dare i catch up?

so the weekend provided me an opportunity to break the "blog everyday in may" challenge. that didn't take much. so since for today's question the answer is simple, i will catch up from my weekend absence. so first thing is first: what do i do? well..i unfortunately don't "do" what i went to school for yet...so currently i am a college recruiter. although it is not my dream job, and not something that i would like to do for the rest of my life, it was a good job opp. to take when i moved to michigan back in september, and is flexible and allows me to work from home.

favorite quote:
 “God is God. Because he is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what he is up to.” Elisabeth Elliot

i love this quote because to me, it is not just a quote but also a challenge. simply, God is God. i know that. it would be silly to say that i don't know that he is worthy of my trust and obedience. i'm an challenged always to remember to find rest no where but in his "holy will". it is so easy to rely on myself and give credit to myself when things are going well, but then if i am going through troubles or a down time, then i look to God to see what is going on and what the deal is. "unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what he is up to"...i love that part. i don't know what God is doing in my life, unless he reveals it to me. my faith should not be asking questions. my faith is looking to God and searching the word for direction and wisdom. i could honestly list a whole lot more from Elisabeth Elliot, and if you haven't heard of her look her up, read her stuff!
