It's a God Thing

     I believe that if you use what God gives you wisely, He will give you more..... and vice versa, as well.  When I worked in Missouri, I knew that you had to work 5 years to be vested.  Vested meant being able to receive long term benefits, like health insurance and disability.  Now it was never my goal to just work 5 years but that ended up being God's plan for me and my body's limit.
     'It's a God thing' that those benefits allow me to have my own money.  It allows me to support my church, different missionaries, and my shopping indulgences.  God knew that others would benefit, if He gave me the blessing to share.  As my body won't allow me to go on mission trips, that doesn't mean I don't have a part to play.  Financial support can spur many projects into a reality that may have seemed impossible.  I'm not saying I am able to give alot, but if we all gave what we could to support those who we believe in then the blessings would just multiply.
     Recently, I received a pamphlet in the mail about a new program to reimburse you for your health insurance.  Yes, I think it's crazy but it gives me more to 'pay it forward' with to others.  It's probably an Obama thing, I don't know, but God uses all things for His glory....and that's that.


  1. That's awesome. I think you use all your resources wisely and for God. Feel sure you will hear well done, good and faithful servant some day.

  2. God surely did bless and guide in this matter. Mom

  3. "Give, and it will be given you, good measure, pressed down and shaken together." Galatians

    Thanks, Angie, for your example of a life of giving. May we all follow suit.

  4. To whom much is given, much is required. God doesn't bless us for us to sit on our haunches and get fat. He blesses so we can bless others....and you do! :)

  5. God knows everything about us...and our limitations....and He will provide and care for us, as He did you in your short-term job situation. He knew even when you did not, as is always the case. I like Gloria's true. And you are a great example in so many ways....what a "delight in the Lord" girl you are! Love you, T.
