When I was kid, I thought this toy was one of the greatest things around.
“Weebles wobble, but, they don’t fall down.”
As an adult, I realize that toy holds the key to life. Wobble, but, don’t fall down.
If you read my tweets, you will see that I pray early every morning. Not just for myself, but for others as well.
If you know me personally, you know that prayer is an essential component of my existence.
No matter what is happening in my life, I pray. Good or bad.
We must not question the good Lord.
I realize that not everyone believes in God.
I realize that not everyone believes in the power of prayer.
Several years ago, I got sick.
I got really sick and I needed surgery.
I was commuting from NJ to NY on a daily basis.
My doctor said the commute could kill me.
The surgery would save my life.
I told my employer I needed to have surgery and began preparing for it.
Later that afternoon, I was called into my supervisor’s office.
My illness was considered a pre-existing condition.
The insurance would not cover the surgery.
Have faith in God and trust his word.
Tearfully, I went to my local welfare office and applied for Medicaid.
I knew my application was rejected when I heard the supervisor go into the back and laugh amongst her co-workers.
“She makes more money than me. How is SHE asking for help?”
We don’t know how, we don’t know when.
Each day I went without surgery, was another day I could have died.
I went home, defeated.
We must not question the good Lord. Have faith in God and trust his word.
I got a phone call from my job, asking if I could possibly come in to work the next day.
They had found a way for me to have my surgery and I needed to sign some papers.
I won’t go into the details of how it was worked out. But it was.
In addition to being able to collect disability during my recovery, my job gifted me one month’s salary so that I would have no worries.
That’s how he works. That’s how the good Lord, he works.
I have many testimonies.
I’m looking forward to many more.
This I know: Times are tough.
Being self-employed in an unpredictable industry is not easy.
Payment is never guaranteed and deals fold as quickly as they are laid on the table.
Raising a young man as a single mom kicks me in the butt DAILY.
But, this I know.
God is good.
And I will continue to pray, in the good and bad – because I know HE HEARS AND ANSWERS MY PRAYERS.
STAND ON THE WORD! You might weeble, you may even wobble, but, he will NEVER let you FALL.
