As you all know from my last post, I’m struggling just to make it through the day without back pain. Today is the first day I can get up and support the weight of my head without holding back a scream. Each day I’ve been progressively better, however I haven’t been able to make any sales calls to set up appointments.
Here’s where the cool part really kicks in. As you know from my last Faithful Friday entry, I was really stressed that I wouldn’t be able to hold my end up for the month. I was stressed b/c I didn’t think my straight commission job would provide any stable income this time around. Now that I’ve been laid up for practically a week, that situation could look even more grim to an outsider.
HOWEVER….I didn’t worry one bit. Some may attribute that to the muscle relaxers and yes those did help! But I knew all week that God would still provide. Yesterday I had 2 colleagues call me with 2 very good leads to follow up on, which I ended up setting 1 appointment for next week. (Now that’s just pray I can drive next week…I still can’t move my head from side to side.)
Part 2 of to this story is my boss. He called me to check up on me. He proceeded to tell me that he set up 9 appointments for me next week. He knew I wouldn’t be able to call anyone on the phone to set up appointments – so he did it for me! My boss even offered to take me to all my appointments if I can’t drive by that time.
Is God good or what? Not only is He constantly providing for me, but he also gives me a Christian boss who really cares about my wellbeing–physically and financially!
I may or may not get anything out of these appointments, but just knowing God has given me a way is so endearing. He’s given me the resources, now it’s up to me to make it happen.
***Post Note: My boss also offered a free trip to me at the end of the month, all expenses paid, to Savannah, GA. It’s going to be 4 days of relaxing with just a little work mixed in. I’m looking forward to it! Again…another thanks to God for an extra surprise just for me!
