It's a scary feeling when you're running low on funds, if you're putting your faith in what you can see. God keeps reminding me to put my faith in what I cannot see. HIM. He has never failed me before. Am I putting my trust in Him or my bank account?
When you don't know what to do, do what you know to do. Put my trust in Him. In small group lately we've been talking about faith. How much do you have? Where does it come from? When do you get it? "If we are faithless, He remains faithful..." 2 Timothy 2:13 I think your faith increases when you practice it.
Still no news from the Navy....
.... According to the internet, it can take up to 3 months to hear back if a waiver has been approved or denied. I'm not sure what God has in store for us and our future. Maybe the Navy life, maybe not? What I do know is that no matter what happens, it will all work out okay, put my trust in Him. Have faith that he will do what he says he will do.
So, in the mean time, while we are waiting on the Lord, he has revealed a few things. One, to WAIT. I keep hearing that word. Wait. We could apply to lots of jobs, get something thats readily available. Places are hiring all over. But, he keeps saying "wait".
It's a scary feeling, since we haven't had a "9-5" job since June 2020. It's a miracle we are still making ends meet. And it's a blessing to have gone through this journey. Don't get me wrong, sometimes it's been hard. Sometimes I wanted to run from everything and everyone. Sometimes I wanted to take the easy way out and just do whatever I wanted.
But, that's usually when I've taken my eyes off of God and start sinking. Sometimes, instead of reaching up to Him to pull me back up, I'm so grateful that HE is the one that grabbed me by the arm and told me to look up at Him. He is a lifesaver. He is faithful.
Being told to wait is also exciting! It means that he has something specific in mind. The door opened up to do Tupperware again. I did it for 2 years and loved it! Made it to "Star Manager" and made a few lifelong friends along the way. I took a two year break and am now at it again. A part of me wishes I never would have stopped.
Another door that opened up is this blog site. I started one years back called Send Out Blessings, but the ducks just never lined up for it to go anywhere. Now they have and it is called Give Out Blessings. He gave me a focus point. A specific calling. It's crazy. Looking back on my bucket-list throughout the years, its all coming true.
Whenever I was selling Tupperware years ago, they were giving away a vacation to Hemingway, SC to tour the Tupperware Factory. I prayed I could earn that trip and worked for it. I didn't. God did one better and now I am actually living in the town that I prayed I could just visit! lol That's God for you. His ways are higher than our ways. His plans are far greater than our plans. God is good. He is faithful. With his grace and forgiveness he is drawing me to become more like Him. To be a blessing like he has blessed me. Until next time, be blessed. - Amber Bruce
