This is a quote I heard one morning last week while I was driving to work.
"A fruitful life needs the rain just as much as it needs the sun."
I shared this with my facebook friends, but I also want this to be in my journal so that I can reflect back days, weeks, or years to come. We all need to be reminded that there is a time and season for everything. God does not make mistakes. Nor does he assign you someone else's role in life. Be obedient and allow God to use you where you are, He knows where he placed you. We must trust and obey.

1 For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
2 A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
6 A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

standing on His promise

On Saturday, August 8th, Jonathan (my husband of one year) became a licensed minister in the International Pentecostal Holliness Church (IPHC)! This was a very exciting day for both of our families and the other 10 couples being licensed. Dr. Doug Beacham prayed over us as well as spoke into our lives. As he asked the new ministers if they were committed to this work he then said, "You now live in a glass house, your windows and shades will always be up, and your doors have been made wide open." I know this is true as I was raised a preacher's kid.
When I was in high school I knew God had a plan for my life, and I felt strongly that I was going to be a minister's wife. As of 8/8/2009 I am a minister's wife. Jonathan is in Divinity School at Campbell University, earning a Master of Divinity. As well as pursing ordination through the IPHC. I could not be happier knowing God has us in the palm of his hand. He is daily walking beside us. Although some days we may not feel Him; I know He is there, guiding and protecting.
