In the fall of 2015, I did the design work for the GiveLife campaign as a gift to the church. I believe in giving a ‘tithe’ on your abilities to the Kingdom and didn’t expect anything in return, but God had different ideas. At the time I had a part-time design job that I was increasingly unhappy with and had also been playing around with starting a freelance design business on my days off. I had a few things going but nothing serious.
My work on the campaign finished around November 2015 and in January 2016 God kick-started my design business pretty much without me. It just took off with divine intervention. I don’t advertise, I have never chased any business and yet every time the last job finishes, something else comes up and it hasn’t stopped. I keep shaking my head in amazement.
Then in the summer of 2016, God went to work on my job situation. First He brought me victoriously through the ‘Bait of Satan’ (you have to read the book to understand) situation at my previous employer and provided me with an amazing new job out of the blue. I didn’t even apply! It came with a substantial pay raise, better hours, paid lunch, great co-workers, lots of creative opportunity and BENEFITS! (it’s a part-time job!)
And just to top it all off … last summer my sister in law passed along a gift she couldn’t use of almost $1000 of beautiful patio furniture that I love and had always wanted.
Of course, there are lots of smaller blessings and some are private, but I am so blessed!
