A lazy day..but tough one's approaching

Today was pretty much a free day..did very little work till now...I got my exam schedule for that postponed exam and its on August 12th.I got a call from the faculty co-ordinator for out internship, and I'm supposed to start tomorrow. I called the HR manager of the company and I shud be there tomorrow by 10.00 am  . I just hope things are not too difficult for  me there.
I just thought I'd read the book of  Jonah today and finish it today.I should be starting it by off I go for lunch; then shud apply for the RBI Officers test and then I would be here at home reading Jonah.
A friend of my read this quote in his devotional book and sent it to me
"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle. But you shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God. Not in doing what you like but in liking what you do is the secret of happiness."
--James M. Barrie
ah..would put down wht I find beautiful in Jonah at nite..

The amazing thing you find from the book is simple 'If God gives you directions and you dont follow, HE gives you free transportation to the place HE wants you to go.It would'nt be pleasant when God does that but HE will make you fullfill his will'

Looking at my life I find' I havent quite been obedient to God. Hope HE isnt harsh on me..I guess this holiday I got to read the book of Jonah was just to help me rewrite the wrongs in my life.Mabbe He's giving me another chace,hope I dont miss it.Praying for all my xanga buddies and others around..God be with you all,keep me in prayer too

Well its good to that you are going to be an intern - the experience will always payout. That is a very good quote and i hope that i can start looking at work that way and my daily tasks.

Jonah's a wonderful book - God does get His work done, no matter what we have to say about it. The Barrie quote is wonderful as well -- It reminds me something of the teaching in Romans 8:18-39.
