June passed unknowingly.
My dear husband and I were on our toes for the past month. It is because business revenues are scarce during this time of the year; when parents pay for school expenses and matriculation in our place.
Being the budget officer of the house, I was worried more than what I showed to other family members.As days passed, there were many juggling and cost-effective measures I did just to make sure we would surpass this lean times of the year; aside from the fact that prices are skyrocketing more than the usual.
Today as first of July came, I was really in deep prayers that our finances will be better than the previous month. Then I read about Robin of Heart of Wisdom's entry about faith and how we should give God the Reins of our lives and I quote:
"When we wait patiently on God, we honor Him because we are allowing Him to have His way and His timing in our lives. It is the highest expression of faith in His righteousness.
In our weakness He is strong. God can and will do all. Abraham, Moses, and others in the Bible had strong faith; they were able to “see the invisible, choose the imperishable, and do the impossible,” and what was true for them centuries ago can be true for us today."
Now that I am on leave from my work, I am always at home. I can say I do have more hours in my hands to pray these days. Thus, whenever I do the laundry, the dishes, folding clothes or cleaning the floor - my silent prayers are muttered. Others might find this mundane or impractical, but I found this as my way to really be one with God, in very simple if not quiet way.
I know others will find it weird for me just to be home instead of earning a living outside ( just as I have been for twelve years); but I know that will happen again in the future, but not now.
As my husband left to meet with a client this afternoon, I prayed quietly, for God to provide for us in the most miraculous way; miraculous since he called this person just hours before the meeting.
He came home with a check!
I cannot thank HIM enough.
