Then Christ Came
I woke up at 11:30 AM this morning.
I have to go to the bank and deposit $107 to cover the next bills until Next Payday, which is on Tuesdays. This means I have to have $828 in the bank by the 25th to cover all of next week's bills. That's how much I have to make in the next 6 days, including today.
That will cover all the bills until the 2nd, excluding rent. Which means I have to get on the ball to do what I need to to pay the rent that is already due plus that, or I am going to be behind on next month's rent as well as this one.
I'm going to be doing a lot of "Sparking" today, as well as Uber and Lyft to try to make the money I need.
I am so tired. I really need a day off. But, I am an indentured servant right now, so I have to keep working. I have indentured myself out to the loan companies and credit cards until they are paid off. Not to mention, Uncle Sam, who wants his money as well.
Yesterday was an especially good day for a change. I hope today is even better, now that my finances are getting back on track.
I ate at Taco Trip, yesterday. That was the highlight of my day. I spent the rest of the day searching for pings on the apps.
It's starting to feel tedious, and I can feel the impending burn-out. But, I pray for strength.
Lord, Most High God and Creator,
You know all of my needs. You know my heart, my good intentions. You know my strengths and my weaknesses. You also know that I am not perfect, but that I am trying, and that I depend on YOUR strength to keep me going in the direction that YOU want me to go.
I pray that You continue to work on me where I need to be worked on, according to YOUR view of how YOU want to see me, and what YOU want me to become. Help me to grow and learn from what I am going through currently, and use me right where I am in my life in every way that You can do so to help build YOUR kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven.
This world is not my home. I am working here to pass the time until the day I get to join You and Dr. Stanley and all the other Saints who made it home already. Until then, I need Your strength and Your guidance.
Be with my children and my lists.
In Jesus's Holy Name, I pray, Amen!
1 Peter Chapter 2
18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
19 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
