Slacker! That’s all I can think about. But, I pray that God will have mercy upon me and will allow me to be a good steward of this platform to proclaim His name. I have put this blog in God’s hands because, after-all, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it” (Psalm 24:1, NIV).
Anyway, I figured a testimony was appropriate to restart my commitment; this blog business started with me wanting to share testimonies 🙂
I can only describe my life right now as something a friend of mine said, “Girl, you’re lacking in everything!” This is true. I recently relocated to Amherst, MA in hopes of working (full-time) with The Navigators; but things haven’t exactly gone as expected. So, I need money, which means I need a job (but it could also mean that someone can just generously give me a million dollars… but I’ll stick with reality). Anyway, I need a job, which means I need to send in applications, which means I need some form of device (a laptop) that’ll reach that end. Unfortunately, my laptop, Leo, is reaching the end of his life.
This past couple of months, Leo would turn on but won’t work; so, I have been without a laptop (and none was available for me to use). It didn’t really bother me because before Leo stopped working I had put in a lot of applications and I was expecting call-backs… And I kept expecting call-backs… I am still expecting call-backs. It was obvious I needed to put in more applications, but that meant I would need to go to the library. I did do that one day, but then I realized how very inconvenient the entire process was– I’ll save you the details.
Today was my “Applications Day” day. I woke up this morning and I told God (more like kinda cried and whined) that I didn’t want to go to the library. I wasn’t in the best mood and I just wanted to stay indoors (which is also my natural disposition, my personality, if you will). I didn’t even pray to God about my laptop because I thought it was ridiculous to ask God to fix something like that, something that seemed dead already– also, admittedly, a part of me didn’t believe that God will actually answer because it’s a laptop! Talk about no faith!!! Anyway, I turned on Leo and he works! In fact, I am writing this on my precious Leo!
It is amazing to me how much God cares for me! This blows my mind! He cares for me enough to let my laptop work again, properly, even! I am expecting a job after this– a good one, too, because His blessing “brings wealth and he adds no trouble to it” (Proverbs 10:22, NIV). As a matter of fact, I am expecting a new laptop!
This may make me sound like a spoiled brat, but God did it for me anyway! I am overjoyed.
Praise Jesus with me!
