I figured since I whine about not having “enough” money, I’d post a shout out when something goes well. And if you have ever had to trust God for that “daily bread” you understand the God math phenomenon.
So lately one of my worrying points has been our finances. Doug works very hard to provide for our family and we are attempting to manage that well. Still things happen that turned us upside down on our budget. Through the prayer process, I believe I’ve sensed the Holy Spirit saying, “it’ll be ok, I’ve got it under control, don’t obsess”. Well, yeah, easy for God to say. Harder for Mrs. I-should-do-it-myself to believe. I decided to take a flying leap so to speak and not obsess.
I was relieved to have received a surprise check in the mail that would cover a few more expenses this month. I felt horribly guilty as I made a mistake this week and overspent. It was a miscommunication thing. And I heard in my spirit, “its ok, I’ve got it under control, don’t obsess”. So tonight I decided I’d better look through the checkbook and line it up with the bank so I knew what I was dealing with having “squandered” my mailbox treat. In walks…God math.
I discovered a deposit I did not record in my checkbook and an expense that I posted twice. Therefore, I am back to “should be able to cover a few more expenses” mode. Better write those checks before I load up a Starbucks card. 😉
So thank you God for your foray into the world of equations and showing you indeed have power over logic. Its always a fun ride albeit heart pounding to balance my checkbook with you. See you at the mailbox!
