My First Sign from God?

Thursday, November 12, 2015

I prayed again this morning. I asked God to send me another sign, because if he had sent any at all, they weren't big enough for me to see. I wasn't scolding, I was pleading. I explained to him that my depression was getting worse, and that I needed help, if only for today. I told him that I'd pray for the same thing every day, since praying once to banish my depression is a little stubborn.

So here I am, hoping I'd find my sign from God. And I think I received one. Now let me back track for just a second.

I found out not too long ago that I wouldn't be able to enroll in school this semester until I paid back $3,600 in loan money because I medically withdrew from my classes. That upset me so much, since school has helped with depression by giving me something to concentrate on. I took over $1,000 (the only money I had left) and paid some of the debt. That still meant I had about $2,600 left to go.

Something told me to check it again today. I looked, and it said I owed $1,168. It was still money I couldn't afford, but something also told me to call them about it. The lady on the other line told me it was a mistake that I owed so much, and that they are still adjusting numbers. "After it is all said and done", she said, "you shouldn't owe anything. In fact, you should get the amount you already paid back before Thanksgiving."

What was that I was feeling? Well, tears of joy of course! This meant I could enroll back in school this semester! I was so happy!

Now I know that God doesn't care much about money, but I don't think that's exactly what he was trying to help me with. I think he was trying to help relieve the stress that was on my shoulders and give me a chance to go back to school. Because school keeps my mind off of depression as much (unless I overwhelm myself, which I don't plan on doing ever again).

Let's just say I got on my knees and thanked God. I honestly believe that was my sign, and I will not deny one bit that there is something more out there looking over me!

    God made that puppy you love. He is the Source of every good thing. A faith relationship with the living Jesus through prayer connects us with God. The Way back to God is explained in the Bible. God commanded that the way back to His love and favor begans with faith and His Son. If you have questions, I will be glad to share. God will lift you out of depression into His peace -- if you deal with Him. emoticon

    Again, I'm not a believer, but I do believe things happen for a reason and they shouldn't have charged you at all. They encouraged it, practically gave you no choice so they should indeed work with you. I'm glad everything worked out.... When you're not in a bad mood, read my blog but please don't do it when you've had a bad day, it's a pretty upsetting blog but if you follow me about my son, it's a need to know what's been going on on my end =[

    My friend sometimes it is how we interpret the events in our life. When you believe you will see signs that you might try to explain as a coincidence or happenstance, but when you believe, truly believe you give God a lot of credit. It is all based on your position in life. I think giving him credit is the best way to go.

    Sometime when I am not so busy (laughing) I will tell you my story of money after my divorce. Talk about an overwhelming feeling.
