God things are going to b ok.
While I Wait On You
Its official...MY AUNT WOKE UP!!!!!!
Thank You God for your love and faithfulness! I am so excited and astounded by our power that it just throws me back and confirms that everything IS in Your hands.
You r holy God and my family is rejoicing because of the might work that You completed yesterday.
Thank you God for hearing our prayers...While We Waited!
