Give and Take Take Take Take ...

EXCITING NEWS .... NEW JOB!!!  The Stillwater Spa at the Hyatt Downtown Calgary has hired me on as their newest Aesthetician!!!  Its pretty crazy ... It is the #1 Spa in North America ... I was told in my first interview that they don't hire Aestheticians with such little experience ... and here we are!  I have only 1 person to thank ... God!  

I find it very perplexing ... What have I ever done for Him that He gives me EVERYTHING I need and want?  I thought about this the other day ... He gives to me and I take take take take!  And then He gives me MORE!!  Its like the more we take the more He wants to give!  God is beginning to really shape and mold me ... No No No Let me rephrase ... I am at the point where I am giving everything up to let God do in me whatever He wants to do in me so that He can shape and mold me!!  Its not something he is just beginning to do, He has been doing it all along, I just haven't wanted to let Him, but I'm letting everything go!!  I see it more and more He just wants the best for His children.  I am not worthy to be loved by such an amazing God, but He chose me!

"Therefore, as God's CHOSEN people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:12-14,17

We are God's chosen people ... He chose you.  Think about that for a moment.  Why does He want me?  I have nothing to offer.  I'm not perfect.  But He wants me!  That is crazy!  I can't get my head around it!  

I don't want God, I need Him.  God doesn't need me, He wants me!!

So with taking this new job ... I am doing it in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him!!!  This is more than I could have ever asked or imagined from Him.  

And yet again ... He gives ... And I am taking!
