I've been having a rough go of it lately...feeling lonely and, as my Daddy used to say, "I feel so d*mn unnecessary"...and not having any girl friends to hang out with, chat with and confide in....nowhere to go and nothing to do (ever!)...it's all been getting to me and really bringing me down.
Today I ask God to lead me and guide me....show me what I can do...I immediately got an answer and felt Him telling me to volunteer....
"Huh? Volunteer doing what???"
....again, I felt Him speak to me and tell me to go to the local pregnancy crisis center....
"but what if they don't have a spot for me?"
....then I got this thought that if He wanted me there, then there would be a spot...and if there's not a spot, then He will make one....
"Ok God, I'm steppin' out in faith here. I'm gonna believe that you are fillin' a need and I'm gonna go."
....and the Director of Operations was working the desk, and I told her "I'm here to help. If you need me, I'm offering my time." She was floored. She got the most dumb-founded look on her face and said "really?" She ask what brought me there, and I told her. Come to find out, they had been really praying for help.
So, I filled out the application and met the CEO and she's calling my references tomorrow and I go in Monday at 9am.
There is no feeling like the one you get when you blatantly see God's hand at work and there's no other way to explain it. And, I can't help but feel that God is opening a door that I can't even see yet.
Yep, God is so AWESOME!
He who earnestly seeks after and craves righteousness, mercy, and loving-kindness will find life in addition to righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) and honor.
Proverbs 21:21 (AMP)
