A wise pastor once preached a sermon on the very topic of how our lives can change in just a week. This pastor was the husband of my good friend Cheryl that went to be with the Lord unexpectedly last October. My pastor friend lived those words he spoke to the fullest that week.
The week before last I lost a friend to cancer. He was only 35 years old and leaves behind a beautiful young wife and a precious 2 year old boy. That week changed the course of their lives forever.
This past week out of the blue the government decided to shut down my husbands whole department and lay everyone off. So in less then 2 weeks, my husband won’t have a job.
So those are the bad things. Now let’s look at the good.
We are in a very humbling position which causes us to rely FULLY on the Lord. We’ve been here before and we’ve seen Him work miraculously through it all.
Since hearing of the lay off our friends have been so wonderful as to inquire about our needs. They are offering whatever they can to help us. That alone warms my heart and gives me such peace.
It’s an unseen adventure waiting to start. We are definitely praying about what road to pursue. We’ve always wanted to be self sufficient so we are brain storming about what we could do there. We have some ideas but aren’t 100% sure yet. My hubby is looking to see what jobs are available as well. We figure we need to walk in faith towards each door and see which one swings open and which ones remain closed. But the key is to start walking. I am hoping that this adventure doesn’t involve extremely high mountains to climb. *wink*
We’ll be clinging to this verse while we travel this road.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
So as the road of uncertainty lies ahead of us, we walk in confidence that the Lord shall supply all our needs according to His riches in glory.
How can I pray for you today?
