Prayer Journal: Day 62

Day 62

For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. – Hebrews 4:15-16

Today is the first day in several years that I don’t have health insurance. Jesus knows what we need and we can trust that He will supply for all our needs. Jesus did not have health insurance, either. But He didn’t worry about it. As far as we know, he didn’t worry about work deadlines. He spent time in meditation and prayer and went where His Heavenly Father told Him to go. He had absolute trust in the divine design of His Heavenly Father for His life. And so must we.

Prayer Journal: Day 58

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.

Prayer Journal: Day 57

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me.” – John 14:1

Jesus knew that sometimes our hearts would be troubled. It takes faith to dispel doubt. When major life changes happen, such as a loved one changes jobs, a move might happen, or people in our lives might change, life feels uncertain. It’s normal to wonder if everything will be okay when we are in transition.

Change is okay. Jesus experienced major changes, some that are hard to fathom. He was immortal, but came down to Earth to experience life and death for us. He didn’t have to do that. It was an incredible sacrifice, but He loves us so much that He was willing to endure the cross for us. When we put that sacrifice into perspective, and compare it to the minor struggles we face in life, there is really no comparison. Our lives are easy. Our burdens are light. Jesus paid the cost to save us.

By the end of October 2020, my health insurance plan will end. 

But does it really matter? Although it took longer than I expected to recover from COVID-19, I feel much better, even though I occasionally have fatigue and nausea, 57 days after the day I found out I tested positive for COVID-19. I have my husband and family to support me, but most of all, I can always rely on God. Even when life seems uncertain, God will see it through. He will always be there for us, and He will always take care of us. Amen.
