I have so much to be thankful for. But this week I’ll focus on God’s perfect timing. You see, my husband took a 20% pay cut back in March, and we’ve been hanging on, but barely. We were already tight when that happened, and now we’re even tighter. Over the summer we’ve sold furniture to make up the difference, he’s been working a ton of “extra jobs”, and we’ve cut all non-essentials. For example, my husband has only 3 days off the entire month of September. It’s tough, and it’s tight, but we’re ok
3 1/2 years ago my husband was in a car accident. He was hit from behind and our car was totaled and he was out of work for 6 weeks. It was rough. The other person’s insurance company did not want to pay for our expenses (and in the end, still didn’t pay them all), so we had to hire an attorney. GRRR. Well, the money from that accident finally came in this week. .. And, the next day the battery died on my van….. And, the day after that the coffee pot died….. Are you seeing what I’m talking about? These things may not seem like big deals to you, but when you’re already down to literally no money, something like a $100 battery or a $50 coffee pot IS a big deal. There have been a few other emergencies as well, and in the end we’ve not been able to do what we wanted with this money.
We could have looked at it one of two ways:
- Why???? Why is that we finally have some money and can get this or that that something freakin breaks????????? AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! or…..
- Wow! God made sure we had that money to cover these expenses when they happened
We choose option 2. And, it serves as a reminder that, while God works in our lives ALL the time, we don’t ALWAYS see or feel it. If we went with number 1 we wouldn’t see God.
I hope this reminds you to always look for God in every situation. Because He’s there, it’s just a matter of whether you’re seeing Him or not
