For weeks, I’ve been trying to remember why August 28th sounded like a day I should remember. I kept thinking that I should remember why it’s so special. Then I realized that August 28, 2000 was an important day.
It was the day I started a new job. A new teacher at a new preschool.
But what I didn’t realize that August 28th, God not only led me to a new job, He led me to a new church, and through working at that church, I would begin a relationship with Him like I had never known.
I never would be the woman I am today if it were not for August 28, 2000. Taking a job that made me nervous. Taking an 8 month old with me to be cared for women I didn’t know. The first few months weren’t easy, but I stayed the course and stayed at that school until we moved to Michigan.
It was during those 9 years that I began to chose to go to church. Chose to read the Bible. Chose to give my life to Jesus. Chose to host small group at our home. Chose to invest in relationships with other believers. Chose to seek God’s will for my life, for my family. Chose to follow Jesus wherever He led.
And as I made those choices, God was faithful. He gave me more of Him.
And yesterday, I realized exactly why August 28th is so special.
My favorite Bible verse.
All these years, and I never put it all together.
One of the most pivotal days of my life, a day of promise. 8/28.
A day that God worked all things together for my good.
Like He always had, even if I didn’t realize it.
God is good. All the time.
And all the time, He is good.
