Wow, it has been a while!!

I don't really know why I haven't blogged in so long... mostly from lack of things to write about.... and some laziness.

But a moment from last week won't leave my little brain....
I help out with the high school and middle school ministry at Grace Community Church. I "sell" snacks and candy before worship and then sit in with the middle school girls break-out group. Well, last week during the break-out, the awesome group leader (Lauren!) mentioned that God knows our future. She said it to make another point, just mentioning it passing, and kept on going with her train of thought. I realized that one of the girls had her hand clasped over her mouth, in astonishment. Lauren asked her what she was thinking, and she said, "God knows my future?!?! That is so awesome! It makes me love Him more!"
Do you not you just LOVE that?? I mean sure, I know that He knows my future, but it was such a blessing to watch someone realize how powerful and incredible He is. I have been thinking about that a lot lately - the joy of learning about God and how He does know my future, my past, my every breath. It has been a comfort since my future is so unknown to me.... if/when I'll find a job, where we will live in a year, kids, money, etc, etc. But, it is okay, because God knows my future, and that just makes me love Him more.
