Don't get me wrong. We're not at code blue. We are paying our bills. There is food on the table. We own our cars and have greatly diminished our debt. But that big safety cushion? It is but an historical footnote. Because I think we paid General Electric's taxes with it this year. (But no, that couldn't be because General Electric owed no taxes this year. Silly me.)
So, while I am practicing deep breathing exercises, I choose to believe. I choose to doubt not. Why? Because God has never let me down. Never. As in never. And He is my rock. But...
Niggling in the back of my mind I am fighting the thought: "Well, there's always a first time." So I race to Google to find every scripture I can find on God's faithfulness and Hebrews 10:23 jumps at me: "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful."
In the meantime, that which doesn't kill us, comes very, very close to killing us.
