Faith

"Faith is not only knowing that God can, but trusting that he will."

I hate talking about things on here before they happen. But I'm going
to today because I need to get it off my chest. I may have a possible
job, a good one, that pays and everything:) That totally reminds me of
something Gavin said the other day... "Mom I know it's important to
help people, but could you at least charge some of them " Funny to get
business advice from your 10 year old. Any way about the possible job
please pray that I get it, because if I don't, I'm kinda s.o.l..I'm
trying to stay in faith, which thank God I'm pretty good at. But still
it's scary. I was thinking back today about the times in my life that
I could have given a shit less about paying my bills. Today I not only
care that they get paid, I care that they get paid on time. WOW, I
think I'm turning into a grown-up! A job God...please!

  1. I will pray that you get the job you are looking for, keep the faith. Your son sounds like a very smart young man. Although helping others is a necessity in life, sometimes it's ok to be selfish for the good of our families. God Bless.

  2. Prayers for your new job!! You are in the right place now and I have a feeling God will give you what you need, LIKE A JOB!!

    I know about the feelings of wanting to be responsible. i have been clearing out rooms in my house, emptying files, shredding files and trying to just get and stay organized. it feels good. I think I tried to hide my drinking within all the paper work and let the clutter of it all frustrate me. God does give you what you need. I have been thinking that a lot lately. My mothers cancer is progressing, but I have been slower at work so I can go home and help her more. I want to get a degree, but I was worried about money, funny thing is now, sober, I am making less money then when I was drunk!!! The thing is, I feel o.k. with it, (not all the time though), but I can go to the meetings I need to go to, help my mother when I can, be supportive of my husband, and start to figure out what I really need to keep myself healthy!!!

  4. Thank you for the "faith" quote - I really needed to see that today.

    I'm coming up on a year sober next Monday and in the past three days had two of the worst things that have happened in the past year occur - one seriously financial and one involving my son's suspension from school (I know, after only two days - and totally out of character but VERY serious).

    I have to believe that God didn't bring me this far to drop me - and that it's not going to keep me from celebrating next week!

    Believing for GREAT things to be headed your way on the job front...
