Do Not Worry!

~ Posted on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 6:08 AM ~

I came across this bible verse and it reminded me back the time I was deciding whether I should quit my IT job of 9 years in order to be a stay-at-home mother for my child (then about 2 months old). We were having trouble looking for a babysitter for him (one that can take care of him while I work from 9am to 6pm) and were pondering what other options we could have in order for our baby to be cared for properly.

Can't rely much on my MIL as she has (and still does) sleeping problems... she goes to bed at 7-8am and woke up at 12-2pm. By which time I'm already out at work and definitely can't leave my boy at home for her to care for.

And so we prayed to God, and decided to let Him decide. His will, His bill. At that time, we are relying on my hubby's IT business and of course I'm comfortable earning my own salary. To cut things short, decision was made, I quit and became a SAHM since then.

We were lucky to be staying with MIL (her house but hubby paid all the bills and groceries) and we have a car, a second-hand 11 years old car which hubby bought for very cheap price and it's all paid up, so not much commitment on our sides other than we must be frugal and think lots of times before deciding to spend any of our money. No overseas holidays until kiddos are old enough to appreciate and remember, even for family outing, we do it like once or twice a year locally and get the affordable holiday package and simply just budget and save.

Matthew 6:25 (NIV) “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Matthew 6:27 (NIV) Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

Matthew 6:32 (NIV) For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

To be honest, today, hubby's business is really picking up and we are looking for resource to help him in his company and kiddos wise, 2 now, with 3rd one on the way in September this year.

And a few weeks back, I checked back my personal bank accounts, the savings there is almost the same as what I had when I quit my job. Meaning, God provides enough for us to sustain through the years. God is good!

Congratulations on your family of FIVE! Smile


I have always been taught that God will give to us as we need and we shouldn't worry. My grandmother before she passed was very religious and never showed any worries.

I am always stressed or worrying about something. I came to realize that God always comes through when things get tough. BELIEVE!

I am always stressing about money, seems like everyday is a new stress!


I think if a mother can stay home with her children she should.It's better all around.


I'm so glad for your family that you have been able to stay home. I was a stay at home mom and loved every minute of it. It was definitely worth having one pay check. I wouldn't have done it any other way.


I'm so glad it worked out for your family. I think it makes a difference when someone else brings up your child. I stayed home and I loved every minute of it.

I'm Currently a SAHM, as well as being single.
I was in a serious car accident a few years ago which was caused by a teenager texting and driving, almost killed my son (then 9 months)
Once I got the money from that I put it all into the place where we currently are so I could get out of my parents, again.
It's a one bedroom with myself and my two kids..but we have to move soon due to no money, I've been on a waiting list for low income for THREE years now..I need a Miracle to happen..and I just don't see that happening.. I've been waiting and holding out for so many years, and now I have only a few short months until I need something to happen. D:
Anyone want to send me some good luck, please!?

Once and if I am able to move though I wont be able to be a SAHM... :/
As much as  I want to. my kids fathers aren't not in their lives, nor have never seen them so they are of no help to me financially.  


God is awesome and he shows the way to solution. He surely does provide. WE do have to do our partSmile

My adage has always been to not worry or stress about anything you cannot control. Let be, let God!


Amen! God is Good!
