Although I have always known that all good things come from God, I have often neglected to give Him the credit. Now, after having experienced a life changing decision, I have become more aware of His personal attention and recognize each and every blessing and their unbelievable timing.
After 20 years in a dead-end job I felt that I couldn’t stay there another second, so I decided to leave. While the awesome indescribable relief of simply walking out that door was overwhelming, I worried that I might not be doing what God wanted me to do. I was old enough to retire and had “put in my time”, as it were, but the economy was bad and it was scary to lose the paycheck. I took all of it to God and asked Him to let me know He was standing by me in this decision. I imagined feeling His arms around me and instantly felt calmer. I sensed the warmth of His love and approval flowing into my very being. Then the blessings (hugs) began.
Four months later I found that I had become very frugal and was a much better money manager. When bills came due, God directed situations that supplied whatever was needed, and He provided unexpected help from various sources and persons. Every day now I am aware of and very grateful for the many hugs I receive……………All things work together for the good to those who love God (Romans 8:28)
