beyond blessed

I was facing a severe financial crisis for a month since I stopped getting honor scholarships last march, which means I no longer get $500 wired to my account monthly. It was a huge lost for me indeed.
I am working part time in McDonalds...and even though I have worked my ass off, using every single free time I have to earn money, I could only earn 43,000yen out of 70,000 yen I need to live properly here. I was stressed up, worrying about how to survive the next days and paying the tuition fee without asking my parents's aid seemed to be impossible.
However, I always believe that God sent me here for some reasons, and as He has always guided me and provided my needs , I know he would never abandon me. And every time those financial worries bother my thoughts, God always guides me through my night devotion. He always says the right things to keep me stand still up to this very moment.
A few days ago, my worries stroke back and I started to think about how to get through the upcoming days, how to pay my tuition fee, how to pay this and that, but my night devotion reminded me:

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear .Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ?But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

It hit the right button and I felt so guilty for worrying instead of trusting my heavenly father and keeping my faith through prayers and devotions.
And God never forget to fulfill his word...
He made me succeed the first screenings for honor scholarship and the selection to be the system assistant in my uni..still a long way to go til I officially get those, but well......I am keeping my faith, and I believe God has made a beautiful plan for me, so even if I fail, I believe it happens for reasons, for the better. =)

And as God fulfills His word to answer my would He for your prayers as well.
Stop worrying, start trusting the Lord, and everything would be given to you.

and after all, remember, you never walk alone.
