Communication is key in any relationship, one with the Lord is no exception. Therefore, I've started a prayer/scripture journal and set aside time for more regular prayer and study. A brief prayer and verse hunt in the morning and a question with an in-depth study in the evening. Then yesterday the funniest thing happened. 
As some of you know, I've been considering my internship. Weeks ago, one came up for the summer and the process for getting into it was confusing. This didn't help with my tendency to freeze up on especially important decisions. So, I kept it simple and prayed, "Lord, if this is the right internship, open the door wide. If not, slam it in my face." 
After sending in my application, I received no response and assumed rejection. 
Closed door, on with summer, that's fine. 
From yesterday morning's verse hunt: "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."
Proverbs 16:3
The day proceeded as normal. Then, right before bed, I looked at my email and saw a response for the internship much later than I expected.
FREAK OUT, FREAK OUT, FREAK OUT!!! At that point, it looked like the door was swinging wildly on its hinges. So, I went into the deeper study of the day,
"The Lord works out everything to it's proper end--even the wicked for a day of disaster." Proverbs 16:4
"In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps." Proverbs 16:9
The Lord's answer: "What's changed? The door is open, just in my timing, not yours. Finish what you started and don't worry." 
My tears stopped flowing, and I settled. The worries shrank into irrelevancy and I felt more than a little silly. What was I afraid of, anyway? It is interesting to see just how little substance is behind fears for the future. Put the candle of faith to it, and you'll see it was nothing more than a shadow cast on the wall by your nightstand.

Such a great testimony. Thanks for sharing.

Seeing God’s hand in one’s life is a most blessed thing indeed!  

Just think the more and closer we get to Him, the more will we see of His hand in our life’s. 

Blessings, 

Much love in Christ, Not me
