The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. – Isaiah 58:11
I live in a desert. But I don’t seem to mind that we have less water. Different vegetation grows. There is still beauty in the desert. God has a way of making even deserts beautiful.
I struggle sometimes with a scarcity mindset. When I left my day job and became a full-time entrepreneur, I didn’t imagine how hard it would be to be a full-time mom, as well. Being a parent is a full-time job in and of itself.
When you are your own boss, you are responsible for your own health insurance and your own retirement planning. It is a mindset shift, but God wants to transform and renew our minds to not focus on money or the lack thereof, but on Him and His purpose for our lives.
God knows we have financial needs, and He takes care of us, even during a pandemic. Jesus lived at a time before Roth IRAs and health insurance, yet He followed His Father’s will to the fullest. He had his priorities straight. He knows what is best for us and how to take care of us. Jesus is like the water in a garden during a drought. We can always count on Him. Amen.
