Change as a Constant

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:7

This is where we stand today.  School starts in about a week.  Job situations are in flux.

I’ll be unemployed after next week.  The final public hearing for the shelter is scheduled for September 15.   I can hardly believe it, after working on the project for 2 years and nearly 9 months.  It will take awhile to get my head around that fact.  Meanwhile, the newly created full-time position at the city I applied for and hoped to interview for got cut in the budget reorg.  Such is life. Things change.

Zac will start his sophomore year of online schooling September 3. Eek! Ruby starts 3rd grade the same day.

I’ve done 5 loads of laundry.  The sixth load rotates in the dryer as I type. I’ve folded all I’ve washed so far.  At least clean laundry remains a regular need in the universe.

I’m filled with anticipation and a little bit of dread.  How will this new year go?  What challenges will we confront?

I don’t know.  I can’t see into the future. My personal crystal ball looks cloudy today. As the Magic 8 Ball would say :  Try again later. But know the one who makes paths in the desert. He holds the future.

  1. Wow! What a perfect verse for me today! I journaled today that I feel like change is coming and prayed that the Lord would help me navigate through it..and trust Him when I can’t see very far ahead – ‘pathway through the wilderness’. Thank you for sharing, Susan!! xo

  2. Excitement is the key word in this scenario. Imagine, if the doors closed in your immediate future plans, what a wonderful plan GOD has for you right outside of the window. HIS plans for you are much better, much higher and more rewarding than anything you or I could ever plan for our lives. Look for windows in life and you will never be disappointed.
