Waiting on the Lord

December. Unbelievable. I'm so thankful that this year has been the best one yet. Deepest with the Lord, most exciting figuring what I'm going to do with my life, recognizing where God has placed me, growing, learning, traveling, and working! Not many people believe that they know what field God has called them into...especially at the beginning of this year, when I was sixteen. Not many people know what college they want to go to at the ripe age of sixteen! Now that I've had about a year to learn, I'm ready. I'M SO READY for what God has for me.
I mean...waiting on the Lord is something I've been doing ever since January of this year. Okay, just kidding. For what seems like the beginning of this year. You know, sometimes just waiting on Him brings you the most precious moments in the relationship. You're forced to rely on Him and wait patiently.
Because of my braces, I've had designers or photographers pass me by. That was my post a few back on how one of the biggest runway shows in the ATL booked me, but later because of my braces, I was cut. But I sense the light at the end of the tunnel. My restlessness is almost over because: my appointment yesterday with the amazing Paul Yurfest gave me impressions for a retainer--and two weeks after that THEY COME OFF! Now don't get me wrong--I'm so thankful for them. There is no way under heaven I could be doing this if my teeth were still a train wreck. I'm thankful.

I feel like something's going to happen soon afterwards. I might be wrong, but I just have a feeling. I've been told by a few people that the sense it too, and are praying for what the Lord might have for me. Friends, prayer would be appreciated as I follow whatever plan the Lord has for me. I'm still prayerfully discerning.

Well, I'm reading a book that's totally stirring my heart and causing me to reassess how close Jesus and I are. It's called Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. He's challenging me to become a Completely Committed Follower of Christ. (CCFC) Next post, I'll write my response to it, and hopefully grab your heart as well.
