In this economy, a promotion of any type is hard to find. At least that's what I was thinking to myself until Mark got home yesterday. I have been stressed because with me not working (ie no second income) I was worrying about the fact that I wanted to take the summer off from school (not getting my GI bill over the summer). I knew that we would make it financially, but I was also aware that money would be very tight. I gave it to God. I have been praying daily about the stress that seemed to get stronger as we got closer to the summer months. I prayed that God, knowing that my greatest weakness is worrying about finances, would just make something happen. I should have never doubted God. Mark came home yesterday with a great announcement...He got a promotion at work which he will start training for June 1st (which happens to be the last month that I will receive my GI bill until fall!) WOW! GOD IS GOOD! He will always provide!

Matthew 6:25-27 (New International Version)

Do Not Worry
25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[a]?
