A few months ago, I got messaged me and a job offer at a small computer company. I gladly accepted because it meant that I would not have to depend on others for my food and lodging as I had been unemployed for more than 4 years.

I soon realized that there, in fact, was not enough work for me and that he did it as a favor to me. There were times that I really did not enjoy the work and even came home crying the one day, but even so, I persevered and worked the month and then left for a 10 day holiday to attend my daughter’s wedding.
The night before I was supposed to return to work I felt a deep sense of not wanting to go back and I was on my bed praying to God that what I really wanted was to be a worker at home. I thoroughly enjoy doing the translations for the Ministry and I would rather be doing that than wasting time in an office doing arbitrary work, even though I was getting paid for it.
Well God answered my prayers and the next morning my I got a messaged to say that he couldn’t afford to keep me on due to the business not doing so well. I was elated because it now freed me up to do more work for the Ministry. I didn’t care about not having money to do my nails or my hair or any of those earthly things although it does mean that I have to rely on others once more for my food and shelter…which God provides anyway.
I am just grateful that with the money I did receive I was able to pay my way during the holiday and of course I was also able to tithe. I know that God has placed a calling on my life and that is to work for the Ministry that I am so thankful for. I’m thankful that He has given me a way out of the world and a way back into His world. Thank You my Heavenly Husband for answering my heartfelt prayers to You and granting me the desire of my heart.

Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
