I believe this post is long overdue. You may not know this, but in the “blog world”, 3 days between posts is seen as too long. I’m afraid to find out what they would say about my 2 1/2 weeks?!? Oh well, this is my spot, so I can do as I please, although I have missed writing.
So, why the long absence? Quite simply, I’ve been writing everywhere else that this place has been put at the bottom of the list! God has yet again been refining me, which takes up quite a bit of my time in my journal and studying His word. I’ve also written, thrown away, and then rewritten a support letter! Who knew telling your own story was so difficult? But I’ve been told time and time again- support raising is not about money, it’s about relationships. I want my supporters to know exactly what I’m doing, how God is moving, how they are such a huge part of what I do- and I guess that’s where writing the letter gets difficult. I’m hoping to get monthly supporters, which isn’t a common idea to most people. If I can get around 20-25 people supporting me about $30 a month, I will have enough to stay and work for my 2 1/2 years. When I break it down like that, it doesn’t sound so intimidating!! God has promised to provide, and also told me that His provision will come in the most random ways, so I’m excited to see how this plays out!! If you would like more information, and to receive a letter, let me know!
I’m walking through 1 John with my Bible study and God is continuing to blow my mind with the depths of His love for us. Some of the book is a struggle to walk through, but I’m loving the way God is growing us together as a group. If you told me last year that a group of my high school friends would gather together every Monday night to seek God out, I would never believe you. I’m so glad this life is as unpredictable as it is.
So as for me personally, I only have 7 weeks of work left at my current job as a nanny. This is both very exciting and very sad as I will miss those kids immensely. I will be gone for the last 2 weeks of August, so from September onwards I need to find another job! If you know of any part time positions opening up, again, let me know! I’m not stressing out, but mum is a bit! 🙂
Here’s to support raising, seeking God’s heart, and learning more about myself then I want to along the way!
With Strength that is not my own, Sam
