Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God. Give her everything she deserves! Proverbs 31:30

Waiting

So I left to go to lunch a little while ago (something I hardly EVER do) and I was listening to Natalie Grant's Cd Relentless when I heard a song on the cd that I never really paid attention to before but today it had MEANING.

Make a Way

She was only seventeen
Wild at heart and following her dreams
Even she was pretty, got a ticket to the city
Where she'd find her place on the cover of a magazine
It was only but it would lead the way
To the door of a man where she'd throw it all away
He said they'd take it slow but little did she know
She'd be all used up by the end of the day

But she was strong, she would survive
Ambition would be her drive

I'll make the way
I'll do whatever it takes even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday I'll make a way
Here me say someday I'll make a way

Where did she go wrong
How did she get here
Living hard and looking older than her years
Miss Little Bigtown trying to hold a job down
Just doing what she could to choke her fears

But she was strong, she would survive
The spark of hope that kept her dream was not alive

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday I'll make a way

Walking down the road
In the city where she'd come with so much hope
See her vision had long died
Along with all her pride
When she found herself at the end of her road
She heard angels through the doors
Of a church she'd passed a million times before
Inside the choirs song was ringing
Since she'd found herself believing
Out there maybe there was something more

And so she bowed her head to pray
She cried Jesus please make a way
And she heard Him say

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though you may not understand
Today I'll make a way
Hear Him say today He'll make a way

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Today He'll make a way
For you He's gonna make a way
For you He'll make a way


The song suddenly spoke to me in a different way. You see I have been really upset about my job lately and I DESPERATELY want something else. I know that this is not the job that GOD wants me to be in for the rest of my life so I am just waiting on another door to open. Today before lunch was stressful...my boss was talking about the next projects and he said that I might go to Puerto Rico-------------I know it may sound like fun but trust me it is NOT. I was scheduled to be in Birmingham until May so this really upset me. This is one of the reasons I HATE this job. I like stability and I don't like the fact that I never know where I am going to be working more than 2 weeks out! So anyway, when I left to go to lunch I was praying and crying out to God for Him to PLEASE make a way and soon because He knew how I felt and He knew that I wanted to be able to spend more time with my family and church and church family and that I couldn't do this with my job now. I was pleading with God. By the way my cd was not turned up when I was praying so I did not know what song was playing-----I prayed all the way to get food and the way back. While I was sitting in the parking lot eating I heard Make a Way playing and it was like God was confirming everything I knew He was going to do as my Jehovah Jirah (the Provider) and telling me YES TIFFANY I WILL MAKE A WAY!!!!!


I am so glad that God is who He is and He knows our concerns and knows what our desires are. And I am SO glad that He speaks to us (even through songs). I am trusting that God is making a way even as I am typing this right now!!!!
