As is my custom, I want to pause and offer words of thanks and praise to the Lord for His faithfulness to me over the course of the past week:
- I received some encouraging feedback about the interview that I had last week. We will see if the Lord chooses to open the door – I am sincerely hoping that He will!
- After sitting with a situation for over a month or so, I prayerfully decided to confront a fear I had been harboring and deal with it straight-on. I’m really glad that I did, as things ended up being completely fine. My taking action wasn’t the hard part; making the decision to take the action was much more challenging, Still, I’m glad I that saw it through in the end!
- The Lord was with me when I persevered through two sessions that I had to teach on Saturday. I really prayed for His favor (as I felt a little wobbly beforehand), and things ended up going quite well! Of course, not everything was perfect, but on the whole, I was pleased.
- I’m very happy that the Great British Baking Show is back on, even though I know that those of us here in the US 🇺🇸 are seeing something entirely different – and older – than our friends in the UK 🇬🇧 (no spoilers, please!). I was at a family member’s house over the weekend, and had the chance to watch the first two episodes. The program features such wholesome entertainment – something that I truly appreciate these days!
And as the classic hymn goes,
… whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say – ‘it is well, it is well with my soul.’
It is well with my soul today, and for this I am truly thankful. Mind you, my circumstances are still not fully resolved, but my soul is steady and at rest – this is a blessing! God is good. ⚓️
