Back in the Saddle

I have been a bit lax in my blogging, but I have a bit on, I don't know how I ever managed to get anything done when I had a job before, now with just moving, Christmas coming up and the new job, there is a lot to do. I am not complaining, it is just where I am at and it is good.

I have been back at work for 2 weks now, which has been sureal and very interesting to see where the company is at and where people are at. I left this company nearly 2 years ago and I was very frank about some issues with the company when I left, so it was good for me to swallow some pride walking back in the door. I am enjoying it at the moment and the timing is brilliant, God is very good like that. The driving has been ok, although I have struggled to get back into a rhythm of prayer, something which I took for granted I would be able to do. It was my driving and talking to God that led me back into relationship with Him, I have had and will continue to try to get back into that rhythm of natural conversation with someone who is that close. Does this mean I am not as close to God as I was before, I don't think so, I just think the nature of our relationship is different and this is a challenge to be closer still.
Tanya and I, with moving and baby and new job and stuff have not been praying together very much. All the things I have just mentioned there are an excuse, it is up to us to put God first, we are doing a little DVD course which is helping us get back to where we were. Consistency is important. Pray and read your bible, the rest is secondary.

Provided and ready to go

I have a car to use to get me to work and back for the next 2 months, which is a start, a real blessing, I have also had a couple of other people offer me back up cars if they are needed, which is just great, God has provided, His people have responded, I am really humbled by it all, brilliant.

Within the last month, we have moved to the exact right house, in the right place, with the space that is needed for us as a family and a place that can be used for the bigger vision of our lives.

My old company contacted me and have asked if I can come back to work for them, new, better shift pattern, good money, good conditions.

A car has been provided for me to go to work in and back up is there if needed.

And looks like Tanya will be setting up as a hairdresser, things are moving on that front too.

Things ain't perfect, but they are very good.

God is good, He is faithful, if He says He is in it, He is in it, He will not let you down, hold on to the words He has given. What He says in the light, is still relevant in the dark, morning does come.

Moved and Online

I have moved and after the mother of all battles with BT, I am online, it has been tough going and I have been really busy, which is really good, yet I have not been organised, which is now starting to take its toll. It is all once again to do with balance, it is one thing to be resting, another to be doing and yet you can do and feel like you are getting nowhere, I don't know if that makes sense.

I am still getting things sorted in our lovely new home, I am glad to say I am have been busy with some speaking and organising some really cool things, but I need to be on top of things. I have also been offered a job, with my old company, the problem is, I have no car, if God is in it, one will be provided, yet we will see.

Things are good, yet we are still a family of six and we have a lot of daily stuff to deal with and I think my personal prayer right now, would be to give me patience in the small family things, the big things will sort themselves out and God is in them, He is also in the little things, so I must relax and enjoy and be joyous in all things.

More to come, bye for now.
