Today I am linking up with Barbie over at My Freshly Brewed Life for the
‘The Weekend Brew.’
My word for this year is ‘TRUST’ and this quote below has been laid heavy on my heart.
After I was let go from my job (read more about that here), I was devastated to be honest with you. It was embarrassing; although, I had no reason to be embarrassed. Two months later, I stand back and look back on things, and it was the best thing possible. God took the stress away from me.
My days would start with my arriving at work by 6:30 a.m. at the latest, and I would work as late as 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. some nights. It was extremely stressful, and demanding. My anxiety levels would skyrocket on my way to work every morning as well as throughout the day. It was so bad that about a month prior to all of this I went to the doctor to get some medication for my anxiety. It was more than I could handle to be honest with you. I was a very unpleasant person to be around, and had a horrible outlook on life.
MY PLAN was for me to find another job, and then give my notice and leave. GOD had a different plan. Imagine that, right? I look back now and it was a HUGE BLESSING that he took this burden off of me.
I know what your thinking…. Has God answered your prayer, and have you found a job?
The answer is NO.
However, I’m trusting God that He is hearing my prayers.
He is hearing more than I could ever say.
He will answer more than I could ever ask.
He will give me a job, and it will be better than I could ever imagine.
However, it will be in HIS own time, and in HIS own way.
