What's next?

"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" (Matthew 6:26)
I've been spending the last few days contemplating as to how I'd generate income for the family. Being on my own has forced me to think of things that I was so used to letting my ex worry about. The bills, my schooling, schooling for the boys and etc. Coming up with money for gas and groceries alone are already proving to be quite the headache. Sometimes I open the fridge and wonder how we'll get by. I've already applied for jobs and am waiting for a call back, I'm keeping my hopes up. But I won't lie. I'm scared.
No, let me rephrase that.
I'm terrified.
Understand that I would do anything to provide my boys with the best that I can, but how do I do so? I have no sense of direction. I need help. And just as reality was beginning to overwhelm me, I came across the passage above. I couldn't help but cry. It's funny how God communicates with us when we need Him the most. I'm now in the process of learning not to worry about the future and to depend on Him daily for strength and for everything else. God is good and indeed He will never leave our side. God will provide.


  1. GOD will indeed provide. HE has a plan. Know there are many storming the heavens on your behalf.
    Blessings and prayers, andrea

  2. Reese,

    As someone who has lived that exact daily situation for almost a year, God does provide just what we need to get by for the day. I will be praying for you as well that God will show you the answer to your prayers!
