Not the best words to hear after arriving at a doctor appointment. A call to the insurance company confirmed that I had been terminated. I graciously thanked the appointment nurse and peacefully walked out to make another call. I had full assurance and faith, that after this call, that all would be well. The call was to a long time friend, book keeper, administrator, office manager, etc, etc., who is a master at efficiency who oversees this issue. I really, wasn't shaken, because I had such faith in her. Just one call to her and all was made well.
Overcoming some major issues in life have prompted some well meaning friends to advise me with their wisdom, and it has necessitated settling some foundational concepts about God. The main one is that "God loves me, and has a wonderful plan for my life." Nothing or no one can shake that one, though many have tried. Differentiating between an attack that is to kill, or a test to reveal, has depended on knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that God loves me and has a wonderful plan for my life. Absolute faith in a loving God, and an administrator that also loves me, eliminates and eliminated 100% of worry, anxiety, anger, frustration, etc. etc.
Lord, remind us all, that you love us, and your plan is wonderful for all of us. We resist attacks designed to kill, and welcome tests that reveal your love. Thank you for placing loving, skilled people into places of authority in our lives.
