Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

I hope this isn't forever

Panic attacks tonight.  and not just one unfortunately.

Trying to live on a percentage of my old income that is less than the percentage of my old income I paid in medical bills last year upsets me every payday.  I check to see my check has come through and then I get freaked out.  This month feels worse.  I have money I got from insurance for food loss.  (I've spent some of it but no matter what I need groceries.)   I need an oil change and new headlight.  It would be best for me to stay in Cleveland next week the night before my gyn appointment.  And by now my money is long gone and I haven't paid for Dr. Mind, gas, the meds that I have to pay for, or those random things that come up.  It'sreally hard.  I have some things to do to make this better; I have scrubs to sell to consignment.  I have some gold that is worth something that my father gave me.  I have a ring of unknown quality that probably is worth a little bit.  I have a few savings bonds.  I have change to cash in.  I try to hang on to these things because it's going to be a while before there is any way I can make money, and so I don't want to use the last options I have.

This is just hard because my mom is partially (a lot with big things) supporting me.  She just transferred my big credit card balance to a 0% offer she got and we're going to both pay until it is gone.  Aggressive but once my credit card don't have balances I will have more money.

I think I'm ready to go to weekly visits with Dr. Mind too.  That will save a TON of money.  Since my desire is partially motivated by money it may not work out but I think it is time to try.  He may want to continue until surgery if that is decided and will be soon but I think it's time to try it.  As I think about it though I am soooooo ready to try weekly again.  And since I'm able to whine about the weather keeping me prisoner in my house I think we're ok for handling things.  But it's a big step.  We'll see.

Thanks for sharing the Selah link. You can be "addicted" to them as much as you want as long as you share your supply with me/us! :) The group looks VERY happy as they mingle and minister. The story of the Muslim girl convert is compelling. We will hear "the rest of the story" in heaven one day.

It's so cool that your mom is helping (and 0%!) but money problems are very stressful, I know. I expect to hear about some miracles of God's provision for you but it's hard to have that kind of faith when pressed so hard.

This is from a little kid:

"Dear God, I say your prayer every night, 'lead us not into temptation and deliver us some e-mail' but I never get an e-mail from you. Do you have my right address?"

Cute, huh?

I hope some words about "the path" encourage you today. I recently met a young man with Proverbs 3: 5-6 inked on his upper arm. I dislike most tattoos but it was really beautifully done in a large "font." THERE IS HOPE FOR THE WORLD! :) He wouldn't have had room for the Amplified version! (If you ever want to find a scripture, remember Biblegateway.com...check it out. I love it.)

Proverbs 3:5-6 Amplified Bible

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.

In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.

Ephesians 2:10 Amplified Bible

For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

Bye for now, Michal
