The last few weeks have been a little rocky. My part time employment came to an abrupt halt, my son moved back home after blowing a good chunk of our savings at school, and our money situation has gone from cramped to completely constricting. I have had some doubts about my current path. Is it really where God wants me to be, or is it my own selfish longings thinking that God has a plan for me.
The amazing thing is that God has started sending people into my life that are verifying I am on the right path. I have started to realize that a lot of the daily interruptions that used to irritate me are actually divine intrusions meant to focus my attention on the will of God in my life.
I am not under any sort of delusion that the path ahead will be easy, but it will be beautiful! When I relax in his presence, I am filled with a rejuvenation of spirit that empowers me to move forward in spite of my fears.
Money is tight! Big deal, money has always been tight, what’s new? He has gotten me through tight spaces before, he will do it again. I am choosing to focus on the blessings that he has already bestowed on me and my family. And, more importantly, I am focusing on his boundless goodness.
There are too many people in this world that need his love, his goodness, his mercy, and his healing for me dawdle in depression. People need Jesus. They need his love. I have never thought that I much to share with those around me that was of any value, but that’s not true. I have the most valuable thing in this universe, Jesus.
The more I open myself up to God’s calling the more opportunities to share his love appear. The less I hold back from my divine appointment, the more he fills my needs. So I welcome each intrusion and interruption I my life to help those that I care about, and those I have yet to meet.
I am a Christian, a wife, a mom, and a part-time basket case who wants to be a full time writer.
