Few months ago, Bren talked to me about his issues at work, his hopes for his career and our future, and on how things may be increasingly uncertain in the coming months. It was over a nice Chinese dinner after work, and it was definitely a good time of sharing as we contemplated on several key issues, including finances and the possibility of building our little family up.
Assured him that he has my support, and we agreed to pray over it and commit the situation unto God. After all, He is sovereign and will show us His direction!
It didn’t take long before He answered.
The very next day, Bren received assurance on his job prospects. He called me sounding really happy, and I couldn’t wait to knock off work to meet him for a happy dinner after that!
But God is better than just “good”. He is very, very good.
Bren later called me in the evening with such joy in his voice, asking me to guess how much money his account now has, haha. Yes, he just received his bonus, and it was a lot more than what he’d expected!
It is beyond us how God works. It felt like such a load off our shoulders, knowing that it was the confirmation and assurance we needed at that point in time.
That same night, while waiting to meet him to have our favorite pasta dinner at the coffee-shop near our place, I went to the ATM machine to draw out money.
And this was what I saw along the steps…
Is it incredible or what. The heart(s) always appear at the absolute RIGHT moment, and I know…it is His heart – of love, comfort, provision, and a whole lot more than we can ever imagine.
Praise God. 🙂
