I am back, in Colombia

I have not written anything like for above 3 years now. Right now i feel like doing it because a lot of things have happened in my life keeping me up and down. I moved from Canada to my home town, Bogotà, looking for new perspectives and following more than anything the voice of God. Shortly, a month after my arriving, i found a dream job working in the International Relations field, at a very prestigious high education institution in my country. Everything was working fantastic for me but then as usual, i realized that the person who is always smiling at you it is not always your friend. I worked with the best of me  but at the end my contract did not last more than 4 months and it was not renew because of budget ( or that is what i thought). What i learnt about this experience is that my trust has to be always in the Lord and not in the man: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD." Jeremiah 17:5 -9. So now, i am looking for a new job, learning that the plans that God has for my life are 100 times better than mine and He is the Almighty God: "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Jeremiah 29-11. It is difficult to internalize  this when you don have an apparently answer, but as hannah I decided to not longer remain downcast 1 Samuel 1: 18.  I have not yet received my dream   job nor the husband i have been praying for, but when i feel down because of this, these verses give me hope that the Lord is not late, He is just taking his time to give me the best. Praise the Lord!
