Of course, as I typed my post “Broke, Busted and Disgusted”, the universe saw me typing every word pertaining to any form of debt freedom. From here, the tests began -and the tests are happening as we near Christmas!
While taking my daughter to the dentist, I recalled needing to pay the co-pay. “Okay universe, I got this”, I thought to myself, “my budget is still in tact.” Since making my monthly budget, I suddenly have extra money. HA universe! I will share my budget in a separate post (be on the look out for it).
Back to the universe and what it was trying to do. The universe said, “That’s not how I am going to take you out; that’s too easy. A mere co-pay”… Bahahaha (insert evil villain laugh).
Of freakin’ course! The kid has 2 cavities, which cost at least $200 to fill. Right now, I feel like a crappy mom who could have done better flossing the kid’s teeth. Though the dentist reassured me it was not my fault, I still feel like crud. This is where the universe began its reign of terror. It started with the dentist and moved to the garbage disposal, which suddenly no longer worked. Okay, this isn’t huge. I don’t necessarily need a garbage disposal. Mommy now takes a breath and moves the garbage disposal down on the laundry list of many ‘things to do’ around the home. One. Two. Three…someone said counting helps with getting into a calm and relaxed state. Twenty-one. Twenty-two. Great gracious! How far into this count do I need to go?! By now, I have travelled into several states; calmed nor relaxed have been stopping points.
I heard a song which said if you say His name…”Jesus”…then the atmosphere must change. Okay. Here we go….”Jesus!”. No gusts of wind over me. No lights flickering. No burning bushes.
But wait. I blink my eyes and…ahhh. Okay. I get it. Just like that. I get it. Faith the size of a mustard seed.
Restyled Moms I just want you to know; as a matter of fact, I need you to know…there will be times when things fall apart. Please stay encouraged and know that its things that fall apart. You are far more important than things.
Scream, if you must. Count, if that works for you. Most importantly and above all, pray and have faith. It may not be any sudden and drastic change; but I assure you, God is working on your behalf. Keep the Faith Restyled Mom; Keep the Faith. Things will fall apart BUT GOD PUTS THEM BACK TOGETHER. In His own time.
Your Restyled Mom…who is sharing her mustard seeds and wants you to lean more into your faith
Bonus: Check out “Conscious Trust” to start leaning more into your faith 😉
