I have a new opportunity before me to be a blessing to someone else. There is a young, homeschooling mother I know. She used to babysit me and now I babysit her kids. I have started going to her house every day to be a help to her. Cleaning, organizing toys, helping with teaching, and keeping the baby occupied during school time for the older ones are some of the things I help with.
Little did I know that when I went over my first day, the mom would have a terrible headache. She could barely move, it was so bad. At that moment, I was grateful for the migraine I had the day before. I just don’t think I would have been able to minister as well to her if I hadn’t had that experience myself. I wouldn’t have been as sympathetic to her.
Isn’t it amazing? What God has planned for us in his wisdom? He knows what is best for me, even if I don’t like it. So I trust in God, because he loved me before I was born and he enables me to have faith in him. And he is all good, all the time.
