Magnitude

5 months ago, I considered myself losing. I didn’t have a 9-5, I was depressed, stressed, I’d exhausted my savings, and I prayed that God would save me. Honestly, I was struggling in all areas: mentally, financially, spiritually, and emotionally. I questioned God and whether or not I should continue to pray, considering my prayers weren’t going any higher than the ceiling. I’d applied for so many jobs, and was turned down for the majority of them. I can remember applying for a number of jobs, only for them to reply instantly with a “Thank you for your interest” email, to which I was disheartened to receive. When nothing had come through, I fervently and boldly went to God, to “remind” Him of His promises.

While I was looking for answers, I continued to “look for the rain”. Although I was not happy about my situation or the fact that God wasn’t doing anything (so I thought), I kept on “asking,” “seeking,” and “knocking,” because I knew sooner or later, He would answer….and He did! God has truly blessed me! He saw to it, that I had a handful of people who supported me during my time of need. Most importantly, He blessed me to go from no job, to THREE! What I thought I had lost when I was eliminated from my position, was nothing compared to the magnitude of what I’ve just received. For five months, I cried and worried myself to no end, because I thought that hole I was in, was going to become permanent.

Then I remembered, that my problems have an expiration date, and so does yours. I don’t care how many times you ask, seek, and knock, don’t stop until you receive it, find it, and the door is opened unto you!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
