  • Mood: Awestruck
On a recent journal piece (…, I changed my "mood icon" from distressed to relieved and stated the following: "We just have to trust God and His plan for our lives. It is our reaction to these things that happen to us that is more important than the event itself."  I made a conscious decision to do everything I could, but to not stress over things that God, not me, is in control of.  As you heard in my last post, my insurance has been reinstated.  That was a HUGE blessing.  On top of that though, one of my internet friends suspected that all these medical expenses were not in my budget and sent me a gift of some money.  It was hundreds of dollars - and the EXACT amount that our unplanned medical expenses  from the last three weeks totaled up to.  Some may chalk that up to coincidence.  I know God's hand when I see it though.  If anything deserves an "awestruck" mood icon, this is it....

Nothing happens on accident brother! There are no coincidences in this life, but the miraculous work of our greater power, however/whoever you might see/name/believe in...

Congratulations. :excited: Our God is an awesome God. I always tell people when we stop praying for our will to be done and start praying for God's will to be done in our lives we will see things change.:pray: Maybe not over night but definitely God knows what's in our best interest and he always takes care of his own. Again Congratulations.:hug:'s

God Bless

I've been lurking around for the past few weeks (which you've probably noticed) because of how busy I've been, but I wanted to pause and comment. Gof is awesome isn't He?! He never fails to pull through for us when we finally decide to just leave things to Him. I'm glad your (and our) prayers have been answered. This seriously has made my day! (I'm graduateing from the Master's Commission program tonight btw)

Congrats on the graduation! I've been missing you. Ok, I'll be honest. I've been missing your scripts and tutorials as well. LOL
