Since I quit my job earlier this year and started working freelance from home, it’s been a big transition. But let’s face it: the biggest transition I’m still dealing with is losing my mom. Suffice it to say that it’s been a tough two years.
The good news is that with God, I have a good life. I’ve been blessed with some really cool writing and marketing opportunities, and Brett’s company is busy with work too. When you have to work hard for every dollar–no steady paycheck or raises–it brings us back to where we should be: dependent on God.
Lately, I’ve been working hard to get into the Word more; I know I need it. But more than just reading, I am working to ponder a verse or two and really get it in me.
I’ve had some difficulties with sickness this summer, so this is a verse that I am constantly reminding myself of: “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up.” James 5:15
The other verse I’ve been focusing on today is: “Grace and peace be yours in abundance.” 1 Peter 1:2b
