I had an interesting dream last night that I thought I would share. I was somewhere with a bunch of people (like a conference or something) and these three guys were threatening to beat me up. Noone, not my friends or any strangers would step up and help me. It was me against them and I was terrified. Then I realized that I didn't need to be relying on people to help me anyway, I needed to rely on God. So I got on my knees and prayed. I woke up right after that, with just the weirdest feeling and thinking about how this applies to my life today. I feel overwhelmed and terrified at times, by bills, income (or lack of), and well...let's face it, lately car repairs. LOL. I realized that I don't rely on God enough in those times. I rely on myself or on my friends too much and forget to rely on God. Not that there's anything wrong with relying on your friends, but you can't forget to rely on God first. Sometimes God sends you friends to help you through those times, but I think we should get down on our knees and pray to Him first.
Yesterday, I added the $25 I got for reviewing toys to the EF, so it is now at $255. Hard to believe that just over a week ago, it was at $0! God has really been blessing us there.
