When I last wrote, I had been going through a somewhat difficult time, and people around me were going through much weightier trials than I could even imagine. I was depressed, angry, frustrated, sad and disappointed at God, myself, and almost everyone else around me. I could barely see the hope that the near future held for me. But all this time, I’m glad to say God has been faithful and always by my side, even when I wanted to give up.
And these words from God kept echoing in my mind, as a theme in my life: I am going to take care of you.
When I felt unappreciated and unloved by some people, God said: I am going to take care of you.
And He did! A few days later, I got several notes of appreciation either written or by messaging from different people, not because I was someone great, but because He is great!
When I needed means to pay some of my expenses, but work had had to cut my hours. God said: I am going to take care of you.And He did! Work has added some hours to next week, and they even had me come in to work today when I should have gotten my hours cut today.
When I felt I had to rush through bad traffic, God said: I am going to take care of you.
And He did! He calmed me down, and I got home at a reasonable time.
When I felt lonely and wanted to spend time with friends, God said: I am going to take care of you.
And He did! He provided me an opportunity for my friends and I to enjoy a concert together, and also just enough funds to attend.
So, no matter what you are going through, whether it be financial issues, job issues, family or friend issues, relational issues, health issues, or other issues, remember: God is going to take care of you.
