Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

"He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live."

this is where i used to work. i quit this job to move to san angelo. the link is an article my dad sent me about how that small company recently laid off dozens of people and shut down three of its papers. i know they shut down two others earlier this year.

i know i've referenced my beth moore "believing God" bible study many times on this blog lately, but it's just outstanding what God is revealing to me. this week's homework is about how "God has been there all along." we've been going through our lives, one-fifth at a time, and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal to us where God has worked and revealed Himself throughout all the years of our lives. talk about awesome. one of the scripture references beth uses to show how involved God is in the lives of people is acts 17:26-27: "from one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out to Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us."

i had already been believing God brought us to san angelo for many a long list of reasons.

add another one to the list.

can He truly love me so that He determines where i should live? not only does He love me enough to lead me, to order my steps, but He loves me enough to use my dad to reveal a confirmation like this one?

You are so wise and all-knowing, my King. help me to remember Your words and the truth that You always know what's best for me. Your attention to detail in my life is more than i can even comprehend. my heart bursts with love for You.
