*Sorry in advance for the long praise post*
Woke up this morning in a great mood, ready to face the day. Haven't been to the gym in a week, not happy about it yet I began my week last week working 33 hours in 3 days doing a deep clean, plus 3 more days of normal customers and my body is only just recovering. This whole journey I'm on is just that, a journey-not a race. I am competing with no one but myself so I REFUSE to beat myself up over it.
My car, Francois, is in the shop getting some minor work for our upcoming trip on Friday. I go to get into our truck, The Dark Knight, to go to work annnddd the truck starts then immediately dies... sigh. 😣 And I let it get to me. My good morning started unraveling right before my eyes. How will we pay for this trip if I don't work this week? 😭 Then God stepped in.
Our clients of many years has been letting us borrow their SUV, even though we've attempted to give it back many times, they insisted we hold on to it for now. God had a plan that we didn't see. He KNEW I'd need that SUV to get to work today, months after they originally let us borrow it. I got gas in it on the way and again, God stepped in. I dropped the gas cap while pumping, growled how f#*ked up my morning has been so far (mainly to myself) and the guy at the pump adjacent to mine picked it up for me and chimed in with a beautiful smile, "Don't worry, It'll get better!" We drove the same route to work (as he was in his work truck, #JohnnyOnTheSpot ) and the whole ride I began thanking God for this terrible morning, for the SUV we shouldn't still have, for Him speaking to me through that sweet man and his smile, and for allowing me to get to work safely while the kind soul followed me smiling and waving back when I waved as we drove the same route together.
And you know what? As I continued to give thanks for the morning's events, tears streaming down my face, a weight began lifting off my shoulders. My aggregation at this morning was magically gone. I feel wonderful knowing God always ALWAYS has a plan for us even when we don't see it.
