The fleece is dry.....


I have a board on Pinterest named  "Words of Inspiration".
Sometimes scripture and quotes are pinned because they just touch my heart right when I need to read them, depending on what's going on in my life at the time.

That's the case with the above.

I've prayed for several weeks about a certain situation.
(it has to do with this post)
asking God to give me sign after sign.....
you know what I mean?
Like Gideon, I've thrown that fleece out until it's about to get a bit ragged around the edges! 
 So, when I saw this, I knew it was yet another confirmation to what God's been trying to tell me for quite some time.
And, I know that it was for His purposes.....
in HIS plan for my life.
But.....
I also know that for whatever reason, 
God wanted me out of the other person's life, too.
Maybe I was somewhat of an enabler and He needed to be able to teach a lesson without my involvement.  I'll probably never know.

I do know this.....

Jeremiah 29:11-13
“For I know the plans I have for you,” 
declares the Lord,
 “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future.  
 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, 
and I will listen to you.  
 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

He is oh, so patient with His  children me!

Breathing in Grace,
