Following my last blog, Life Inside the Box , I’m going to tell you the series of events that occurred over the next month and a half. This will, of course, be over the course of a few more posts. But, just to give you a bit of insight on what you are about to read, I was not living in faith. I was living in a state of fear and uncertainty of what was to come next. I believe this is the sole reason as to why I had to go through the unfortunate, yet eye-opening circumstances I am about to unveil to you.
After I was let go from my job, I immediately found another one. This new job came with a substantial pay cut, along with a totally contrasting environment than I expected to be in. You see, I was grasping at straws, trying everything in my power to put the broken pieces of my life back together. Little did I know that if I only had faith that God would provide for my husband and I, things would have worked out a tad bit different than they did.
I had just got off work and was on my way to see a friend, when I was in a car accident that totaled my beloved Jeep. When I say beloved, I mean that I absolutely LOVED my Jeep. But, here’s the kicker: I did not realize that I had put my vehicle (a materialistic possession) before a lot of things in my life. Most importantly, I put it before God and His people. However, in the moment, I did not see it this way. I saw it as the devil pulling me down into the unknown. First taking the highest paying job I had ever obtained, and now the nicest vehicle I had ever owned?! Why was this happening to me, and why, of all times, now? What was I doing wrong? How could I fix this?
My downward spiral began to get out of control. I didn’t know who to turn to or where I would go from here. I had no idea that this was only the beginning of many more life changing events. Though I am telling you this in my present circumstances, please know that I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. Although I may not know exactly what the reason for all of this is yet, I believe that it will all make sense one day. I will know, without the shadow of a doubt, why each and every hardship I have been through came and met me in the midst of my own personal nightmare.
