This morning began with me reading Psalm 30. It is all about asking God for help and Him
finally coming to your aide with His perfect timing and plans. I read it over and over and it soothed me. I had a peace that I had not felt in a long time regarding my job situation.
My prayers have been simple lately, at least when praying for my own personal things. “I trust you,” and then I sit with my eyes closed and hope that God can hear all of the craziness going on in my head without me having to form it into words. I’m sure He can, I mean, He did make my head after all.
Today was one of the very best days I have had in a very long time.
It wasn’t because I got a job.
It wasn’t because I had a really good talk with my wise Grandma.
It wasn’t because I used my other $10 free money card from Kohl’s to get a sweet silicone spatula.
It wasn’t because the lady at the cupcake store gave me a free cupcake.
It wasn’t because we celebrated my job with burgers and fries, yum.
It wasn’t because a dear, sweet friend sent me a wonderful and thoughtful gift in the mail.
All of those things are amazing and fun, but it’s not why today felt so… profound.
It was because God proved His faithfulness and His love to me in a very real way. I felt it, tangibly. And even though I am supposed to have the faith of a mustard seed, sometimes that is just a little too hard to do when things are going awry. Today it felt like God has His big ol’ arms wrapped around me, guiding me through the confusion.
And I know it won’t feel that real everyday, and I know there will be countless other bad days, but today was exactly what I needed.
