ANSWERED PRAYER...

Sometimes we wonder...sometimes we pray for a long time with no real answer.  Sometimes we figure God said "no" or "later".  But sometimes it's very clear. 

 I've been praying for a couple of years, actually, I started when my youngest was in 11th grade, for what I might do with my time after he graduated.  I've volunteered at school and at church in the same tasks for many years and it was starting to feel like a burden.  No kids in school anymore so that's ending, but should I make a change?  Should I start thinking about returning to work?  Get more education?  Volunteer somewhere else? It's a great blessing to have options, but I was really wanting to let God direct my decision...

Our women's ministry director at church felt the need for a change, so she resigned this summer.  It was a surprise to me.  I was asked to step into her role.  Not feeling totally qualified, but confident that God can provide what I need to do this task, I accepted.  It's a ministry that I love and have helped with in a number of different ways through the years.  It will be a new challenge in some ways and stretch me a bit!  Looking forward to it and loving how clearly my prayer has been answered!
