Glory!

I have to praise God and give him glory for things working in my life. I prayed and prayed for guidance on whether to go part-time at work. After receiving that guidance and taking a leap of faith, I started the process to move towards part-time status. It was easily approved (which is kindof a shock for where I work). But let me tell you, it is not coming cheaply for me. Although we are still overly blessed, the accountant in me thought...this will never work. So, I prayed that away also. I asked God over and over to just let this be a seamless transition. I will do my part in putting my faith in him while also being responsible and cutting corners that obviously would need to be cut for this to work. I knew he would be faithful to me. Well, last week I started part-time. I haven't got my first "reduced" paycheck yet, but I have been bracing for the trials...for my dishwasher to quit running, for my car to breakdown, for my A/C to not work...whatever to test my faith. Let me say, although my car has been making a weird noise lately when I press the brakes, quite the opposite has happened. Out of nowhere yesterday, I got 2 totally random checks in the mail. I had absolutely no clue that I was due money from one of them, and one of them I had totally forgotten about. Also, I got a coupon from the car dealer for a brake inspection, and a coupon for another store that I needed to buy something from. Coincedence? Doubt that...I don't believe in them anymore. I know that God is providing for me in ways that I cannot even imagine, and these are just 3 small tokens to remind me of that. So, praise God!! Isn't he awesome? My trials/tests of faith may begin tomorrow, and that is fine, too. I will still bring glory to God for what he has done and what he will continue to do.

That's awesome Heidi. Cutting back hours at work never looks good on paper but it does always seem to work itself out. God has a plan and how could it not include more time for you with your family?!? I'm so happy for you!
