I keep wanting to blog…not finding time to blog…not knowing what to blog about it in the hard-to-find moments.
The job is going very well. I’m learning a lot already and my first major project is very interesting. I’m detemined to do well and to learn as much as I can throughout. So far, so good, I keep saying.
I’m getting back into the “routine” of things – home group, youth group, Bible study, life. I just don’t seem to have it all “down” yet. I always want things to be a certain way, flow a certain way, work out a certain way and God has other plans. What is that saying? Tell God your plans so he can have a good laugh?
On another note, I posted the scripture below on Sunday because a) it was Sunday and b) it really struck me when I came across it in my study. So often I find myself worried about this one or that one and what they are saying or what they will think if I do this or that. Then I realized – if I am working for God, obeying what he wants me to do as far as I can tell it, then that is what matters. It doesn’t matter if someone disagrees or thinks I should do it another way because that’s how THEY would do it. Of course, I should always listen and take such ideas into account – you can always and forever learn from others. But when I feel strongly that I am doing something the right way and for the Lord, then it shouldn’t matter to me if men are pleased. It should only matter that I am pleasing God.

It definitely isn't important if other people approve of you or your message. You aren't doing anyone harm, you're trying to help.
I hear you on the planning thing. Sometimes it seems like we should just stop.
I think that more & more!
