I may not see the end of the tunnel but I see the light! Love this image. Just a beautiful scene on my route.

It has been over a week since my last post. I am still refining and defining my time management. I now have three driving jobs and need to make sure to keep everything in perspective. I miss my blogging community. I have tried to read and respond as much as possible. Although I will probably keep the three driving jobs as my occupation – need to make the money to pay the bills -I still have my focus on writing and photography intact. My relationship with Christ is a given.

This sunset was captivating in the distance. Although it wasn’t a rainbow, the colors were very engaging.

As I was working, I saw some pretty amazing images and have included them here for you to enjoy as well. I noticed that as I release my dreams and goals to the Lord, He makes a way and gives me revelation about myself of which I wasn’t aware. For instance, I actually love driving. Probably the only way you can actually work three driving jobs. Another aspect of driving is that I get to see some pretty amazing images. I can’t capture them all but He has been blessing tremendously in this area. One of the goals is to purchase a Canon DSLR for my images. Later, I will be adding the telephoto lenses as soon as I can. There were some distance shots that I would have loved to capture.

The open road is so inviting and this tree-lined street was a pleasure to see.

I would like to say that in delivery driving, I actually get a good amount of exercise and I needed to add that to my time management. Since exercise is now included without the gym, I am grateful. The focus right now is saving the finances for the apartment to stay consistent in my other goals. Paul inspires me to be content in whatever state I find myself. Finding the right apartment and the right church are at the top of the list now. I appreciate all the support from those of you following Glorious Impact. Though things have been extremely busy, the Lord is working everything out.

Todays Thoughts_May 23rdI will be posting the book review for “God’s Gonna Make You Laugh” by Noel Jones in June. I hope you all enjoyed the review on “The Confident Woman.” It surely helped me during the challenges that I recently faced. I have a great deal of hope right now. God is building my strength and my hope in Him is not just for the here and now. I recently had an experience that showed me that we will not be complete until Christ returns and we are transformed. He also reminds me that even though we are working on things here, our focus must always ultimately be on eternity. Paul said that if all we have is the here and now, our faith is futile. It is in vain.

I am so glad the Lord is transforming me daily. I am glad that salvation is a free gift and the rest is in His hands. The work that we actually do is because of our faith. That work is believing and obedience. I will work on posting at least three times a week. In the meantime, I lift all my sisters and brother out there in the blogosphere in Christ. Stay focused on what is important, your relationship with Christ and the rest will follow.
