God's timing is perfect
Saturday, October 25, 2014
He is perfect in all His ways. But, this past month has given me a greater appreciation for God's timing in my own life.
This past month:
*I started the financial peace class which teaches you how to build an emergency fund, how to get out of debt, how to choose the right insurance, and how to build wealth.
*Was the "window" for signing up for insurance at my job.
*I broke a tooth and was told on the 14th that I might not live through the night.
*I've been forced to look at things that I would not normally even think about. Being a single woman with no children really requires that you take care of things in advance.
The first thing I did was to update my will.
Then I asked my apartment manager what the process is when a tenant dies. (My roommate is on disability and cannot afford the rent here.) She suggested that I put her on as an "occupant" rather than as a "renter" and that way she won't be financially responsible for the lease.
The next thing I will do is to contact the cemetery where my parents are buried to find out if my brother's assumption that there is room for 2 urns in their plots is correct.
Then I will be looking at the life insurance. My company's window for signing up for life insurance ends on the 31st; and THIS week's lesson in financial peace teaches you what type of insurance to get!
I have also determined that I need to go through everything I own, both in my apartment and the things I have stored at my brother's place to decide what to sell and what to keep. I need to build my emergency fund.
Does this sound grim? I used to think so. Now, I just find it a HUGE relief to have this stuff out of the way so that if God should call me home, my family won't be stuck trying to figure this stuff out for themselves. Once this stuff is out of the way (now that the doctor says that I will be well in 2 weeks), I can concentrate on LIFE! God's giving me another chance--yet again--to live, really live; fully alive in Him and I can't wait to get started!
