It's really happening

I am actually leaving my job in 11 days.

On Sunday Pastor Gregg preached the most affirming sermon: "Build a What?" Listen to it here.

As we are journeying through the book of Genesis we've come to the story of Noah. So Sunday was all about how God calls us to do unexpected things. It was an affirmation that He knew I'd need as I'm facing lots of goodbyes and wrap ups I don't really want to do... but I do... but I don't.... :) I'm so thrilled knowing that His hand is all over what's to come, but sad to let go of where I've been. I know it's right and time to move on, but this place is home, this is my family and I'm comfortable here.

That's the problem, the Lord never called us to be comfortable and just as I was getting in my groove, He's called me down a new path. One that I NEVER thought that He'd call me to go down. But He has and He ALONE will receive full glory for whatever will come of this total faith step.

This past weekend I was listening to one of my favorite artists, Francesca Battistelli and I came across this song: "Keeping Me Guessing." My heart so connected to the words because Christianity isn't at all boring like I thought it might be 10 years ago when I gave my life to Him, it has been a wild ride and He really does keep me guessing!

If you don't already own it, go to iTunes immediately friends. Here are the lyrics:

Coffee cup waking me up
I gotta board a plane And fly away
sometimes it feels like I’m going at the speed of light
Can’t relax I’m movin to fast
I wanna find the gold But I don’t have a map
I wish that I could know
What you’ve got in store for me
I try and try to read your mind
But I forget that patience is a virtue
Your teachin me to hold on tight
And I don’t know how the story ends
But I'll be alright cause you own it
I don’t know where the highway bends
But I’m doing just fine
Cause your in control
Even when I don’t know Where my life’s gonna go
You’re keeping my guessing

Slow me down, show me around
I wanna see the world that I’ve been without
I am here and now the future is out of my hands
I trust in you and how you move
I won’t forget that patience is a virtue
You’re teaching me to hang on tight
Cause I don’t know how the story ends
But I’ll be alright cause you own it
And I don’t know where the highway bends
But I’m doin just fine Cause your in control
Even when I don’t know Where my life’s gonna go
You’re keeping me guessing

Seasons come and seasons go
But you decide
And I don’t know how the story ends
But ill be alright cause you own it
I don’t know where the highway bends
But I’m doing just fine
You’re in control Even when I don’t know
Where my life’s gonna go
ou’re keeping me guessing
You’re keeping me guessing
