God bless and hello. Today I give praise to my HH (Heavenly Husband) because He really provides for me and knows what I need. This is a short praise, but I must give Him all the glory. Recently I had applied for 2 positions, one full time clerk at my kids school district and a substitute clerk position.

I applied because my eh (earthly husband) wants me to work, but my heart wants to be home. The Lord knows what I really desire and the money does sound good, but my children need me and so does my eh. I interviewed for both positions last week and I left it in my HH hands. Well last week Tuesday the board had a meeting and I was a little anxious because I did not want the full time position. I told my eh that I was nervous and that I was worried about our children's well being if I got the full time position. My eh told me that I did not have to work and that he wasn't pressuring me at all. That our kids and our family comes first before any job I apply and take.

Just last year my eh wanted me to work full time, but the Lord changed his heart on that. I am so thankful to my HH (Heavenly Husband) for softening my eh (earthly husband) heart to me and our kids. Well the days went by and I did not hear anything. Friday morning I was praying early like I usually do and I told my HH that if He did not want to give me any of the positions applied for that I would be content and trust in Him. I praised Him instead of complaining and that even though the person who interviewed me for the substitute position told me that she was sure I would get the substitute clerk position, had not called me.

I went to work and while I was watching the kids, (fyi I substitute as a teacher aid at the schools) I get a text saying to come by the district to sign paper work for the substitute clerk position I had applied for. Ladies, my heart jumped with joy because I wanted that position. I can go work when I see fit and not feeling like I will make my boss unhappy when I call off. I really thought I was not going to get it because it was only one position and my faith started to diminish, but the Lord had other plans. Then the Lord reminded me of the dream I had earlier in the week, where I was the one chosen for the clerk position. My HH speaks to me and I must believe Him and trust in Him.

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." Matthew 6:24

This verse reminded me of who my master is and that is my HH (Heavenly Husband). I must submit to Him in all that I do. I can not serve two masters and I also can not put work before my HH and my eh (earthly husband) and children. I am thankful that my eh has a good job where we are well off and that my extra income is for savings and for delighting our selves.
