Of course this was Canada...and not a government audit. No, this was a company auditor flying all the way from Toronto to go through everything with a fine tooth comb.
Over the next few weeks, the burning sensation in my stomach got worse with each email from the auditor. I took over the job with all of the paperwork handed to me in boxes. I did not even know what was in half of them.
Finally, the fateful day arrived.....
and it wasn't so bad!
After 3 days and many hours the auditor filled me in on areas needing improved and nothing that I worried about came to pass.
It was actually fun. There was a word I never expected to use when in the midst of an audit.
Matthew 6:34, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:27, "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"
In the end, I worried for nothing. I wasted time and energy projecting what might happen instead of praying and trusting God.
I'd like to say it won't happen again.....
I don't think I can. However, I can say I will be seeking God for strength in this area. I covet your prayers.
