Unexpected Blessings

Tuesday I was sad because I didn’t get a job I was certain I would get. Maybe it was because of the results of those test scores I told you about.
Usually I say something daily to my 554 Facebook “friends,” but Tuesday I was quiet the entire day. No motivation, jokes, inspiration, videos or anything.
Wednesday my pastor posted on Facebook: “If I have learned anything as a Leader/Pastor I have learned this. You must be able to TAKE A HIT AND KEEP IT MOVING. You cannot STOP OR QUIT! The assignment is BIGGER than your injury. Can the church say YES!!!!”

Wow. Was that speaking to my situation or what? So I re-posted what he said and I wrote this:
My Pastor is a man of God and a great influence. So grateful that he is my spiritual shepherd. No matter what we’re going through, he tells us to praise our way through it and keep it moving because better is coming. The challenges we go through can really get to you and try to break you down, but you eventually bounce back. I’m crying as I type this because nothing has been going the way I expected, but I still trust God for what’s coming. God is still able and He will show up in HIS time. He’s been adding another chapter to my testimony. Guess I better start writing…

Anyway, late this evening I remembered to get the mail. Among the bills was an Escrow Surplus Refund Check for $935. Thank You Jesus! I did not see that coming at all! Hallelujah!  Didn’t think I was paying more than I should, but apparently they estimated something wrong and it worked in my favor. Glory! The more you give, the more you receive. That works in more ways than one.  Lord knows I needed this because things are super tight right now.  I praise God for anything and everything. This is a new mortgage company that recently took over my loan. They could have kept that money and I wouldn’t have been the wiser.  So, there. A praise report while I wait for something else to happen in Supernatural September.

I tweeted this 9 hours ago: God is the Writer, Producer & Director of our story. We must act according to His Word & Will. Follow the script. He will reward you.



The Waiting Game

I survived an interview Wednesday at the employment agency, traveling downtown to go into one of their offices, alone, to have a phone interview for a customer service specialist position in a call center.  It seems like this could have been done at home, but they probably wanted to screen the way we were dressed. The waiting room was full and I was the only one who wore a business suit, my hair fresh and curly from the salon the night before. Everyone else was younger and very casual, like they were dressed for school. They’ll learn one day that presentation is part of the package. I’ll find out Friday or Tuesday if I get a face-to-face interview for this long-term assignment, six months to a year. Meanwhile, still waiting to come up with that million dollar idea. I’m sure it has crossed my mind many times. God, do me a favor and scream the idea in my dreams or something next time, so I don’t miss it. Please don’t let me forget it before I wake up. Thanks!

An older man called me a couple of days ago, a blast from the past, the part I don’t think about anymore because I’ve been delivered from the stuff I was doing back then.  Every now and then something rises up to remind you of how you used to be. He wanted to talk about something that happened almost 25 years ago, saying it had been on his mind. What? It was very bizarre because he wanted to explain a time he “couldn’t perform.” Huh? Unbelievable! Okay, glad you got that off your chest. Talk to you later. Bye!

I’ve gotten a few notifications that maybe five people are reading this blog. That’s a start and it encourages me to not disappear for a month because five may turn into fifteen, and fifteen into fifty, and so on.  I will go back to the emails and get your names so I can read your blogs too.  Maybe I should have checked some blogs out in the beginning to see what people talk about, but I was determined not to be a copycat, so I dove in not knowing what I was doing. Not even sure if I have this blog set up properly. I got a lot of spam while I was on blog strike.

I’ve been on Facebook 4 years, Pinterest a year and a half, Twitter almost 9 months, and Instagram, 5 weeks. I started this blog two months ago, but got discouraged and disappeared for a month because I was talking to myself.  Audience or not, God gets praise and glory on all of my social media. He is the reason I’m still here.  He loves me and I love Him for loving me when I didn’t love myself and when I wasn’t very lovable. I still have issues, but just different ones.

This past Monday night when I invited you to watch 4am Prayer Tuesday morning, I hope somebody did because it was off the charts! Going to get a CD Thursday at Bible Study so I can hear it again.  Wish there was a way to share it with you. You’d definitely be touched by it. There’s nothing like God’s Word, God’s Spirit, praise and worship. Wish everyone believed and trusted in Him. This world would be a better place. May the dear Lord bless you.
