I have had a rough patch here lately and the Lord has been really placing it on my heart to share about it with you all today. So when he prompts I try and obey.
My hubby and I are now in the 8th month of his being let go from FORD Motor Company. Yes, we are one of those stats that you all here about on the news with what is going on economically, especially here in Michigan...it is such a gloomy time right now in that sense. Thankfully he got a good severance and we have been able to continue to live while he looks for work. I have known all along it's IN Gods very capable hands and feel when HIS timing is right he will open the doors needed for the PERFECT job. We both are willing to relocate if that is his Will. But it's the waiting....
Now...it all began to hit me hard though, when a couple of weeks ago when the reality hit that my daughters going to be a Senior this upcoming year. It Really set in when her school called asking us if she was coming back and were we going to enroll her. You see, we have been so blessed to be able to have her attend a local Christian school...and now with no work or funds coming in, the possiblility of her not finishing her senior year with her friends just about did me in. It has just broken my heart! And I honestly must admit and am dealing with being angry at GOD over all of this. I was coping pretty good until all of this happened.
We are in the process of doing some things that may give us assistance, but I NEVER thought I'd be in this situation..ever! It has been very humbling and has tested my faith to limits unknown, which I am not sure I am fully where I should be with all of this yet. With so many wonderful bloggers who care, I'd so appreciate your prayers for my family at this time over where GOD is leading and really to see a miracle happen for us in these areas.
We do live day by day, but my sweet hubs is getting so discouraged spending hours each day on the web and putting out resumes, only to never hear anything back. And I care so deeply for him and am so sensitive to his moods that it is getting to me as well. It may mean I have to go back to work outside of our home, which due to physical things going on my body may make it very difficult. But if this is what GOD wants he will give me to the strength to do it. I do know that with sharing often times comes release.
I want to assure you GOD has been so faithful to me through the years and I HAVE seen his Hand upon my life and my marriage...this is just a rough patch. I so look forward to the day I can look back on this and really see what HE was doing. As we know, it is IN the waiting that it is the hardest for us...if we can perservere through it, we receive the blessing and see how his hand was at work.
Thanks for allowing me to share this....
Isn't this the most WONDERFUL and darling card ever! Deb of Garage Sale Gal sent this to me. Deb you are such a blessing. This came at just the right time. I had just gotten a call back from the dr's that I needed to have further testing after my Mamm showed something, last week. And it just encouraged and blessed me more than you will ever know. PTL my testing came back clear and I am good for another year!
I have so often shared that GOD uses song in my life to get me through. I sang in a choir for Palm Sunday and this song, *I Will Rise*, by Chris Tomlin was a new one we sang and I just LOVE the song and words. I hope you enjoy...I will also link to the words.
