Answered prayer

Wow, God is awesome!!! Just yesterday I was praying so much about the whole job thing with Zach. Last night we really sat down and just talked about it all, trying to figure out what he should do, going over pros and cons, etc. We couldn't make a decision and I said to just wait and see what happens, that God would show us. I know waiting is so hard!!! Then when I went to bed I wanted to read a Psalm and I scrolled on the screen on my iPod and came to chapter 37. Here are some verses that stuck out to me:

v. 3 Trust in the Lord and do good
v. 4 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
v. 7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him
v. 23 If the Lord delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm
v. 34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way.

Isn't it awesome how God speaks to us??? Wow! Then this morning I awoke and prayed right away and read a bit of my Bible again. This morning I prayed that God would just give us an answer TODAY regarding the job thing, that he would make it VERY clear. Wow, I checked my email this morning and there was one from Zach. Here's what it said:

FINALLY got some job info… I called to talked to agent L, but he and agent J (the two guys working my application) are both deployed…so I talked to agent N, and he said that a message came down 4 months ago saying that they weren’t accepting MSgts no more, but that could change in the future…looks like we got our answer!
Is that NOT crazy!?!? Talk about being SO clear! THANK YOU, GOD!!! I still have mixed feelings about it...but I know God is in control. So we're here for at least 2 more years. It's just so nice to know that, so we can just settle in and not wonder if we're moving in a year. Although I must say I'm still having a hard time accepting the fact that we're still gonna be crammed in this tiny house with yet one more body!!! Lord, give me contentment!!!

Yay for an answer! 2 more years doesn't sound like much, seems like you just moved there.

Thats awesome! At least you know now. Your house may seem crammed but Im sure everything will work out and you will manage to fit in your house. Two years will go by fast, thne you can have a huge house
