God has proven to be so faithful - I know He doesn't have to prove it, but He has definitely shown it to Luke and me lately. I tend to stress out and forget the big picture, worrying about what's to come rather than relying on God to bring it to pass in His own time. Today I was reminded so much of His faithfulness, particularly through various members of our new church. We spent all day involved in church activities; we're attending a new members class at All Saints, and it was absolutely wonderful. And we had community group again tonight. Just a few weeks ago, we knew absolutely no one in Austin, and now we're meeting new people every week and finally making some friends. I've had trouble finding a job, and now I have an interview tomorrow with a bakery. Last weekend I just broke down - money's tight, the job search was dismal, Luke works a lot and I don't have girlfriends here to call on. My faith was so weak...I lost all sight of the blessings God has bestowed on us. I lost sight of what my hope should be in - not in the signs that God gives us sometimes to let us know He is here, but in Christ alone. I should be focusing more on Christ, because He is ever constant, rather than on what does or doesn't go my way each day, if my expectations are met or not.
