God is Peace

On October 4, 2023. It was a strange day. I was at work and everything seemed normal, until someone came to cover my work station and told me that HR wants to talk with me. On my way to there I felt God, he was getting me ready for something. It felt like a heaviness. I got into the office, they asked me to sit. They past a letter over to me saying that I was terminated immediately. The reason was because I'm no longer a good fit for the company. I asked what does this mean. No one could give me an answer other than I no longer work here. This was a huge shock. I was frustrated but remained calm. I texted my wife immediately and she called me wondering what had happened. I told her I was coming home that I got fired, not really fired but let go. I got home and my wife was calm and in peace. Not sure why but I was upset, probably because I didn't have a reason for the dismissal of my job. I wanted more understanding but no one had the answers.

The next morning I uneasy, my wife said get into the word before anything else. Thats exactly what I did. After I did, I felt a peace come over me that I can't explain. I was no longer in a worry state of confusion. The Holy Spirit gave me a peace and I felt love from Him. I knew I was in good hands. I called my brother in Christ for more understanding that morning and to my surprise, it started making more sense. His wife was so excited for us because she saw it as a blessing and she couldn't wait to see what God had in store for us. Just because one door got shut, God is going to open another, all cause of His love for His children. This scripture came to mind. ‭‭

Luke‬ ‭12:24‬ ‭NIV‬‬

[24] Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!

One thing that my brother said was now is time to get closer to our Father (Abba). Thats exactly what I did. I took this time off to get a closer relationship with Jesus. I got into the word (bible) more. I have watched some movies of the gospels and listened to worship music. Was going to a Bible study once a week. More and more i was starting to feel His presence and started to see God working in places i never noticed before. I had joy instead of being in a worry state. No more confusion, not worrying about not having a job. The Holy Spirit gave me peace and help me see losing my job as a blessing. Thank you Father God for your love and being here with me always. For taking this burden from me. I may not understand why it happened but I put my full trust in you. Praise God

I kept meditating on these verses.

Matthew‬ ‭6:25‭-‬26‬ ‭NIV‬‬

[25] “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? [26] Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

[34] Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

So I decided to put all my trust in Him. I will follow you Jesus and wait for you to guide my feet with your light. I may not understand but i have faith. My Shepherd will lead me to my next job.

I hope this can help someone that might be going through a struggle of some kind and remember Jesus is right there waiting for you to have a intimate relationship with Him. Love you all and God bless.

Stop Holding Back

There are times when I'm at church worshipping. I get this urge to shout so loud, so loud that everyone hears me. I don't understand why but when I let it out I feel something in me that gets excited.
