Oh, ye of little faith

God showed me something amazing this morning, even though I didn't ask him to or even deserve it. But that is what makes it so beautiful.  Recently I have not been working as much as I would like. I try to pick up to make enough money to pay the bills, but there just hasn't been the opportunity. Yesterday when looking at my schedule for this week I was shocked to realize I was working not even half as much as I need to be. I immediately began to worry and think "oh God, PLEASE don't make me go back to the hospital. Working nights again will be the death of me!" (Worry much?!)

So last night I tossed and turned and had nightmare of being back at the hospital, working nights, and being even more exhausted this time because this time I have a toddler to raise. I woke up and started the day already exhausted and feeling defeated. On my way to drop Inara off at my Dad's (who is awesome for loving Inara so much), I got a call from my work. They had a unique opportunity for me to work longer today! I would make enough working extra to cover the difference of my working less!

As soon as I hing up the phone I burst into tears as I told Inara about our faithful God. Its like He was telling me "Hey, I got this". And He did, does, and will! Yes it was great that our bills would now be taken care of, but its so Mich more than that. It was a little reminder that He has taken care of my biggest problem of sin on the cross. He bore the wrath of God for me, and if I can trust Him for a glorious salvation, I can trust him for the day to day, and even when he chooses to withhold His blessing.

Roman 8:31-39 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Oh how silly to worry and fret when my Jesus has secured my way to Him. And that is something that cannot be taken from me even if our finances security is taken from us! Thank you Jesus for the ultimate gift, sweet fellowship with you!
