Lamentations 3:28 (The Message)

28-30When life is heavy and hard to take,
go off by yourself. Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer. Don't ask questions:
Wait for hope to appear.
Don't run from trouble. Take it full-face.
The "worst" is never the worst.

Wow I haven't been keeping up with my blog. Maybe its because I feel life has been one crazy thing lately. Where do I start?! So we bought a house, got a dog, my brother moved in, trying to find a new job, school, and the stress of trying to make it all work... See I tend to worry too much about stuff, like I freak out over maybe not having enough money or not making my sales at work, or a random assortment of other things like not knowing my dog couldn't eat the nylabone after I let him chew it up into little pieces, yea a piece could get caught in his intestines and sever them about six months down the road, so I am sort of letting go and letting God on that one. I know he spit most of the pieces out, I just am praying to goodness he's ok. Because let me tell you amidst all the stress of life that little dog is a gift from God. Not to be bragging or anything but the little guy adores me and it's totally a wonderful feeling. He follows me around and sits on my lap, and even trys to lay on my computer when i'm on it to get my attention... I think God knew I needed a little pal to love and take care of. He is pretty much mine and Kyle's kid... Such sweetness. But anyways back to my worry problems, it is pretty much the biggest lesson God has been teaching me lately. That God is in control. Like sometimes I feel when I worry hes yelling at me saying "JENNI! JENNI! Am I not the God of the entire universe? Do I not solve huger problems than yours? I promise you no matter what happens to your silly little material things, I LOVE YOU, and you have amazing other people that love you, this is all that matters in this universe so quit worrying!" It's like sometimes that I forget how huge God is and what he can do when we trust in him. I like these words from a third day song Call My Name: "
Call my name, say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive!"
God is not just sitting around up there, his love is always alive and working. So yea...
And no matter what happens God must be my focus.
So I have a job interview tomorrow. Its for a position for TCF in corporate dowtown Minneapolis. I really hope I get it. I could take the train when it starts in the fall and get to work like in a half hour, and take the bus for now. fun fun..
