An interesting thing happened concerning what I wrote about in my last blog.
I realized this morning during my quiet time that I have to quit dwelling on the things that were bothering me, which are basically the feeling like I’m not there enough for my kids; that I should maybe quit my job so I can be a housewife and mother again.
Then, as usual, before I started my bible reading, I asked God to speak to me.
My bible reading for today was the story of Jonah.
Then I understood.
Jonah took off because he didn’t want to submit to God’s will. And he was very miserable afterwards too.
I realized that’s exactly it. I have stopped submitting to God’s will and started doing things on my own.
So I prayed and it was one of the few times where God answered directly and immediately.
“I guess I need to submit to Your will” I prayed, “I want to be a housewife to Brad. I want to be his helper. How do I do that?”
God answered, “Supplement his income.”
I prayed, “But what about the kids?”
Do you know what God said then?
