I just completed a thorough breakdown of my current budget and expenses; I have 4 months until I am completely broke! $1700 a month isn’t exactly enough to splurge on; each day’s amounts counts to the higher total- I’m sorta sad to say, but I think I’m going to have to cut down on the coffee- but then again, how else will I spend each day in the city?
Thursday night, I spent some time streaming through lists of “Things to do in NYC on Friday’s” and then made a similar search for ideas for Saturday. I didn’t make a committed effort to follow these sites’ recommendations – instead, I met new people! Sunday morning, I was ready for New Mercy and its community- did I leave questioning whether I should visit other churches? Yes. Towards the end of my NYC food tour with 4 of New Mercy’s core members, Michelle suggests that I should look into Catalyst Agape Center.
Catalyst Agape titles their small groups, “Lifegroups”? Their pastor’s name is “Sam?” WOW. Please don’t tell me that out of the 4 daughters that he has that 2 of them are named River and Eden. I will cry. *O wait, here it is on his bio: “Anna, Kristen, Trinity, and Sage”. I wonder if Sage is the cutest out of the bunch. I should check them out.
I met with Soul and Fusion today- both of the people I were to see didn’t greet me today- but I guess my book was passed along. I took digitals in both offices and both will reply at a later date. Meanwhile, I have to remind my agency to set me up with more meetings – I will be completely open book tomorrow. Lord, keep my eyes open and while my thoughts may travel, I pray that they would not settle on doubt- rather, would I re-focus and expense all that I have at your feet so that I can truly be set free. Thank you that you do not budget your love, but it overflows and pours into any stream willing to live life.
