No barriers between you and God's love

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

It wasn’t the first day I’d woken up worried. My husband had been unemployed for, well, ages, and my job was only part time. Home, food, cars, taxes, raising a kid—living wasn’t exactly free. So I was worried. I felt like I’d been frowning for months.

This particular day, I remember getting ready to go out and do some errands. But I was so concerned about our finances that I was almost in tears. I was exasperated that my poor, discouraged husband wasn’t out pounding the pavement (we lived in the country so there wasn’t actually that much pavement to pound). I just didn’t know how we were going to have what each of us needed. I was so desperate that all I could do was plead to God to help me. I didn’t expect pennies from heaven. Just some comfort!

We'd love to hear from you!
