If you read here regularly, you know that my husband just began work as a roofing contractor .
Since this is a job that is completely based on commission, that means if no sales are made, no money comes in.
I won't lie. I would have felt much better about a salaried job that had insurance coverage and a vacation package, but at least this is an opportunity to bring in income.
I can't help thinking that God is still working out some kinks in my faith.
I have often pondered the faith of pilgrims or pioneers who would pack everything they had in a ship or covered wagon and head off to an unknown land. Who knew if they would encounter violent thunder storms (no weather radar to check), savage animals (no animal control to call), or starvation (no grocery store on every corner)? They actually had to live on faith.
I don't think many of us have ever had to live on faith to that level. I know I haven't.
I have a feeling this new job will teach me a few things about having faith in God's provision. Who knows if he will make any sales his first month? Or second? Or all through the winter?
One thing I do know. God will provide. I have faith.
