There’s a song I used to sing called “He is able.” Every time I sing it, it speaks to me. One of the verses say “We’ve prayed as best we can, now we must leave it in His hands.”

I have prayed for a very specific thing to happen for a while. After a string of what seemed like unanswerd prayers I was getting pretty frustrated with God. I found myself not praying anymore for specific prayers. Just generally asking God to move. I think it was more like not my will but yours be done.

Well the news is that I am moving on up to the Northside. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Not really but I had to go with it. Anyway, I have been promoted to assistant manager at the Liberty starbucks. This is an answer to prayer. Its not the answer I was hoping for. I was hoping for a bag of money to fall out of the sky so Nate could whittle his 3 jobs down to one and focus on Restore. Maybe I could just work part-time with that bag o’money and focus on my children and Restore. It may not be the answer I was looking for but its an answer and its great. I am now going to drive 15-20 minutes as opposed to 45. I’m one step closer to getting my own store. Its a slight raise which is always nice!

I have no idea what God is up to but I believe his is able to do more than I can ask for. So I am thanking God today for this blessing.

    Congratulations Jill!! You really are a woman of Faith, you know. And you are doing what God asks of you and going where he is leading you. You just don’t know exactly where that is yet. But I’m sure it will turn out beautifully…

    Tapestry, right?
