He knows our every need. This job presented itself, and I was delighted. It is just the right time frame to handle those end of the year expenses.
I stressed over pending bills
much more than monthly income
You heard my concerns
and provided me with work.
It is so hard, Lord, and
daily I depend on You to give
me inspiration to complete the tasks.
There was never a guarantee
that life would be easy
I am working for basic needs
Warmth and food and sharing
with others at this time of year
when snow falls freely and food
is scarce and warmth even rarer.
When I sigh and complain to You
remember I am not complaining about the mercy
of working, but the conditions that put me here.
Fill my bucket with faith
and fuel my body with Your energy
Because December approaches
and I am so tired.

I have two days off this week – Friday and Saturday – and will be so grateful to see them arrive.
