More than meets the eye...?

i remeber this scene from the movie "The Ten Commandments" were moses steps up to the red sea, raises his staff, turns to the isrealites and says, " Now witness the power of God..." and then the red sea parted. what got me thinking was all the things that lead up to that moment. i mean all the things in moses life, that had to fall in to place, in order for him to part the red sea and lead the hebrews to safety. it started way back when pharoh heard of the prophecy among the hebrew slaves, of a savior sent by God to free them. he then sent out his guards to kill every hebrew male child of age two and under. this seeming to be wise i pharoh's eye's, set in motion a chain of events that brought the prophecy of the hebrew slaves to fulfillment.

why am i telling you this?

well i was thinking of all the things that had to line up, to get me to my appointment with the school. you see i work days, and the only time he could see me was, yup, days. but low and behold, The Lord steps in, i finish one job, go out of town, which was great, got to do some soul searching, came back, and the only job for me was at night. uh huh, guess who called the next day, the school. they were wondering if my schedule had changed, so they could get me in to go over the calsses in more detail. hold up did you just see what happened? i started to think about changing some things in my life, prayed and BLAM!!! things got turned upside down for me, just so i could get the ball rolling. WOW....

so, the meetng with the school went well. all in all, it was just mostly brochure stuff, and of course showing the bottom line( the cost), which still wasn't bad. actually quite affordable. i got a good vibe from them, which is probably what they're supposed to do, but it felt guenuine. ( again probably doing thier jobs, well ) they gave a tour, i got to meet some of the instructors, and they were cool people as well. but it wasn't until i left, that all of this hit me. how everything seemed to line up to get me there... hhhmm. more than meets the eye...?

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways aknolegde him, and he will make your paths straight."

Pslams 3:5-6

peace out
