I also recently realized that I had allowed pride to seep in. When I went job hunting initially, I was quick to make sure everyone knew that I had a Masters degree and that I was not going to settle for just any rue-da-poo job. After all, I AM a child of the King! What I failed to realize is that the same rue-da-poo job might be what God would have me to do. My place of reference - a starting point. Failing to be led by the Spirit of God is a sure fire condition for failure. Once I got quiet - or shall I say quieted myself - I realized that God was indeed calling me to FCC again. Once I accepted that, a peace that passed all understanding overtook me...and joy! I am so excited to get started again! I am not sure of how long I will be doing FCC - I just know for right now, this is where GOD has me at. I choose to rest in today - to focus on today and take it one day at a time!

"When we have a iffy perspective on life, we choose to ride down a road filled with stop signs rather than enjoying our present. You are stopped and can't move forward when 'if only' starts [or ends] our day"
