What God Brings…

It has been a few days since my last update. I think I should now be able to have more regular updates as I finally have internet access at my place, and my wireless is up and running. It’s not that I couldn’t post from Vanessa’s, that’s where the last one was posted from, I’ve just had a lot of other things to do during the day, and my best posting time is usually at night. If I’m at Vanessa’s in the evening we are usually spending time together, well I guess we’ve been spending just about all our evenings together. We have both talked about trying have more of a routine for the both of us. With the holiday during this week, and me still getting all settled in and not working yet, it’s been out of the norm for the both of us. I don’t think either of us mind all the time we’ve had to spend together, our times in the past were so rare it almost seems unreal to have all this time and flexibility, but we will need to settle into a more regular schedule and we’re definitly going to have to work on how late things get. I need to start taking the lead here I think, I need to be looking out for how much sleep Vanessa needs. I’m so much a night person and she is more of a morning person. I need to look at switching gears a bit and get my sleeping patterns adjusted.

I have to say that this week, or at least since I’ve gotten moved here, has been amazing. I’ve loved to see how God has continued to bring everything into place, and how He has blessed Vanessa and I with the time we’ve had to share together. Tonight was really in a way our first date for a long time. I simply cannot wait to be able to plan more date nights. I had so much fun and excitement planning things for tonight. I can only say that I still feel so amazingly blessed by God for everything He has given me, especially Vanessa. I simply can’t wait for all that know me to have the chance to meet her and get to know her. She has such a huge love and excitement for serving God, I love that about her. I’m sort of bumbed that I won’t be able to go on the Missions trip with her in a couple of weeks. I would have enjoyed so much to be able to serve along side her. I truly hope that God brings other opportunities for us to server together in the future.

So today brought many good things. I finally have hot water, the gas company got things turned on this morning. I can now take a hot shower at my place. I had a couple of cold ones and since I’ve been heading over to Vanessa’s to get a hot shower. I now have internet, yeah! The biggest news for me today is that I finally, and officially, have a job starting on Monday. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I guess there is a part of me that worries that I’m not going to be up to the job. I know that I generally underestimate myself, but I guess I feel it’s better then thinking I can do more than I really can. I think that the other thing that makes me nervous is that I’ll finally be put out in the “real world”, or at least the secular one. I’ll be needing to rely on God more than ever to give me what I need each day to stand strong for Him. I’m not feeling that I’m so easily going to be swept up by the world I work in, my concern is how I will express my faith in my daily work environment.

Well, the hour has ticked away. I need to be getting up early tomorrow as I’m helping Vanessa with a car wash to raise support for her missions trip. This will be my first car wash, wish me luck! 😀 I’ll post more as I get a chance. I also hope to start up my podcast now that I have internet. I want to thank everyone so much for all your prayers and support. God has been so good to me!
