Praising the God of the Breakthrough!
Before this year began, I felt God challenging me to believe in Him for the big things. To stop limiting Him based on my own doubts. Not long after, I caught a program by Joel Osteen where he talked about living "breakthrough-minded". Taking the limits off of God and believing He would show up not with a trickle or a stream, but like a flood.
I wrote a list in my journal of the big things I was going to dare myself to believe God for. Top on the list was a job for my husband that paid well and gave him more time to be with our family. Well today I'm praising God for the goodness He has just flooded us with! After 6 months of being unemployed, my husband was offered (and accepted) a job with our State Controllers Office! A Monday through Friday, 40 hour work-week, with State holidays, weekends off and great benefits. After spending 10 years at his former job in a highly stressful environment, working 50 hour plus weeks and missing out on Saturdays with the family, this job is literally an answer to our prayers!
God is good!
