Over the past few months I have been learning to Rejoice Always.
As someone who deals with Anxiety on an almost daily basis, Philippians 4 has some very valuable verses. Paul reminds me to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give my anxieties over to God in exchange for His peace.
“Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again: REJOICE! Let your gentleness be evident to all…be anxious about nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” – Phil 4:4-7
These words are so true. And in the end, God answers. Somehow, we find Him working. Lately it has been in this:
I finally got a job interview for a great job on Monday! I am now waiting to hear about whether or not it is going to be my job.
I got my first opportunity to substitute teach today. Only for two hours to get my feet wet, but I believe the school will call me back if they need me. I had a wonderful class of 4th graders today. I had a slow start, but my confidence built quickly.
I feel so blessed just to see things moving forward. Small steps, but forward motion none the less.
God is so good!
