Yesterday, Melissa and I got an announcement that will quite literally change our lives (no Mom, no baby). Melissa got a new job that is going to cut her driving time by about 45 minutes. It may seem like just a small inconvenience, but It’s something we’ve been praying for and waiting for.
During the last couple of years while she’s been making the drive, I’ve asked God to provide something else. We’ve begged God as we’ve prayed together and have had numerous moments of hope with a job opening that soon closed without her getting a call back.
A month or so ago, Melissa had the great opportunity of helping some people who live around where she worked. She had just the right knowledge and gifts to help them. She served them and helped them as best she could. The next week, she found out about a job at the local college. Yesterday, she was offered the job.
I’m reminded once again that God’s ways are better.
that nothing surprises the Creator.
that God holds the world in His hand.
In my limited view of things, I couldn’t understand why God kept Melissa driving an hour to work….
God knew the reason.
Thank you God that you see the whole picture and not my corner.
Thank you God that you act beyond my dreams.
How has God blown your mind lately?
