God is Good....

All the Time and All The Time....God is Good! It has been a whirlwind of a week. 8 days ago I sat down and looked at the same budget that I have looked at for years...Same numbers...same everything. I wanted to know where we sat on me being able to leave my job. I grabbed the calculator and went to adding away. Asked my hubby how much he made and in an instant realized that I din't have to work. Of course, he did remind me of the fact that we tend to like to eat and engage in activities and fun stuff that do cost money. I reassured him I was not going to quit on the next day. But I couldn't help but feel this overwhelming sense of peace. And I was grinning from ear to ear--I knew it wasn't because I didn't have to work...I would go stir crazy if I stayed at home!! As I laid there that night praying, I realized the greatness in this whole scenerio I just went through and the reason for the peaceful feeling. You see those are the same numbers I have looked at time and time again. But that night I could see the cup half full instead of half empty... every other time I had done this all I could focus on was what we would loose if I left my job. It was only with the help of God that I was able to see the "cup half full instead of half empty"!! Pastor Dee gave me the advice to pray for "when" and the ability to know when He was guding me. I realized that evening that it was part of His attempt to guide and show me "when". I went to Bible Study the next night and testified to this and told everyone about he "half-full cup"(Tuesday)--which honestly looks completely full. Wednesday, I received a call for an interview for a job that I wanted to try for but thought I did not have a shot. Thursday, I interviewed and Friday morning I received a call and was offered the job. Folks---this was a God Thing! I have been waiting for years for an opportunity like this and it has come...I believe that it was solely due to the fact that I gave this whole thing up to God and let him control the outcome! God is Good! I know you have all seen this lighthouse before but I felt it so fitting for this post!

Isn't that so like God? He's so ready to bless us when we give things over to Him! TFS
