God....There is no other word to describe Him other than simply amazing.  Over the past week Claire and I have been unpacking our things as we settle into our new home here in Bairnsdale Victoria.  The weather is wonderful and the scenery is simply awesome and I have found myself reflecting on the awesomeness of God's creation.  This week has also presented me with God-incidences that have blown me away. The first took place yesterday when I ran into an old Dysons workmate who I have not see for about 7 years.  Who would have thought that he too would be living in Bairnsdale.  The second took place tonight as again I was privileged to talk with an old workmate.  The conversation was amazing as we spoke about the things of God and I want to tell you that the conversation certainly brought joy to my heart as I heard how God had been working in this persons life.  This conversation was a real encouragement to me as God confirmed the calling that He has placed  in my own life. 
This week has  been tough, in fact the last few months  have  been tough as I have battled with anxiety and the attacks of the enemy.  The reality however is this. God will never place us in a place where He is not willing to resource and support us.  God always places us in the right place, at the right time, for His purposes.  So very often though we let our own insecurities and desires get in the way of what God wants to achieve.  In fact sometimes we remove God from the throne of our lives and place ourselves there.
Friends, God is always with us, His ways are the right ways and He is most certainly always at work around us.  The trick is though, even for those of us who have been on the journey for some time; is to trust Him completely and to allow Him to use us and shape us in the way that He sees fit.  Friends I don't know  what is  going on in your life, I don't know what God has asked  you to do.  What I do know is that God will  always place you where He  wants you and He is always with us.  Thank God for God-instances that reconfirm who He is.  Thank God that we serve a God that is so  much better than our stuff, so much bigger than our insecurities, doubts and fears.  If you do  not know this amazing God search Him out.  He will never let you down and He will be the best choice  you will ever  make.  Jesus said that He "is the way, the truth and the life..."  Choose Jesus.

Yet I am always with you;
    you hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:23-26
