What a difference a few days can make. Let me tell you, the enemy has been working overtime on me these last few days and I have found myself walking in a bit of a dark spot. Monday found me back into my routine. Heading back to the office, fresh new daytimer in my brief case. Words of encouragement written in the margins. Ready to hit the ground running in 09.
My husband and I are both full-time real estate agents. Needless to say 2008 ended up being quite a challenge in our industry. Fortunately, Indiana doesn't have the extreme highs and lows as seen in other states, however business was down. Clinging to the truth that God will provide for us, and lead us as long as we seek Him and His will for us got us through. (fortunately we are savers as well and know that we have to put our nuts away for the winters). Business still remains a bit down... which has brought me down. What a difference from Monday.
5 years ago God led me to this place. We prayed for over a year about me leaving my job and joining Jim in a real estate career. When the time was right, God told us, and we responded. I have to remember that when I get down. I have to tell you anxiety, fear and the downright urge to quit has flooded over me the past two days. Even Jim said "Don't let Satan do this to you". So, I get home today and our health insurance premium was in the mail. Being self-insured is quite costly and the dedcutable is extremley high. Arrggghhh... just another thing to add to the stress. But then I happened to click on Angie's blog and the words I prayed this morning were the theme of her January 8th post. No coincidence here... God knew what I needed after I opened that bill.
Satan knows what gets my anxiety going. And there is no way I am going to let him win! God has always done what He said He would do... so why do I fear.? Oh Lord forgive my unbelief!
Your prayers would be much appreciated right now. I know the healing that powerful prayer brings to an aching heart!
God is who He says He is.
God can do what He says He can do...
I am who God says I am. **
I can do all things through Christ. **
God's Word is alive and active in me.
I'M BELIEVING GOD!!!!
