31 Days of Joy: Day 3 – Joy in God Moments

(Good morning and welcome to day 3 of 31 Days of Joy. I have joined the Nester’s 31 Days of 5 Minute Freewrites challenge. You can read my other posts here.)

Joy In God Moments

Two years ago this month, I became a freelance writer/virtual assistant.

To supplement my income, I took a seasonal position selling lawn mower parts in a high volume call center. The season will come to and end most likely later this month. Then I will be back to relying on my freelance writing to pay the bills.

I was thinking about this fact on my drive out of town Wednesday to visit my brother visiting from Arizona. I decided to pray about finding work – again. I told myself to stop panicking about it because God knows my needs. God having my back is one thing that was reinforced this summer as I read through the Psalms. There was no one Psalm that stood out, but numerous verses proclaiming God has my back.

I arrived at Mom’s and had a wonderful visit and lunch with her and my brother.  Then I headed home.

On the drive home, a white sedan exited the freeway and as he did I noticed his license plate – John 6:35. Not having memorized that verse I made a mental note to look it up after getting home.

Here is what I found: John 6:35

35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

John 6:35

It was an answer to my morning prayer.

There is joy in knowing God’s got my back – always.

Thank you God!



  • Hi, Michele! I am your “Linky Neighbor” on the Write31 site and thought I would just come over and say hello. I LOVE today’s post-it is so neat that you saw that license plate and that was the verse. It’s a good thing you were paying attention, or you would have missed God speaking to you! I’ll keep you in my prayers!

    • Hello my “Linky Neighbor”, it is nice to meet you. Thank you for saying hello. I read your blog post and also LOVE it. I try to be graceful but God made me more of a klutz! I look forward to following your posts during this challenge. Thanks for the prayers. God bless you and your lovely family.
