awesome timing

I just posted this on the wrong blog by mistake - grrrrr

As you know, Andy lost his job 15 months ago now and to say we have struggled sometimes has been an understatement. With the mortgage insurance payments ending next month that was beginning to be a HUGE worry for us. But for the last couple of weeks, I have had this really strong feeling that everything was going to be ok. I'd had a talk with God and vented my frustrations a week or so earlier, and then that's when this feeling and calm (in amongst a few moments of sheer panic began). In fact, I had so much faith in this feeling that I even started to plan for the future (remember the study and my talk of a holiday?) - something I hadn't done for nearly 2 years, since the job losses were announced. Over the last week or so this feeling has got even stronger and FINALLY today Andy was offered a job!

I always knew this would happen in God's own time - and just in the nick of time too! To have this happen a month before we would have struggled to the point of actually making a mortgage payment is just proof in my eyes of the awesome powerful nature of God.

Ok, so I'm rambling, but I just can't get my head around the awesome timing. Suddenly everything makes sense :)
