Will It be the same walk in 3 years?

So, I take a walk every night. I start at my place and walk all the way up and around the dinning hall , past the grade school and walk the bord walk through the Historical area ( that bord walk takes me right to my front door) and home!
You see, the ranch signed a 3 year contract with French Camp Academy (FCA), and IF the Lord would move the Ranch on after that ( we dont think that would happen) there is no one saying I would be going anywere with them.
So I was walking the bord walk the other night and a thought poped into my head " What if I am still walking this same bord walk, the same way, the same single status in 3 years?"
That got me down and depressed for a few days. I dont want to be still doing this alone in 3 years, and thoughts like that flew through my mind! And than..The Lord reminded me, ever so gently, of this amazing verse and promis He gave me:
" For I know the plans I have for you ,
this is the Lord's declaration,
plans for your welfar and not for disaster,
to give you a future and a hope!"
- Jeremiah 29:11-
So, you now what? If I am still walking that bord walk, the same way, the same single status, in 3 years, than thats ok, because it was His plan for my AMAZING life He has for me!
How nice it is to walk that bord walk with a smile on my face, and a spring in my step!
I belive with all my heart the Lord moving me from ALERT was one of the best things He could have done for me! He took me from a place were there was no issue' s of having to worry about never finding an amazing guy ( there were tons of godly young men who came through all the time) to a place were the saying of every staff member to single staff who come on " If you came here to find a marrage partner better stay away!"
It has given me the confidance that even in the "dry" place He can do miracles " IN HIS TIME!"
For now, I sit in a single state, that I am learning to love, and love with all my heart! Your prayers for me in this area are coveted! <3

Oooh, Joanna! I like the new layout! Very cute.

You're so right about God. His plans are amazing! SO often, because I don't know what they are and I can't see what's around the corner, I choose to believe that His plans are BAD, that they'll be harmful to me, against my own desires, whatever. All because I don't understand. But we don't have to understand, do we? That's where FAITH and TRUST comes in. If we knew, we wouldn't need faith. Or HIM.

Keep on loving and living! <3
