God Listens...

Psalm 116
1 I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy.
2 Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!
I love my job.  I have said it before, I am definitely in the right place, doing the right thing.  I love my job:-)

Part of the job is taking part in personal plan meetings and reviews throughout the year.  I have not had the opportunity to be a part of this aspect until the last few weeks.  In August, I start a temporary, 3 week contract at one of our locations.

I had the opportunity to meet the family of one of the individuals for a review meeting.

This meeting ended up with me sitting in my van, in tears, after everyone had left.  It was definitely orchestrated by God!!

I continue to be amazed when these things happen, and really I shouldn't be.  It is just a part of my faith. 

The mother had shared with me a very small snippet of their journey, as parents, and as their child.  It is exactly what I have been needing to hear.

Remember just a week or so ago?  This post about where Faith was going to end up in 5, 10, 15 years?  Us coming to terms with the fact that she may end up in a group home setting?  Realizing that we may not be the best equipped place for her to live?  Yeah, that one...

I was reminded tonight that God Listens!!  It doesn't matter how long it takes, we just need to continue praying and believing and thanking God that He will put Faith in the right path.  The right locations will show up, the right organizations will open. 

It is so hard for me to believe that God listens, because I want things done in my time.  I want my answers now.  I don't want to have to be patient and wait...Isn't that how we are raised?  In our microwave society?

I love my job.  I broke down when I realized that everything is going to be fine.  God is in control of it all. 

It was like I got the biggest God hug ever!! 

Thanks God:-)  I know now that you hear me...
