Checks from above (God answered my prayer)
First, I must say that aside from anything monetary, I am oh so very grateful to God for opening my eyes to my new life. I am living with so much peace and happiness that I can say that this alone should be enough. However, this past month I got an extra gift.
My husband lost his job and I have been unemployed for about 5 months now. This was obviously a concern, with the rent payment just a few days away. For some reason, unlike my husband, I was not worried. Somehow God had given me the certainty that everything was going to be ok.
Every night we prayed together thanking God for allowing us to live in our wonderful neighborhood and apartment, and that gave me more peace and assurance that all would be ok. If I felt any negative thought coming in or any sign of worry, I would quickly change it for a positive thought. I kept reading positive stories about The Secret. I even looked up the video of Oprah explaining the Secret in her life and the moment she first saw it work. Shed mentioned a song she was singing (I Surrender All ) and I made it my song.
My husband was feeling really down. He was really worried about how we were going to pay the rent. I always tried to pick him up and assure him that God was going to help us. I remember he was sitting at the computer looking really down, and I was telling him that I have always felt that I was special to God. That God has always showed his incredible mercy and love for me. I was on my way to the supermarket with only $5 to try to buy something to cook, and instead of complaining about only having $5, I said, thank you God for giving me these $5 to buy food. I was thankful for every single thing.
Before heading to the market I went to check the mail (I have made it a habit to check the mail, always expecting money). This time God had answered my prayers. It was the 29th of the month and he gave me two checks (this was from my previous job – and remember I was out of work for over 5 months). One for $1,684.28 and another for $584.20. I could not believe it. I was praying that somehow God would give us the money to pay the rent on the 1st of the month (I had made out the check weeks before, just waiting for God to deliver). God delivered just in time and more than needed for the rent. We had money to pay the rent, buy groceries, and help my mother in-law.
I believe it was the combination of believing (since I had the check ready before I had the money), and not worrying (we must remember that the God that performed miracles thousands of years ago can still do it now). I had full trust in God and somehow he gave me a wonderful peace (it took some months to get to this, but I am glad I am here). I somehow just knew and he delivered.
I am asking God for more miracles; now to pay off everything and to have my dream home. I know he will give me enough for myself and to share with others.
Be immensely Happy, Grateful, and share that with others.
Thank you God for being so good to me!
