31 Days of Joy: Day 3 – Joy in God Moments
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.”
It was an answer to my morning prayer.
There is joy in knowing God’s got my back – always.
Thank you God!
