Our family has had a rough year. We've had it rough in many ways, financially being one way. We are behind in almost every bill including the mortgage. We have had extra expenses because of health issues and less income.
God has used this in many ways.
First, I've learned to be content and live in the moment rather than freak out about how we are going to make it tomorrow.
Second, bad financial news no longer messes with my emotions. What a big victory this is!
OK, I realize I've gotten a bit off track here because I meant to write about what God told me today. I have been seriously considering going down a new career path that would have given us a steady and good income.
God spoke to me about it. I could do that. I could choose to take a different career path and yes, I would have a steady income, but also I would miss out on the plan God is working out in our lives. I would miss out on many blessings. I would miss out on some very specific ministry opportunities that wouldn't be available if I go the safe way.
So, I am sticking with God's plan. I won't go the safe way. I'll keep doing what I am supposed to do and wait for Him to bring about the blessing in God's time.
God's never late. He's always on time.
