So applicable to where we are today…full circle almost. Only this time, when I was told my position was being eliminated due to the economy, I didn’t stress…I just felt God’s got this.
From this past year:
Ever since I received word yesterday that this is my last week, I’ve been a little stressed. I’m thinking, “How will we pay the rent??”. We are doing okay…we don’t have a lot of extra stuff going on. We eat out pretty often (I’m not even counting Coffeebucks). We may have to tighten our belts.
Anyway, so I was stressing about it. I have a friend who helps with the cleaning every two weeks. I was thinking about letting her know we wouldn’t need help (although I desperately need help). This morning in the shower I realized I am out of shaving gel. I thought, “Well, I probably shouldn’t buy any of that (all of $3??) for a while. It’s all those little things that add up.” Then I felt perfect peace come in and say, “No. Go ahead and take care of needs. Get the house cleaned. Don’t be extravagant, but don’t worry.” I feel at peace.
God’s got this.
I feel so relieved…I can’t explain it. I am not quoting scriptures and standing on promises. I’m not calling special prayer meetings. I just know that He’s got a plan and we are going to be okay.
