New Perspectives

02 Oct

I have a new opportunity before me to be a blessing to someone else.  There is a young, homeschooling mother I know.  She used to babysit me and now I babysit her kids.  I have started going to her house every day to be a help to her.  Cleaning, organizing toys, helping with teaching, and keeping the baby occupied during school time for the older ones are some of the things I help with.

Little did I know that when I went over my first day, the mom would have a terrible headache.  She could barely move, it was so bad.  At that moment, I was grateful for the migraine I had the day before.  I just don’t think I would have been able to minister as well to her if I hadn’t had that experience myself.  I wouldn’t have been as sympathetic to her.

Isn’t it amazing?  What God has planned for us in his wisdom? He knows what is best for me, even if I don’t like it.  So I trust in God, because he loved me before I was born and he enables me to have faith in him. And he is all good, all the time.

      Thanks! I really feel like I’m being blessed by them and all I’m learning through this time. My family has been such an encouragment to me, too!
