grateful, enthused, fortunate, thrilled, thankful, joyful!

At this moment, I can just picture God laughing at me as I'm completely filled with excitement over a summer job. You see, all this last term I have been under a lot of stress as I try to apply for jobs, scholarships and get through the last bit of school as I dream of summer and freedom.
I was disappointed as I wasn't hired back to Tadmor again but it was really God's way of telling me that I needed to go to Summit. Summit is a mission trip that I will be going on after school ends for two weeks. It is with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and we will be serving homeless in Portland and I'm thrilled!
I'm pretty sure that is where God wants me to be because he has removed every obstacle that was in my way of getting there.
First he crossed out Tadmor that wouldn't have let me make the trip at all.
Then I had no money, and in three days I fund-raised it all! By they way thanks everyone for contributing your support, it helped so much!
Then, the final obstacle, my dream job. I had the perfect job lined up at the YMCA in Tacoma where my mom, sister and our most lovely neighbors worked. I would be a day camp counselor and play around with little kiddos all summer, which is absolutely what I love! However, I didn't get the job. I prayed about it and thought wow goodness God you really want me to go to summit, because the job would have required me to leave summit a week early. So it's been a couple weeks since that happened and I've just been trying to put all my trust in God that he would provide me a job. So just the other night I said okay here God take this stress and I trust you'll come through.
So yesterday I was walking out of my last midterm and I had a miss call from washington which was kinda funny. Sure enough the YMCA day camp had called me back. I called back to see what all the fuss was about and you'll never guess, they offered me the job because a spot opened up! I squealed, jumped and screamed as soon as I got off the phone! Oh and the best part is, they are totally cool with me missing the first bit of camp and want me to go to summit! I'm so filled with excitement and God is so good! He really does provide! Silly me, all I needed to do was trust in Him and everything worked out! Now all I have to do is get through stinking finals.
God is great, trust in Him for he works everything out for good for those who love Him:)

Ecclesiastes. 3:11
"Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end."

Romans 8:28
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
