Last year, things were a mess.
We had to shut down our office for an entire month. Then, my husband had an operation that left me at home caring for him full time for two months. Immediately following this, my state (Kerala, in southwest India), was hit with the worst flood in a century. All business in Kerala stopped. And since one of my biggest clients serves the tourism industry, a large portion of my income disappeared.
I was overwhelmed by panic. I didn’t know how to go on. How would I pay my bills or hospital expenses? We resorted to borrowing money from my parents and in-laws, which was humbling. I never imagined I’d ever have to borrow money from my parents when I was almost 40!
I felt like I’d hit rock bottom.
Fortunately, God’s Word has a way of opening our eyes to see His goodness, especially when we’re at rock bottom. Time after time, God’s Word reminded me that God is my defender and that He never stops working. Through the trial, I learned to depend on Him moment by moment, taking one day at a time.
I began to trust everything was happening for a reason. Instead of being discouraged and afraid, I began to embrace what He was doing and trust Him to provide. Things started to change. My business grew and new projects came in every month. Trusting God and feeling the freedom to be present made all the difference. Instead of worrying about the future, I can look to Him and believe He always has a plan and a way to provide.
