I couldn’t sleep after hearing such tragic news.
Put on the full amour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Today is the Day
My heart was also pounding because I sensed God doing something in me, though I had no idea what it was. There was a strong prompting to read my personal emails, so while Bren went to sleep, I switched on my phone and scrolled down to the next email I was to read.
Side-note: I have many devotional emails in my inbox that are unread simply because I can’t keep up with the sheer amount that I’ve subscribed to, haha. I don’t delete them unless I’ve read them, as I really benefit from those devotionals! So when I do decide to read them, it is usually one that is from long ago!
It is amazing how God works.
The email title was what caught my attention immediately – Today is the day to go after your dreams, by Holley Gerth. Even before I clicked to read the devotional article, my heart was already pouring out to the Lord, saying, “You know me, You know my dream. It is simply to be a Mum, and to stay home to care for my children. How do you want me to go after such a dream? It seems so out of my reach…”
And as if everything fell into place suddenly, a surge of courage just welled up within me to make the decision of faith that I would have to hold on to alone for a long period of time.
A decision of faith that only God knew was out of obedience to Him, but no one could understand my reason for such a decision yet – I knew I had to leave my job.
