Today I woke up not feeling so well. Not sure if its because I am coming down with a little cold or if its because of my allergies. Which ever it may be I was just feeling like I am missing out. Should I have moved so far away from my family and friends. Am I really where I need to be where I want to be. Do you see the repetitive "I". There is a reason for that. It is not about me. It's about what God wants from me. Anyways I awoke from my nap very upset. And I prayed Lord I just want you to talk to me.
So I looked at my bible and said hmm.. Lets just go ahead and open it. Well I like to just skim through the pages and then just pick a page. This time I closed my eyes and just opened. And to my surprise I read Ezra 3: 1-6. However in my bible the New King James version was a page that talks about Zerubbabel. This is what I read:
"Sometimes God's ownership of a project is only recognized after our best efforts have failed. It is dangerous to think of God as responsible for the insignificant details while we take charge of the larger aspects of a project. Instead it is God who is in control and we only play a part in his overall plan. When God gives us important jobs to do, it isn't because he needs our help. Zerubbabel learned this lesson."
It goes on to talk about Zerubbabel's story. This is what just really made me just start to cry because I know God was totally talking to me:
"We do not know what Zerubbabel did during this time. His discouragement, following those first months of excitement and accomplishment, must have been deep. Those feelings eventually hardened into hopelessness. So God sent the prophets Haggai and Zechariah to be Zerubbabel's encouraging companions. They confronted the people's reluctance and comforted their fears. The work began once again with renewed energy and was completed in four years.
Zerubbabel, like many of us, knew how to start well but found it hard to keep going. His success depended on the quality of encouragement he received. Zerubbabel let discouragement get the better of him. But when he let God take control, the work was finished. God is always in control. We must not let circumstances of lack of encouragement slow us from doing the tasks God has given us."
I can't even begin to tell you how completely humbled I felt. I know what I need to do and not let my discouragement that I have placed upon myself get the better of me. God is in control and I know He will get me through this journey.

So I just got back from taking a little drive. And my heart is just filled with love and appreciation for God and all that he does. He is truly working in my life and I feel so blessed and humbled. He is so amazing, all you have to do is trust him. Once you do this seem to feel so right, things fall into place. Even when your scared it just is so right.... He shows you not to be scared and how much He loves you and how much He protects you day in and day out. No matter what time, no matter what circumstance He is there. Just AMAZING!! I am in complete awe... Thank you God for working in my life! I pray that you work in everyone's heart and that they begin to understand the love you have for them.
