God day

Well, actually, I meant to title this "Good Day", but my typo came out "God day"; I thought I would leave it, at that, lol.  I had a pretty good day at work, with some encouraging comments from my supervisor at work, and I am actually allowing myself to hope that this could become a permanent position.  It's just funny how this job, which I applied for with really no hopes of it being a 'real' job.  I was skeptical all the way up until I received my first paycheck-direct deposit, with taxes taken out.  Now that I think about it, God gave me exactly what I needed, really, and when I needed it.

After having been out of work for 2 1/2 years, God knew that it would be better for me to start back to work slowly, getting back to having to be on a schedule of some sort, and having to be somewhere at a specific time, every time and on time, as well as getting used to just being an employee again.  I can’t begin to explain how good it felt to receive my first paycheck, and to feel like I’m contributing to our household income, after applying to so many jobs, and trying so hard.  Granted, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind, but it has been a very humbling experience, and I honestly believe that God put this job before me for a reason.  Who knows, it could be a start to something much bigger in the long run. 

As a side note, I just have to mention how God is allowing me to appreciate people in my life.  I found myself today just watching my husband (of 25 years!) and smiling at what a wonderful husband he is, and how much I truly love him from the bottom of my heart.  Talk about a gift from God-he is it!! I believe 100% in my heart that God gave him to me to save me from myself, and I am SO grateful! Thank you, God!

“God, thank you so much for always knowing what’s best for me; I know that you have a plan for me, and I know that your plan is so much greater than I could ever hope for.  Lord, you are so loving and kind, and you know my heart better than I myself do, and you know how to guide me to do your will. I pray, Lord, that you will reveal your plan to me as I am ready to receive it, and lead me so that I may follow.  Lord, I love you and I praise you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
