Old notes taken mostly from my personal time with God. We're moving house again, so, I guess we're back to being, literally, pilgrims on the Rough Roads of Planet Earth. (Photo taken on a road to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, North Auckland, NZ, Dec 2009.)

Whoooaa, that was quick! As early as Monday last week (19th July) God neatly pulled me out of that jam. The enemy was de-fanged, just like that. Now I see this matter in a completely different light. God made this so straight-forward; unlike the guideposts I saw flickering here and there. This just spelled out everything so clearly. God is good, indeed, all the time. Now those two friends who prayed for me were really used by God. I pray, bless them my Father.
I accidentally scalded my left hand on the night of the 20th (Tue) when I was rushing to get dinner done so we could attend our Life Group. So, because of that injury we had to eat out and miss Life Group anyway. Now the skin on the scalded hand is really raw and hurting. And then I have to find a new mechanic for our car. So many things coming up now... and I knew this was coming. God always dealt with me this way. I never can get away scot-free. He is after all, faithful and true.
It's really late and I have to go to sleep now. Gud nite!
It's been a tiring week. Nothing really great. I just shopped and cooked and washed a lot. Hardly even had time to clean house. What with two more people in my house and they all eat different things!! Haha, this is THE life for me. It's hardly a life but it is still A life. God is good.
School's going to start again on Monday. Duh, that means I have to set my alarm clock every night again. But thank God, there will be some order back to my life. :)
I am caught in a snag in my spiritual life and I cannot write anything spiritual here without being a hypocrite, so, I am not going to try nor am I gonna embellish or make this sound pretty because it's not. I have at least requested prayer from a friend and the situation improved a bit, and that prompted me to ask prayer help still from another friend. I really pray I will ride over this, in God's mercy and grace. Probably, this is what is known as the Slough of Despond in the Pilgrim's Progress. I have been through something annoying before but this one's different, coz I actually don't mind it!!! Grrrr... this will require a lot of Grace from God my Father. I never thought I will be caught in this kind of situation ever... but here I am!!! So help me God my Father!!
