“I Can Start Soon…”

Written by:  Ms. Amy
What are you praying for?  Are you talking to your Heavenly Father (DAD)?  As some of you may know I’m self-employed as a court reporter. We record and also type court proceedings and transcriptions of various things.  Our training is intense over a couple of months. 
My niece had been working for me for a few months and is exceptionally talented and has a good work ethic. She has 5 kids under 11. Last month she became licensed in another field and decided that in her family’s best interest she would no longer type for me; I was sort of crushed.  We had spent so much time training and hopeful she would continue working for us long-term, but I had to trust God was in control, and I couldn’t be in the way of where she felt the Lord leading in her life for the good of her family. 
Philippians 2:1-4 says “Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others, too.” 
So we started praying. “God, You are King, this company is Yours, formed with Your blessing and we honor You in all ways we can. I need help, preferably already trained.” Today I got an email from her basically saying,“With all this covid stuff keeping schools closed, including our district, I will have to homeschool my kids. I need to be at home so I’d like to continue working for you. I can start as soon as you have stuff for me.” 
Hers was the first message in the emails I read this morning. It brought me to tears. Literally, tears down the cheeks. No matter what state the world or our United States is in, God still hears us. He cares. He wants us to call on Him for help, for comfort and for wisdom in all decisions we have to make. He’s always been faithful and I’m so grateful for His love and attention.
I love you all.
