Since my husband's passing, I have been under much stress and worry about how to handle the finances. Pay this off, make this claim, wait for weeks for a claim, invest... I prayed for God to protect and guide me through this process, understanding that not every situation would be resolved to my liking or in " my time". Many issues have been resolved quickly and expediently, but there are some that are taking time, and or causing me stress. Yesterday 3 letters came in the mail, one good, one aggravating, and one very stressful. I put all three down, made a delicious Italian chicken soup while enjoying a wonderful Cabernet, and asked God to grant me peace and calm, to protect me, to guide me in regards to these letters. I proceeded to enjoy a wonderful meal with my daughter, watch a movie and get a good night's sleep. This morning I arose rested and full of conviction that somehow I would "attack" these issues and seek resolution!
Results: 1) good letter, called to confirm info on it, remains a good news. 2) aggravating letter, they will be back in the office on Monday, so call back then. Ok, decided to release any worry about this and attack on Monday. 3) very stressful letter, all resolved and to my benefit, yahoo!
It is my belief that the Lord is always listening to me, and if I allow Him to, He will help me in my time of need. Furthermore, I feel that my desire to love and know Him, is crucial for my well being.
Peace to all,
