I had mentioned in a previous blog that my consulting work for a day before Christmas fell through on their end. And is being rescheduled for “after Christmas sometime when schedules are less hectic.” I had been counting on that money for Christmas presents and without it would be scraping by. So I prayed. I want to give gifts to my family on Christmas. It makes me happy to help them celebrate the greatest gift of all, the birth into human form of our God in the Savior Jesus Christ. It is nice to be able to present gifts during this collective celebration.
I wanted to update you on God’s answer to my prayer. God gave me one consult at a different office and then gave me a gig I just did the other night. Then He surprised me greatly by my husband saying yesterday, we are ahead on the bills because of my prudence and God’s provision and he would be able to contribute to gifts this year. And my son also, on top of it all, told me quite maturely that he was 14 now and was perfectly happy to wait for any gift until after my “after Christmas” consults, the real celebration being the Christmas birthday party (we do every year with cake for Jesus) and family time.
So wow! God generally does not answer prayer as we expect, but infinitely better. Oh how I love Him!! Praise God!! 😄❤
