As I lie in bed this am., I’m feeling weak from all the coughing and sinus. It’s been 10 days of this and working to feel better. I remember we have our closing on house number one tomorrow am. We are so blessed.!! I don’t know if I want to shout it from the mountain tops or put an ad in the paper or at least capitalize all the letters on a face book announcement that God is faithful and we accomplished closing on house number one: Halelujah!
I don’t have a big power packed life. I remember having a college professor who read my assignments and decided I lived in a fantasy world. She told the class that I’m behind the times and she picked on me for a whole semester. I don’t have a job that pays money. I don’t go to Starbucks regularly. I don’t go out with the girls often. I pray with my husband and defer to him. She told me I live somewhere in the 50’s regime and needed to get a life.
She was a single, independent professor who had a grown daughter in fast paced New York who she went to visit often. She communicates with her often. She doesn’t date often but tells her men friends she is a modern woman. She goes to seminars and things professors do. She liked the president and his ideals and many political actions I don’t necessarily agree with. She said she was a Christian. I wondered about how she could pick on me, daily, in class with the love of Jesus in her heart. (Love one another much?) The rest of the class grew to stand up for me in front of her. They would see me in the halls and comfort me. They said they didn’t know how she could say such insults to me in public.
Now that I’ve been to a Christian University and learned more of the Word, I can be assured of who I am better. I don’t have to be like everyone else. We are all individuals. I can have a loving Christian husband who fears and loves God. I can have my debts downsized after the selling of house tomorrow and live in my huge country house with my cattery and do whatever comes up to do if I wish. I can pray for others as the Spirit leads and save for trips and the yearly property taxes as I should. I am so blessed. On days where I feel tempted to compare my life to others, I can know who I am in my uniqueness. I can retain my sanity and not wish and hope. I don’t have to be as busy as my daughter. I don’t have to run to the gym and try to work on my outward appearance as some I know. I am a beloved child of the one true King.
We all wait for things in life……I am one example of someone who waited, in her own fashion, and God provided. God loves everyone and He wants the very best for those He made in His image……
