Back in April I shared the news that my hubby made the promotion list. Since April we have checked "the list" to see if his number was selected and each month we are let down. Today was one of those days. I saw that "the list" was put out so I flew out of bed and told the hubby. He went to the computer and saw that he did not make it but a friend of his did. I saw the frustration and discouragement come upon my hubby's face. My heart was breaking. I was positive that he was going to make it this month. I have been praying and pleading with God. Earlier in the month God had given me peace and I truly believed it was Him telling me that my hubby made it this month. Looking back I see that He had given me peace because he did not make it. I am a stronger believer in my God and His timing is perfect. I am not going to lie, I was bummed, I was on the edge of tears because the increase in pay is going to really help. I thought of my daughter's birthday approaching and Christmas. I was wondering how are we going to afford all of this when we have just enough to cover our bills. Then I became angry with myself and my hubby for making such poor financial decisions. The only person I can be mad at is myself. So I sat there sulking.
After a few minutes of sulking, I started my morning of checking my emails and when I checked my personal email, God showed me that He had heard me. I receive emails from KLove with the daily encouraging word. At first I was hesitant to open it but decided that I needed some encouragement. When I opened the email I was overcome with emotions.
"Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act." Psalm 37:7
I serve an awesome God! I love how He sends just the right words at just the right time. Yes, I am still dealing with the "what are we going to do" but again this scripture comes to mind. He loves us and sends us comfort in our time of need. My God is an awesome God!!!
