I left the house in a mad rush to get to the fabric store. Sitting at the red light I was things of my future. What career path will I take next? Will I ever make enough money to put the girls through college? etc. The light turned green and I began to roll forward. It was like God whispered,"look left Autumn." I did and I had just enough time to hit the breaks and stop so that some crazy didn't crash into the side of our car with my two little girls in the back. Just enough time. The man in the car had gone right on red when clearly the sign says not to. My body was aching from tensing up. I took a deep breath and went on my way.
As I was merging on the interstate, I began to thank God for his goodness. For his whisper. This led into the same prayer I find myself always praying. Asking for guidance and direction in my career and future.
Then it hit me. I am where He wants me to be. He wants me to be present. Be content. My job is to be a mama to my two girls, and a wife to my husband. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. It's what I've prayed for so long. To have the opportunity to stay at home with my girls. And as soon as my prayer is answered there I go asking for what's next. How silly of me.
After another deep breath, I had this overwhelming sense of relief. I don't need or have to worry about what's next. God's already taken care of that.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about it's own things. Sufficient for the day is it's own trouble."
