Life has been busy! This past weekend my sisters and Aunts threw me a personal shower...and O my goodness did it get personal! :) I'll have to post pictures later. Last night JP and I went and bought our bed! It was such a good price, that we couldn't pass it up! Plus, it hit me that in three 1/2 weeks we will have to be moved in somewhere! I can't believe I'm going to be living with a boy! (said like Monica Gellar). I can't believe I'm only Janna Elton for 3 more weeks! I can't believe I'll be in sunny Mexico in 3 weeks from Saturday! It's all so soon! I use a lot of !!!!!!!!!!
I have no plan for the future...in sight. JP and I are trying to be content where we are at because there is a possibility it is our future for a little while. The last few months I've been stricken with fear over worry about jobs, a home, and income. It has been accompanied with many doubting questions towards God. Then I read this in my devotional (which if you haven't noticed is amazing!): Humility is grown in the desert. Even John the Baptist, while in prison had moments where he doubted who the Messiah was. Faith and fear are antithetical- Jesus expects us to trust him in the storms of life. Even those who walked with Jesus, the disciples, and saw his miracles, were skeptical and fearful in the storm on the boat.
He controls all nature and can control our stormy human situation, as well as give us peace!
