God is Faithful.....

....even when we're not.

Just to refresh your memory, in September I wrote the following blog entry: The Dream and I knew that God wanted me to stop worrying and be where I was for that time in my life.  But I'm stubborn and hard headed (I'm really relating to Jonah from the Bible lately).  For some reason I may never understand, my work at my former job was not finished. I'm referring to my God work, not the work I was being paid for.  So last Friday I received an email from my former boss there.  She needed me to help her with a project I had worked on while I was there.  
The timing is so God.  Just before I spoke with her yesterday, I received a meeting on my calendar for today.  It was billed as an account review but I knew it was really a layoff meeting.
Today's meeting was what I believed, I was let go effective immediately.  I followed up with my former boss and she was cleared to bring me back.  We talked a little, I told her the situation and that I was officially out of work.  She said she'd call me on Friday once she understood the budget and we could make some plans.
Not even an hour later she called and it seems another person she works with also needs some help, I go in on Thursday for a meeting with both of them.
I have always said God works in mysterious ways and I'll never understand why he blesses me so, but he does and it surprises me every single time.
I posted the below Bible verses before.  I post them again.  Mostly to remind myself to follow his plan for my life.  He is amazing and faithful and wonderful and always there even when I don't listen to him!

11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
