My friends quickly learn that, if you’re going to hang out in my life, you’re probably going to end up in my blog. To the friends who may be learning that right.this.second…my apologies.
I have a knack for making friends in times and places that I didn’t mean to. My job is one of those places. I never start a new job with the thoughts of what friends I may make, but invariably, The Lord has other plans and it just happens. I gain new friends. He is so good to me!
One of those friends called me last night. She works at the store I was at for a few months and has accepted a position in a different store. It is an all-around better opportunity for her. It will bring her closer to home in a job she prefers. The assistant manager isn’t being a great sport about the whole situation because she hasn’t been in her position very long. He said the store manager isn’t happy either, but since the manager is on vacation, there’s no way to truly know until my friend sees him face to face. My opinion was, don’t accept what’s been filtered through the assistant, wait until you hear the word from the one that matters.
You know, the spiritual and the physical worlds typically parallel. My friend is experiencing that truth.
Her sweet mom has been battling cancer for a few years – quite successfully. But, this time, the news wasn’t as good. The tests didn’t come out as hoped. The fear is real. My opinion is the same as the other situation – Don’t accept any word except from the One that Matters.
Since that conversation last night, I’ve had a song rolling in me that I learned years ago at Harvest Church. My precious friend Michelle would often play it at our ladies retreats. I’m just gonna leave that song right here for my sweet friend and her mom. And for anyone else who needs to be reminded of this truth. God is God. He doesn’t operate by our standards or timetables. And He’s always good.
Whose report will you believe?
We shall believe the report of The Lord!
His report says I am healed
His report says I am filled
His report says I am free
His report says victory!
Be blessed and tell someone you love them.
