It's been a few weeks now, but I found out that the SOW in Lakeside has been postponed until Fall 2011. I was devastated at first, but began to see the hand of God moving in my life. This season has been one of testing, for sure!
Within a week or so of finding this out, I had the possibility of moving to Germany for a year as a nanny through the agency I work for. I was thrilled about this opportunity, and prayed so much into it. I really felt like it might happen... Then, last week, I found out I wasn't accepted for the job. Again, I looked to God for answers and direction.
For now, I am pursuing the YWAM School of Worship in Denver, Colorado starting in April. It's looking positive so far, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I know that wherever this winding road takes me, God will be there - to hold, guide, protect, and speak to me.
There's a lot more to this journey... but I thought you all might like an update. :)
I am continuing to sell my CD to raise money for YWAM, and those who have donated already will still be apart of sending me wherever God leads in order to grow and mature me!
When I found out the spring school in Montana was postponed, my friend told me these encouraging words: "Sometimes God doesn't care so much about what we are doing for Him, but how our character is being formed into the likeness of Him." I know that even if I am not directly serving in music, or developing my skills in a strict setting, I will be living out the call of God on my life, in whatever capacity that looks like for the moment.
Thanks to all of you who have prayed, laughed, cried, and walked this journey with me. It's truly a blessing to have you along for this journey.
