Today I want to share with you all about something that had been worrying me that God took care of-as usual! I’ve always had a job since I was 14 years old. (The only exception being the time I had nose surgery an wasn’t allowed to work for a month)
From age 14-17 I worked in a pizza shop
From 15-16 I taught swim lessons and was a life guard. (Yeah I had 2 jobs at once for a while-it was a busy time!)
17-18 I did real estate work from home
18-19 (until yesterday….) I worked for Penn State at the fitness center
Yesterday was my last day working for Penn State.
I loved my job (and had the opportunity to become the manager) but I resigned because I wanted to enjoy my last few weeks of summer plus I have to move in early for the school I am transferring to. Here comes the worrying thoughts….
“How am I going to make money? I am going to be SUCH a burden to my parents! I am so lazy, why would I quit my job so soon, I need this money for _______.”
Of course those thoughts are irrational as I am typing them out but they popped through my head before and after I decided to stop working. What do I do when I worry (or have any emotion in general!)? I pray out all of my honest thought/feelings. So I did.
God answered my prayers!
Literally the day after I was praying my Dad approached me and asked me to do some work for him. (Him and my mom own a business) I jumped at the offer and I have already done a few hours of work.
The next day a woman at my church approached me and asked me to take over her duty of cleaning the church while she is on vacation. I jumped at the offer!
Of course I save my money wisely, etc. but I have always had a huge worry that I am going to be a burden to my parents in the money area if I don’t work. I know they are always willing to help me out but to tell you the truth I feel awful taking any money from them. I’m so glad I prayed everything out to God and he answered my prayers.. rapidly!
I just had to share this with you all today because it was on my heart :]
Do you feel bad accepting money from your parents?
Tell me about some answered prayers!!
