Well, I am really excited because I just found out that I got a graduate assistantship position for next year that I applied for at the beginning of summer. This is such a huge relief, and it will make things a lot less stressful financially with us searching for a second car soon. It all seems to make sense now, as we didn't have to go through the stress of moving, it will not be as difficult to make car payments each month when we do purchase another car, and we can continue to live in a safe area. I will probably need to work really hard to manage my time between school and work this year, but I am confident that this is truly a gift from God.
I know it shouldn't, but sometimes it just really surprises me to see things work out so well when we submit ourselves to God's will. This has been such a good reminder to me and Thomas that we need to continue to fully trust in God, to seek out and follow his will for our lives, and to not spend time worrying about the future. God is just so good and so faithful, and I am continually amazed by his goodness. So many prayers of thanksgiving right now. God always has a plan for us, and it is always so much better than what we dream about.
"Learn to savor how good the Lord is
happy are those who take refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you holy ones;
nothing is lacking to those who fear him.
The powerful grow poor and hungry
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing."
- Psalm 34: 9-11
How has God provided for you in big or small ways when you didn't understand what his plans were?
