Yesterday was my first day back to work. That morning, as I was having uneasy feelings about leaving Maddie at daycare, not seeing her or my husband much, I opened up my email and found the verse of the day from Bible Gateway. It made me feel so much better about this decision and that it is God’s will!!
16 Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God’s will in Christ Jesus that you do this.
I have always loved this verse and I know that it is talking about how always being joyful, always praying in whatever happens is God’s will but… I took it as in this new journey of me going back to work, I am to be joyful for this opportunity, to never stop praying and always seeking Him when I feel weak, when I feel like I can’t do this. Thanking Him that when I wasn’t looking for a job, a job came to me and it was one that I already knew! This is God’s will for me!
It gave me such peace and it really came at the perfect time. He is amazing like that isn’t He? Always knowing when we need that extra ‘hug’ from Him, showing us that He is there and that He will always be there in no matter what we do!!!
and as an added update, Maddie did really well her first day eating lunch at school, at daycare and with her daddy yesterday! So proud of her!! No tears at all!!!
Here she is eating her first ever lunch at school.
