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.

Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.

– Galatians 1:10
