Following God?

I haven’t posted in a while and I won’t say why. I’m just going through a lot and I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and it seemed that I came to some conclusions, but the end of the story has not yet been told.

Everything that I am going through now is because I left my job last December. I was looking in my journal on the day I left that job and I wrote that I was so happy. But I’m not so happy now. I remember so well talking to three different people about leaving before I did it. The Bible says: in the multitude of counselling there is safety. At the time, I was adjusting to taking a lot of medicine and it was affecting my body. Then the job crammed 40 hours into 4 days, with 2, 13  hour days and it was hard. And finally, my transportation was unreliable. It seemed like a smart move at the time. Stepping out and trusting God to find something else.

Almost a year later, there isn’t anything else other than a formula that God gave me. Now, if I had posted this earlier, this would have ended differently. But by the evening the Lord reminded me of  all He started doing early spring and I know had I continued on the job, I probably would have missed it. I think I followed God and all three of the people I counselled with still believe it was the right thing to do.

I’ve suffered a lot because of that decision, but I’ve gained a lot also, but I still have not gotten the full gain of the other business formula God gave me. Hopefully that benefit will come through soon.

John 2:4-5

New International Version (NIV)

“Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
