God's Timing


Post by Ashley Fierros

God has been so faithful to provide just what I need! That seems to be the resounding theme for me these days! For the last 3 years I have been blessed to be the curriculum coordinator for Pura Vida Missions in Costa Rica. It is seasonal job and a helpful source of income. So I will be wrapping it up this coming week as it will be the last curriculum I put together for this year which means that income will subside. But God is sooooooo faithful and good!

I felt that The Lord was moving me towards getting a part time job. So, two months I applied online for Carrabbas Italian Grill. I was a previous employee years ago and felt that I could make some extra money by working just a few days per week. However, I hadn’t heard anything from them after applying I assumed the Lord wasn’t opening up that door.

Then one day while I was taking a break in Philly I received a phone call from the proprietor of Carrabbas, Cheryll. She wanted to know if I was still interested in the position for the job! So, I went in and signed the paperwork.

The beautiful thing was when I had applied I still had 2 months of curriculum to do and being heavily involved in church plant I would have been overwhelmed. God knew though and took care of it! So now that curriculum is over for this season God has now provided another source of income!

Again, like Isaiah 55:8 says, His thoughts are not my thoughts and neither are His ways my ways! He has the way for me and all I need to do is just rest in His plan! He provides just enough for this day!! So please be praying that God opens up opportunities to shine His light in Carrabas as He reveals to me the need that is there! I am His servant on mission everyday as I go about my day and I want to use my time to do His will!
