In the mid 1970’s, I was doing pretty well in my career in the NatWest bank, even though I really didn’t like the job. I DID like the salary, the ridiculously subsidised mortgage (2 1/2% in an era when normal mortgages were 14%+ -hard to believe today, huh?).
18th January 1979: another of my ‘birthdays!’ What birthday is this one? Well, I’d ‘celebrated’ 9+ years with one of the (then) ‘big four’ banks, and after fighting God for 5 years as he wanted me to leave, and I didn’t. God wanted me in full-time ministry, which I wanted, but was terrified of losing salary and perks….
Thank you, Lord, that every promise you’ve made is yes and amen through Christ Jesus (Col 1:20), and this unknown, unqualified, unskilled man has seen your provision for 39 years.I guess it makes it my ruby wedding to God’s promises next year? 🙂
