Trying to be patient

I really am trying to be patient. I know what you are thinking, “but Daryl you haven’t even finished at Ranger Lake yet you still have time.” But what you don’t realize is that this is the first time in over 10 years where I haven’t had a plan. From high school on I always felt led from one step to the next. Oh it’s not like I wasn’t allowing God to work in my life. Let’s get this out of the way, I do believe that God has led me to where I am today and that each of my past jobs have been exactly where God wanted me at that time. However, throughout the past 10 years I’ve always felt that the direction and future was certain, or at least felt secure in the plans I had, and that they lined up with what God had in store for me.

So this leaves me with thoughts of excitement, freedom, scared, and in a state of total unknown for my future.

I’m trying to be patient…

I know that God is in control and that the decisions that have led to this point are the correct ones.

Really trying…

I’m getting the feeling that having God be completely in control at this moment is much harder than other events in my life. I must remember to trust God with my future, my work, my everything.

So I must wait, I must listen and hope that God reveals his dreams for my life and that decisions and plans I have become his plans and dreams alone.

I’m trying and will continue trying as I journey into this next stage of my life.

      Not entirely sure long term. But in the meantime, hope to do some freelance graphic/web design and maybe get a job as a barista in Saskatoon somewhere just to help pay the bills. Thankfully my wife is working fulltime as a Children’s Pastor as of this August.
