Do you know the song that goes, “I lean, I lean, I lean, I lean, leanin’ on the Lord’s side”? Or something like…anyhow, that’s me. I’m totally leaning on the Lord because there’s no way I could do this on my own. It’s by His grace, His faithfulness and His provision that I can say that I am at peace. The Lord has been so good to me. While I am completely overwhelmed with all I need to learn and do before summer starts (on Tuesday!), I haven’t been stressed out. Rather, I have a sense of peace and calmness that is so NOT me. Normally in a situation like this, I would be freaking out and probably getting migraines. But instead I feel laid back and ready to take things one step at a time. It’s such a blessing to see how God has been working in me. It’s only through His grace and faithfulness that I am this way.
Psalm 33:4 tells us that “the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.” He is so faithful to us, even when we aren’t faithful to Him. It’s just amazing to witness it in my own life.
I really love it here. The area is just gorgeous, the people are really friendly and my work is fantastic! Last night we had an Open House/Graduation Party for high school kids in the 4.12 program (the leadership training program that I run). It was so fun to meet a bunch of them and have them be excited to meet me. It’s going to be so great to get to know them and interact with them throughout the year.
