Encouragement: God is not Finished With Me– or the Elevator Yet…

Welcome Back Readers~

I’m sorry I let another two months go by without posting anything. But things have been quite hectic around here. Let me give you a quick overview before getting into the main topic of today’s blog.

  1. My 41st birthday-It was pretty quiet around here for my birthday. Except for a few surprises of birthday balloons and a bouquet of wildflowers chosen by my dad, there were no surprises. Since my mother took care of my nieces for a week, we all decided to go to Olive Garden; it was pretty nice. Elizabeth even went out of her way to ask the waiter to “Decorate” my dessert with a Happy Birthday label with candy confetti. It was kind of cute.

  2. Getting The Vaccine- In several posts, I have debated on getting the vaccine. Well, I finally got on the list and waited for an email. In April, they emailed with my opportunity to get the vaccine. I took it. At that time, though, they only gave it in specific locations; this time, it was a college. I received Moderma. The first shot wasn’t too bad with just an achy arm; the second dose (three weeks later) was what did me in. I didn’t sleep well that night, and eventually, I forced myself to get up. Fighting congestion and body aches, I tried to get something done; But it was useless. It wasn’t until my assistant suggested getting Pedialyte and Gatorade and we got it that I started feeling better. I know it sounds like a weird concoction, but it works!

  3. Elevator Construction- If you’ve been following me long enough, you’ve probably heard me rant about my family’s troubles trying to get an elevator installed in our house. For those of you that are new, I will spare you the details except to say they are finally making progress. But it’s been a tough road full of confusion as well as disappointment. Here are a few pictures highlighting the making of the shaft for the elevator.

This brings me to the main purpose of this post. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, God sees you. Just like the elevator, you may not see changes immediately. But he is a master at working behind the scenes. Tauren Wells’ song “God’s Not Done with You” speaks to this issue of feeling incomplete and useless when it comes to being a part of God’s ministry team. Thankfully, Jesus can see past all of our insecurities and see who we were meant to be.
