1. God is in control and places you where He wants you
"We have no right to decide where we should be placed, or to have preconceived ideas as to what God is preparing us to do. God engineers everything; and wherever He places us, our one supreme goal should be to pour out our lives in wholehearted devotion to Him in that particular work." - Oswald Chambers
one supreme goal = pour out our lives in wholehearted devotion to God wherever He places us
"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might..." - Ecclesiastes 9:10a
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." - 1 Corinthians 10:31
"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 3:17
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men..." - Colossians 3:23
2. God will be with you wherever you go
One of my favorite verses is Joshua 1:9 and it says: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
And there is a verse like it found in Deuteronomy 31:6: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
So wherever God places you, remember, He is in control, He placed you there for a reason, and He will be there with you. Our job is to work unto Him with everything we have!

December 30, 2011. Ric & Julia Miller.
Julia is my 'twin' sister.
First, we took engagement photos:
She asked me to be the maid of honor in her wedding.
Apparently for me, that included making the save the dates, the invites, the programs, and so much more.
And I was alright with that. It was an adventure!
