God’s Plan is Greater than Coincidence

A story of transformation

“As you know, my family went through hard times in 2019 and 2020. We relied on Love INC for food, gas and diapers for our child.

I finally found work and have been working since August! I even found a job in my field in the middle of a global pandemic and record unemployment!

Last week I had a convicting conversation with another Christian to take a hard look at our blessings and see what God has planned for those blessings. Wow, since August we have experienced a rare time of life in which our bank account has grown alongside our hard work with no real bank draining “emergency”. Add the stimulus money to that and a couple of bonuses at work… we are light years away from our hard times.

So I was inspired to take a few hours to map out how I could work some extra hours to support others financially as well. Mainly through supporting my friends and family’s small businesses and a few GoFundMe’s. It’d only be about $110 per month and it would take me away from our son for some extra hours each week. I prayed and asked a friend to join me in prayer for discernment that this is the right thing to do.

This morning, I woke up ready to work some extra hours so that I can help others!! Right at the start of my workday, I was awarded a significant raise.

Coincidence? No, I think that’s God’s plan!!!
