2020: More Courage, Self-control and Joy-July Edition

Wow! The year is halfway over. My heart is full of thankfulness as I sit down to look over the month of July.

When it comes to having courage, I feel great knowing that I have completed a temporary job with Perkins School for the Blind. I learned some new skills and met some nice people. I even got a chance to get some help with getting my resume up to date.

I had my follow up visit with my orthodontist and I am happy to report that I do not need a new retainer and my back tooth finally moved back to where it needed too.  Speaking of health, I was brave, and I broke down and I went to my low-income health center and applied for the sliding scale program. I am just waiting to hear back.

When it comes to self-control, I have had to wait on seeing things come to pass. For the past week I have been working on my self-employment paperwork. It was frustrating because I was not sure what I was doing. I really had to google a lot of the answers. I am happy to report that my business coach was happy with my progress. I learned that God walks with me no matter where life takes me. My friend from Alabama sent me back my hard drive and it still is not working. I know that God allowed this to happen to teach me to back up my work and not to be lazy. Always have a couple of copies of things in case something happens to the original.

Lastly, when it comes to joy, I have tried to focus on the fact that I am right where I need to be. I am still working on my book and online course I am writing. I have just finished reading the book of Revelation, and now I am studying the book of Daniel. I love getting closer to Jesus. I am learning to trust him more and more with my life.

What has happened in your life that has helped you draw closer to God? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I can feel your joy just by reading you blog today! I’m so happy for you. Wonderful that you completed your temporary job and you don’t need another retainer. God is always with me too. Sometimes it takes some time for us to see the answers but he does get to them. I will be posting a blog soon about a prayer he answered but it took 5 years. I was patient, I knew he would bring me joy in his answer.
