I really had good intentions on getting this ready and done yesterday. But sometimes life gets in the way. I apologize and will continue to participate and hopefully have this ready on time early next Wednesday.
Tuesday my sweet hubby found out he was "Let Go" from his job at FORD. Thankfully for us we were prepared mentally for this. But no one can prepare you for how you feel afterwards. I have been a bundle of mixed emotions..and do not as of yet quite know how to put them into words. Praise God we both are confident in God's Plan for us and know that whatever door he opens HIS best is always what He wants for us. The verses below are ones that God has given me to get me through this.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything with prayer and petition make your request known to God. And...the PEACE of God which passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ our Lord.
This may be yet a test of my faith in believing my Lord and that HE really IS in control. How often do we get comfortable in our cozy lives that we lead and then BAM!!! something really hits us an makes us realized...we really do not have the control we thought we had. God has been getting this through to me for over a year now. I KNOW he has the bigger picture in mind. Whatever that may bring he wants us to be obedient to Him and just believe.
One of the neatest things about my husbands letting go was his calm. He was told by the manager that had to give him the bad news that he could not believe how well he was taking this. Well I know why...because he has had a Peace that whatever God has planned...we would all be okay. That is the Faith we have in knowing and trusting our Lord. We can have God's Peace even when life and beyond us IS uncertain. And yet, for that today I PRAISE HIM.
Please know if you are in a situation like this or in need of prayer I WILL pray over it. Just leave me a comment and when I read it I will pray for you. God Bless you this day.
Blessings in our All Knowing GOD...Lorena
