What a Difference A Year Makes!

This is a post from my Facebook account. I know it's not my typical "form" But I had to share what God is doing in our lives right now. God Bless!

I have testimony to share. You don't think God has a plan? You don't think He's working? Read on:

Most of you know Keith (my husband) lost his job last year. He asked our Bible class to pray for him (He's never done that) and in three days (God confirms in 3's) he got a new job. BUT the pay was A LOT lower. I got not one, but two babies to watch last year, which equaled the EXACT amount Keith lost. Keith's tips were really bad at Papa J's. So, I decided to raise my sitter rates. I labored over that decision for a long time but once I sent the emails off, I felt peace. Immediately, both of my baby's parents went to look at daycares. I thought, "Why did I feel peace?" I thought I had made the wrong decision. I eventually lost both babies to the same day care. When the last baby left, I told Keith, "God has to have a plan, because this makes no sense, so much, there just has to be one."
It took a whole year for us to see God's complete plan...Had Keith not lost his job and made less money, had I not got the babies to get me up and moving, had I not gotten sick, which changed my horrible diet, and helped my digestive tract, I wouldn't have had the financial help, the energy, or the stamina to be......accepted for Cosmetology School!!! Most of you guys know I have been doing hair for years but could never afford the school. God is ALWAYS working. Even in the "poo" He's working! 


Proverbs 3:5,6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
