There comes a time when actions count more than words but also you may want to count your blessings. When things go well in your life it is equally important to recognise that the Lord is blessing you and that your cup is full. When you feel that you are experiencing trials and tribulations then you may need to think hard and ask the Lord to help you get things right. Hopefully, your situation can improve quickly, whatever your downfall is, it may pick up again in a matter of months. However, you may not be off the hook so easily. You may have forgotten that the Lord is also your Heavenly father, Abba, and therefore entitled to train you in order to equip you for your calling.
Of course at the time of the trials, it does not feel anything like that. I remember that last year from September to Christmas I only worked for 2 weeks even though I regularly checked the papers and rang my agents The Lord showed me that I’d done something wrong earlier that year when I finished a contract abruptly for another one. I had to humble myself and put things right. I recall that at the time I’d found a whole pile of reasons why I was entitled to end things abruptly, still I was in the wrong. Later one my agent found me a great job, unexpectedly better in all areas..
It is a blessing to be on holidays! Saying that Steven is not on holidays yet and this week Cam is doing an internship, Imogen has been working in the tea-room. In spite of that, we have managed to spend quality time and see our friends. We are getting ready to go to France on Sunday, Valras plage precisely. Steven tells me that yesterday the temperature there was 38 degree Celsius so I should not forget to take sun cream lotions, a hat (I am the only one to need one!) and mosquito cream!
Not sure that I will be able to post again. Have a blessed August month and keep us in your prayers. Your sister in Christ. N.
