Quick Update

It's been a while since the last post. I guess its that time of the yeat when things get crazy.

I have been consumed with papers and projects for the last two weeks. These will come to a head and all be gone in another four weeks. I will not need to do any more research projects for a long while.

School will be over with on the second week of December and I will have to go back to reality. I have no idea what the future has in store. I am excited and terrified at the same time.

One one side, Dana and I feel completely in line with what God wants us to do right now. There is no peace like being there. I am excited about what our next step is going to be, even though I don't know exactly what it will be.

On the other hand, I know that God's plans are not my own, and that terrifies me. His plans require us to make decisions that sometimes do not make logical sense and that is what scares me. It requires us to step out in faith even if those close to us think we are crazy.

The good news about all of this:

God's plans are better than mine.
He is smart, I am not. All I have to do is listen.
His plan is to help us, not hurt us
After death, my eternal reward will not be based on how logical my decisions were, but rather how I followed God's Will.

Knowing all of this, I am definitely leaning towards excitement.
