Something Different

How many of us feel our life is going just the way we want? I don’t know how many there are but there are times I feel my life is going great even though there are some ups and downs. Life would be boring if it life went smooth all of the time.

Dave had decided he wanted to try something different for awhile. What is it he wanted to try? He wanted to try being a campground host for a month. So, here we are. I am praying it will go better than I have thought.

First of all I am not one to be outgoing, I can talk to someone if they talk to me but otherwise I really get tongue-tied. I can talk really good on the phone but not in person, I can’t see the person I am talking to.

I feel God has been working with me on this but it just doesn’t seem to be going to well on my part. I wonder if it is because I am not putting my all into what God wants me to. I don’t know what it is but I am apprehensive about this campground host thing, not that there is anything wrong with it. I am sure it is because we have never done anything like this before.

I do believe God has allowed this little venture to come to pass for a reason. I have no idea what it is but I do believe there is a reason. Romans 8:28; “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God…” I know this little venture isn’t a tribulation but I am uneasy about it. I don’t know why but God does. I love talking about the Lord so maybe there is someone that needs to know the Lord or has a question about Him that needs to be answered. If this is the case, I am more than willing to be the one to help the person. I guess whatever the reason is I pray that I am able to hear the Lord speaking to me.

I know this doesn’t seem like a big deal to most of you but since I am not a real outgoing person, it is a big deal to me. I know that I am letting something bother me that I should take in stride and know whatever it is God will take care of it for me.

I just need to remain close to the Lord at all times and talk to Him about my apprehension and all will be fine.

Why do I let something bother me that I know the Lord will and is taking care of for me. Is my faith wavering, or is the devil trying to get his foot in the door? I believe the devil is trying to get his foot in to make my faith waver and I am not going to let that happen. This is just a small thing that is going to be an awesome season in my life.

Psalm 69:30; “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving”. I know He will be with me and guide me in whatever He has planned in this venture. I will praise Him and I give Him thanksgiving for what He has for me.

Thank for dropping by. May you always know the love, joy, and peace of the Lord!

I know you are a little unsettled about this campground host thing. I am so sorry. Just be sure to let the enemy know that he will NOT be victorious over any aspect of your life...even if it is something you are not sure about. God is in control and there is a reason that you are there at this time. I will continue to pray that God will reveal Himself to you in a big way. Love you!!!

I may be a little hesitant on the campground thing to, because I am NOT a camper. However, God sometimes interrupts us and brings something into our livs that may even unsettle us a bit. Sometimes things that seem like the biggest inconvenience are the greatest gifts from HIM!

I love this - "Why do I let something bother me that I know the Lord will and is taking care of for me" Why do we let satan get little victories over us? I want to trust that God has a plan for all things in my life.

Why do we worry when we know God is in control? Ooh. That is hard! We know God is there. We must trust in Him always. Great reminder!
