God is Good...

I have been a little stressed lately when it comes to money, but who isn't these days?!

I was just able to finally file a claim on the fraudulent charges today (I had to wait for them to clear). The lady informed me that I will be reimbursed in 10 business days if the results of the investigation prove the charges to be fraudulent. Yikes. That means that my account is sitting in the negatives for another 2 weeks or so. I have 2 credit card payments coming up in about 3 weeks, so if there is any delay in this, I am screwed.

Also, I have not been able to start work as early as I had hoped. There was confusion on my start date, and they told me that I wouldn't be able to start until September. Yikes. I saved enough money to last me through last quarter so that I didn't have to work, and my tax refund is helping right now... but it would never last me 6 months.

Luckily, I was finally able to convince them to move my start date up a little bit. I got it to the beginning on July. It is still a ways away, but it is much better than September.

I really just starting praying that God would take care of me and that I would make it through this financial hardship without having to turn to my parents or to myMr. I have just put my faith in Him, and about 5 minutes ago, it paid off!!!

I just got a phone call from a man at my company (a scary man at that). He said that there is the opportunity to move my start date up a little bit, if I was interested. Me, interested?! HELL YES!!! I nearly screamed on the phone, I was so excited. He told me that someone will be calling me on Thursday or Friday, and they will be setting up a meeting to be discussing the work that I would be doing. If I am interested, then they will set up a start date.

Get this, the start date would be in about a week or so depending on when we set up our meeting!!!! I could not believe it! God has definitely answered my prayers.

Wedding plans will be moving forward, and I won't have to ask anyone for any money!!! I feel so blessed right now. Amazing.

Have you felt that God is taking care of you lately?

Take care until next time,

What a relief! I am sure that hearing that news knocked your stress level down a bit.

Hopefully everything goes smoothly with the fraud investigation so they can get your account reimbursed as quickly as possible!
