Things have been a little tight for us financially. Don’t get me wrong, we’re fine. But we’ve had to use up a lot of our cushion the last couple of months – braces for one kid and a new air conditioner for the in-laws’ house. And business is slow for my home business right now, so nothing much is coming in on that front.
So, anyway, I was praying about it. Mainly just, you know, could I please get some work in? I completely trust God to take care of us, he always has. But my mind would rest a little easier if I had some work.
Later on, I was cleaning out my purse (an embarrassingly big job). And, as you know if you follow my Facebook posts, I ran across a couple of Wal-Mart gift cards in my wallet. Figuring they probably had, like, 16 cents on them, I nearly threw them away. But at the last minute I thought I would go ahead and get online and check their balances. One of them had $70 on it, and the other had $6 on it. What?? No idea where they came from. One of them had “Happy Birthday” on it, with an original balance of $20. This is the one that had $70. What??
So, here’s the conversation:
Me: God, I trust you, but would you please send me some work so I won’t worry so much?
God: Quit worrying, I got this. Go clean out your purse or something.
