God IS Good

For the last week or so my back has been acting up something serious. It mostly hurts first thing in the morning and late into the evening. It’s very stiff and has me moving around like my lower vertebrae is stuck together. My 80-something year old grandmother moves around better than I have been these last few days. I thought, “Maybe I’m over-doing it in the gym,” but I quickly dismissed that idea. It’s just time that something is officially done to decrease the stiffness and get me back to tip-top condition.

Luckily, my letter to change doctors was approved.

In the process of setting up an appointment with the new doctor, my nurse case manager happened to tell me, “Julia, let me sneak this in…you’re lucky they finished your paperwork as soon as they did. They’ve stopped the vocational program (the program that allows one to either find another job or go to school to learn a new skill while still getting paid) and are sending everyone back to work in a permanent limited duty position. You slipped through the cracks on this one.”

All I could say was, “Thank God.” I didn’t slip through anything. God orchestrated the whole process. From my injury two weeks after transferring here to going to school to do something that I love for FREE. God had His hand in all of it. There was no luck, no strategy, no slipping through the cracks. Yeah, I may have had to struggle, and yes, my faith was tempted throughout the process. Nonetheless, I persevered. I followed my heart and held on to what I knew to be true.

God is a way maker. He makes a way when the path seems blocked. When everyone else says “no,” God says “yes.”

So if you are feeling doubtful about anything in your life, try God. If people have turned their backs on you, turn to Jesus. Whatever you may be going through, whatever obstacle is in your way, let my testimony be of encouragement to you. God has the final say because He knows the plans He has for us. It may be hard to let go. Lord knows it was a struggle for me to leave Atlanta and come here. My obedience paid off for me in the long run because He had a plan for me here. Find out what His plan is for you.

Blessings & Prosperity!
