“And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” ~Philippians 4:19
Those of you who have been reading this blog know that I’ve been looking for work. It’s been difficult for 2 reasons: 1) my field doesn’t exist in NY; and 2) my roommate needs my assistance on Mondays and Tuesdays, making a typical 9-5, Mon-Fri work week impossible.
So it’s been a struggle, but God knows exactly what I need. He knows, and He provides. Just when I was getting truly desperate, He provides me with temporary employment. He did the same thing last year, but this time it’s twice as much as it was then!
It just goes to show the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’. God provides for our needs (and sometimes blesses us with our wants too!). It’s as simple in that. In Him we need nothing else. And His timing might be a little tight in our point of view, but it’s always perfect. We are so insignificant, but still we always have His full attention. Praise Jesus! I’m thankful and blessed that He’s come through once again to take care of me!
the brighter side is always there for those who have loving eyes
That is so cool. he had done the same for me this week. I have been getting close to the desperate thing myslef with the job situation, to the point I was getting ready to take a job that would cause me to travel 9 months out of the year. I have small children and did not want to have to go away again, but we were getting down to the wire here before the other income was going to stop. Thursday morning I had an interview and my wife and I were filling out applications up to the time I had to leave for this interview. I did not have much faith in this job as I knew it wasn’t going to pay well. But I went, was offered the job right there on the spot, at the pay I was making before, and it is a really cool job. I was so exstatic I could hardly believe it. Such a blessing. The company called me back yesterday and said that they would like to start me off at a better position than the one they offered the day before, and it pays 1.5 times what they were going to pay me. Another huge blessing on top of that. Amazing. Praise God in all of his glory.
