DOES GOD CARE IF YOU HAVE A JOB?

Hello once again Friends and Family,

Philippians 4:19

 But my God

shall supply

all your need

according to His

riches in glory

by Christ Jesus.

The grandmother was a Christian and loved Jesus with all her heart.  She lived alone and had a job in a mobile home park as the manager and lived on site.  A nicely sized trailer with rent and utilities were provided as  part of her pay.

Everything was really going great for her and she loved her job.  She was hired to do certain duties in the park and gradually her duties increased until she was doing the job of two people.  Her salary remained the same.  Her salary was very small, but she was thankful for her job.

She loved the people in her park and was a true friend to them.  She even had a bible study in her trailer for the Spanish speaking people who lived there.  She prayed for and brought some of the other tenants to the  church she attended.

One elderly man passed away who lived in her park and his family so appreciated her love and concern for their father, they gave her his trailer, and his well maintained vehicle.

Inside she found $3,000 dollars and was using it to remodel her new home.  She had it painted and had  plans for new flooring and cabinets to be installed.

Her employer tried to yet add more duties to her already over-worked and under-paid schedule.  She prayed about it  and finally got the courage to nicely ask for a raise in an email.  The terse answer she got was that she was fired from her job and told she had a few days to vacate the manager’s trailer she had been provided!  That meant a quick job to finish the remodeling.  Amazing!

She understandably was upset.  She had given her all to her job and this was the thanks she got!

Every Christian knows (or should know) that “…all things work together for good to them that love God,…” This was the stand this dear lady took.  She clearly did not understand the whys of what had happened, but  trusted that the God that she served would make a way for her.  Her grown children were worried about her, but she confidently told them, “The Lord will take care of me.”

Matthew 6:31-33

Therefore take no thought,

saying,

What shall we eat?

or,

What shall we drink?

or,

Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:)

for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness;

and all these things shall be added unto you.

Within two weeks the Lord gave her another job.  She began working at a school.  Oh, she loves her new job!  Did God care if she had a job?  The answer is evident.  The Lord will always take care of His children; always!

Thank you Friends and Family for stopping by.
