If you know me personally, or have read Life with Lynnie (LwL) for a long time, you'll know that I have not been able to work at my real estate job, for quite a while. Due, of course, to still recovering from that major surgery, that has left me very weak.
Even so, there are times when I must do things required by Realtors.
Like attending real estate board meetings, at times. Just like I did on Tuesday, June 9th.
I had seen the course information, when it was e-mailed to me. And, since it involves government changes for us, I signed up to attend that education course.
After all, we must attend education courses, in order to be able to renew our licenses.
A few days after I signed up for the course, I received an e-mail from my real estate broker. She sent that message not just to me, but also to everyone who works for her brokerage firm.
The message was that she insisted each one of us sign up for the course.
To me, this was wonderful, since I had already signed up for it! So, I knew I'd be making her happy.
Then, I also got a message from my apartment building office.
The message let me know that on that same day... Tuesday, June 9th, I would have to have my vehicle removed from the parking garage... by 8:00 a.m., as my section of the parking garage was being cleaned out. I was also told that I would be able to return to park there, after 12:00 p.m. Noon!
When I received this message, I thanked God for providing for me.
After all, I didn't set up both of those things to occur the same day. Nor, even at the same time period. But, God did!
This way, I didn't have to get up early, and go out for about four (4) hours, finding something to do. You see, there's nowhere nearby to park.
I must admit, I was truly grateful that God provided for me. I felt so very blessed.
Thinking about how God provided for me, brought to mind Matthew 7:11, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?"
Okay, I realize some of you may think that we are not evil.
Some of us, aren't. At least, not anymore.
Not since we've gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ!
However, before we came to Christ, we were not yet forgiven for our sinfulness. So, we may have been considered evil.
Even before we gained salvation, most of us would have loved our children. And, given them good gifts.
At least, I believe I did.
But, the fact is, God is even a better parent than we could ever be.
He loves us so much, that He gives good things. Far better things than we could ever give.
For this, I am grateful. And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
