Until a few days ago, when another blogger shared this on her site, I had not heard this song before. But the words are just so good… Too good for me not to share!
We truly do serve a God who can take the broken pieces of our lives and make them whole.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
-2 Corinthians 12:9-11
Something that happened in a staff meeting on Monday has made me incredibly worried this week. When I originally took this job, after losing my job working from home, I was under the impression that there was potential for this to turn into a work from home position after Bonnie was born. But my boss informed me on Monday that, on no uncertain terms, I need to decide if I want to come to work after I have the baby or not, because if not he needs to find someone else. I told him, as I did when he hired me, that I was only willing to continue working for him if I could do so from home, as I just do not want to put Bonnie in childcare. He said that he will be looking for someone to replace me… someone who is willing to be in the office from 9 am to 4 pm every day.
This caught me off guard completely, because that was not his response when I told him the same exact thing only months ago.
I’ve been worrying, praying, talking to Andrew, worrying more, praying more, talking to my mom, applying for work from home jobs (half of which probably are not even legitimate jobs), and then worrying a little more.
But out of the blue, it looks like God is opening a new door for me. All the details are not ironed out, and nothing is set in stone yet. Since everything is still so vague, I won’t say more, but this is just another example of the way God is constantly reminding me that HE has everything under control… That HE is all I need.
