This Is Deep…

“NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”
Hebrews 11:1 AMPC

By memory, now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

I’m on my list day of Rear Guard, a devotional that can be found on the YouVersion app. Tonight or this morning, its 12:09 AM eastern time, tonight this devotional reading and the scripture with it had encouraged me. I’m in a place where I want to change jobs immediately. I miss being home. The truth is I’d rather work part time because I have spent so much, I have financial debt to pay. It sucks. Truly. I want to slow down, press pause on my life, but this I know I cannot do. Honestly though, if I shall work I’d really want it to be a job I can do from home. I’m ranting I think. Not in anger but in something else. Sadness?

Back to the devotional!

Rear Guard by Kennetra A. Bryant ED. D. By the Holy Spirit

I like to say by the Holy Spirit because it it is biblical work and it is truly from the bible, about God then I believe it must be influenced by the Holy Spirit.

In Need of Love

Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others]. [Prov. 10:12.]
1 Peter 4:8 AMPC

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8 KJV

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8 NIV


Proof that God loves me, knows about me, knows what I’m going through, knows what I need. With all the He knows, He supplies it and provides it.

I do have a job, yet I’ve found myself to not have as much money as I’ve had when I first started working. A few spending mistakes maybe. I pray I’ve learned my lesson. Did I purchase these things knowing and trusting that in the future, the days to come, that God will take care of me and provide for me to pay off these now debts? I think this was it.

This week I had to put money on my public transportation card. Other responsibilities were taken care of. And thanks be tinged I still was able to take some cash to put on this card.

Today, thinking about paying for the bus ride to work I was fishing for my transportation card. Without knowing it the friendly bus driver pointed to a transfer. 😂 He said that’s for you, while pointing to the already printed transfer ticket!

I’m filled with thankfulness because of this free ride. Thankfulness for the blessing of being given the transfer and not having to pay for the bus rides. Thankful to God and thankful to the bus driver.

Oh! And this bus driver

Well, I’ll just say he’s part of the neighborhood because he passes through the neighborhood I live in. This is a connection of some sort. Connection is good, it is good to connect with others. (Learning about connection while being an IIN student).

That’s all for now. This is more like a journal entry but I don’t mind sharing.
