A LONG Time Coming!

"The Lord is my light and my salvation -- Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life --of whom shall I be afraid!"
Psalm 27:1
It has been a LONG time since I have posted anything and think that its a good time to update. A lot has happened and changed since June. Summer is over and Fall is past and Winter 2010 is upon us, soon to be 2011. WOW what a difference a few months can make. In these months I have worked my summer job... stressed out about a job for the school year, GOT a teaching job and now teach at a local elementary school... I was so consumed by these things that I know I often forgot to rely and fully trust in the Lord. It's quite funny to look back and think "Wow, Carin how much easier would life have been if I just gave it to HIM!" Starting a new job and moving into that next stage of life, the "Real World," is SUCH a hard thing. I'm learning more about myself then I ever have in the past and God constantly brings up things, some are fun and exciting and others are a little harder to swallow! But I am constantly reminded of Psalm 27:1 that God is my stronghold, my light and my salvation. I have NOTHING to fear or be afraid of!
Another sweet and new thing that is happening is that I am going to Cambodia for a month this summer to teach English!! With this decision and through the whole process (Which has just started :) ) I have already found that constant reliance and full trust in HIM is what will get me through this process!
I am so comforted by the promises of God's Word!
