Decisions for the New Year...

I am currently searching out new opportunities for employment... it's a very strange thing. When you have worked at the same place for over eight years you become comfortable there. I know there are other places and other opportunities available but at the same time, it just seems strange. I am praying about this a lot because it's a big decision for me. Is it time to leave this company or just this position? Is it time to branch out and meet all new people and learn new things? 

This morning as I was reading my Bible the portion from Psalms was this:

Psalm 146:1-8:
Praise the Lord!
Let all that I am praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord as long as I live.
I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath.
Don't put your confidence in powerful people;
there is no help for you there.
When they breathe their last, they return to the earth,
and all their plans die with them.
But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them.
He keeps every promise forever.
He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.
The Lord loves the godly.

It just reminded me of the Truth that I know... that God will take care me and my family. He has a place for me and He knows exactly where He wants me. I have placed my hope in Him so I can be joyful and know that He will take care of everything that concerns me. I don't understand what's going on and why but I do know that He does and really... that's all that matters! So... Praise the Lord! Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise Him as long as I live!

May you have a blessed New Year and may it be spent Praising the Lord with all that is within you!

I love this portion of scripture! And your application of it to your own life is wonderful! I know He has plans for you -- to give you a future and a hope! It will be exciting to see which way He directs your path. I'll be praying for you my friend! I know you hear His voice and you'll be obedient when the time comes to take whatever steps He shows you.
