"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer 29:11 (NIV)

I've been remiss in posting because of a whole mess of stress and turbulence in my life over the last couple of months. Among that stress was packing to put everything into storage, getting most of it into a storage POD and then at the 11th hr having the sale fall through. Have a second, approved offer/contract for the short sale of the house here in TX but are waiting now to find out when we'll have to close. Could be as early as the 31st, or around the 10th of September.....all depends on if the foreclosure date is moved out from 9/1 or not.............so this week is going to be crazy with getting everything else here packed up (final stages of it) and into the storage room. Still need to make final decisions on where I'm going to live as well...........sigh......

In the meantime, the following poem is one that I found while I was cleaning up the desk where my computer is at the present time. While not directly drawn from scripture, I thought it worth posting since I have been praying for the will of God to be done since I was laid off in September of 2007.

The Will of God,
Author Unknown

The will of God will never take you,
Where the Grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the Arms of God cannot support you,
Where the Riches of God cannot supply your needs,
Where the Power of God cannot endow you.

The will of God will ever take you,
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the Wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the Army of God cannot protect you,
Where the Hands of God cannot mold you.

The Will of God will never take you,
Where the Love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the Mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the Peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the Authority of God cannot overrule for you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the Comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
Where the Word of God cannot feed you,
Where the Miracles of God cannot be done for you,
Where the Omnipresence of God cannot find you.

1. The bank pproved second offer on my house.
2. For friends who have said they will help me move when needed, even on short notice.

Thank for posting that poem. I was feeling very discouraged tonight and it brought me to tears. It was exactly what I needed to hear right now. Thank you so much for posting it.
