Blessings & Prayer

It has been a little while since I've posted, but I haven't forgotten about you! I've had a lot on my mind lately, but it's been difficult for me to make heads and tails out of most of it. So rather than rambling on about nonsense, I opted for the waiting game, trusting that the Lord will work everything out in His time. Not mine. This has been incredibly difficult for me to grasp lately, but the Lord promises that He is faithful, which is something that I take great comfort in when I'm feeling like everything around me is in disarray.

So, for this post, I'd like to mention a few blessings that have been bestowed on to me as well as ask for prayer in a few areas.

  • The Lord has recently answered a huge prayer of mine and blessed me with a WONDERFUL small group of ladies from my church. While I have only known them for a few weeks, I feel so connected and inspired by their evident love for each other and for the Lord. I cannot wait to see how He uses this group in my life as well as how He uses me in this group.
  • Georgetown Hospital contacted me yesterday informing me that my volunteer orientation (I applied to be a peds volunteer a few weeks ago, but never heard anything) is scheduled for THIS WEDNESDAY evening! This particular opportunity is of significance to me because I've recently been feeling a call toward children and I'm trying very hard to discern where the Lord wants me and in what capacity. (Side note: I had plans to check an adult women's choir this Wednesday evening, but I am going to trust that the Lord knows what He is doing here and not stress about having to cancel that, which leads me to...)
  • Our worship leader at church, who has been an incredible support to me over the last few weeks with a few different things, prayed with me and informed me that our church is trying to start back up their choir and that they will be holding auditions very soon! I began to cry immediately.
  • The Lord helped me run TEN MILES this weekend! Woo! (I'm training for my first half marathon in November!)
Prayer Requests:
  • I am requesting prayer for patience and peace during trials. It seems that lately, one of my favorite things to do is to give something over to the Lord, just to turn around and take it right back. And then make an even bigger mess out of it. I would really appreciate any prayers over this.
  • I am also requesting prayers over some foot complications I'm having and the second opinion from an orthopedic surgeon I have scheduled in a few weeks. This whole situation is becoming very stressful and overwhelming and last night I was up much of the night in pain.
That's all I really have time for right now, but have a wonderful day and remember this: "4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:4-6 (NIV)
