I will try (as time permits) to bring them here for you...but today I can...
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3
Am I destined to work at Walmart? ....
I said those words way back in March.
Here I am back at Walmart for the third time.
A 'lifer' now is what I call myself..lol.
I'm not saying I went back willingly. Just ask my family.
Kicking and crying and sobbing and whining, than kicking and crying..you get the picture.
140 days of 'vacation'...that is what I called Unemployment and looking for a job. It was wonderful. Especially since the last time I was unemployed was when I was pregnant with my eldest.
That was 24 years ago.
I can't tell you the times people make the comment to me at work about 'your always so happy', 'there she is smiling again', 'you in such a good mood'.
What Elisabeth Elliot wrote here is what goes through my mind many times while at work (or at home, etc)...
I'm doing as unto the Lord.
It helps me be more pleasant (for the most part).
Since I'm not perfect there are times I lose it and tell the Lord I really don't care and is He really serious? Like hellooooo, I'm supposed to deal with this? I don't think so!
waaa waaaa waaa Walmart child kicking in...
Reason being the Lord has brought me back to Walmart.
To become a Walmart adult and stop my whining, screaming, kicking and throwing a temper tantrum like a Walmart child (everyone has heard a Walmart child while shopping in Walmart, right?)
My relationship with God has been me being a Walmart child kicking up a hissy fit for most of her life!~
Praise God for His patience and love as a Father.
Praise God He does know what He is doing, even if we don't know what He is doing and can't figure it out....
Trust. Commit. Trust.
Faith is seeing the invisible(and I add become visible), believing in the impossible and receiving the incredible.
