Ever Since I had Ashley, my first born, I longed to be able to stay home with her full time. By the time I had Shelby, my second child, it would just tear me apart when I would have to go to job and work all day. My story continues.
I had just had a series of major life changing events happen in my life, and was still healing and adjusting in many way. Then, I began praying about my job situation, the feeling of wanting to quit became increasingly intensified. I prayed for divine intervention. I was in such a dilemma, because I had to work, we needed a second income to make ends meet. On top of the emotional turmoil, I had a staff infection on my face! Finally, one night, I cried out to the Lord. I knew that He would only give me as much as I could handle. In my anguish, I told Him this was all I can handle. I was very poor in spirit and my body was shaking.
God heard me.
The next day, again I sadly got ready to go to work. I worked swing shift, so Josh, my husband, could come home after his job to take care of Ashley and Shelby, because I didn't want to leave them with a babysitter. Unknown to me, that day on his way home, Josh stopped by to talk to my boss and quit my job for me. My boss was a Christian, and totally understood my situation. When Josh got home, he told me, "You don't have to go in to work any more, I just quit your job for you." I just about fainted!
Josh took a big step of faith. Ten days later, he received a big raise, which exactly made up for the money I was making at my job!
"Look at the birds of the air;
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father fees them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?"
"The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their cry.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
He delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the broken hearted,
and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
Psalm 34:15, 17, 18
