This decision was not easy. I constantly was worrying about what people would think, or who I might disappoint if I didn't return, or if I was letting people down if I did not go back.
I've prayed, I've received counsel, I've prayed some more, I haven't had as much chocolate as I would like, but that's OK, and I have prayed some more.
This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to face...I desire to know God's will so much, that I was so nervous about not making the right decision.
So, without further adieu...
I, after getting some counsel, have decided that I will be staying home this coming year. Money was part of my decision, but not all of it. Since going to Grace I have felt the Lord move me into a different area of ministry, and I feel I should take this year to focus on how to pursue His will. I have complete peace about this decision. I know to some it may seem as if I am walking away from the exact place where I found God's will, but I am not. I did find God's will in Gaylord, and not even for one moment do I regret going last year.
I found God's will this past year, now I feel the need to take a step back, and find the avenue in which to pursue His will. I don't know if that means staying at home forever, or if I will be returning to Grace in the spring or next fall. I am completely open to His will and His way.
I hope that you all will continue to pray for me as I look for a job in my area, and also as I pursue ministry within my church and in other areas.
Thank you all so much....
See you soon!
