I'm Here!!!!!

Sorry that I have not posted in a bit but things here have been a bit overwhelming.  My CFS seems to be acting up with the stress.  You see, my husband has lost his job and things are not looking good right now.  I knew that this month was going to be hard but it really has gotten to me in last few days; him too.   What we really need is for him to find a good job.  He has a pea-size job that is bringing in some money just not enough.  I have never been a crier but I see myself turning into one right before my eyes.  I really need some prayer right now and to pray myself.  Believe me when I say I have been praying and God has been working but it's getting closer and closer to the bottom and I will admit-I'm scared.  I'm scared that we may lose a car.  I'm scared that my husband may lose his will to fight.  My faith is really being tested and I need some warriors that will help keep my arms lifted in the battle.  Please pray for us.  Thank you my friend.

My prayers are with you. Here is were the rubber meets the highway. I too have been out of work for quite some time. But the antidote to worry is Phil 4:6. anything less is sin. We are human and will doubt now and then, worry, fear, tears are sin.

The only God pledged to us was food, clothing, and shelter. All the rest is just stuff. We will loose our house from this layoff and unemployment but we have each other. The house is stuff sticks and stones.

Trust God not your idea of God. He never pledged a car, furniture, etc. But he did pledge and promise food, clothes, and shelter. So when we loose our home of six years God will provide shelter.

Seek Him and his righteousness, he will take care of you, far better than you can take care you.

I shall pray for you

@ Gregg, Thanks for the reminder. It was one of those moments, ya know. We already have a condo in foreclosure and I have never been one to want a lot of stuff but today was just an overwhelming day. God has provided for us in the past and He will conitinue to provide. A car is just a car. God is so good to us!

@ Karey, thanks for reminding me that I am loved. Sometimes I forget in the midst of the trial.

I will absolutely be praying for you and your family Keena. Of course this is a stressful time but all will work together for God's good and His glory! We have an amazing God and He never changes!

Blessings to you and keep us posted.

will pray for you Keena. I am always reminded that God does say he knows our needs and will provide for us (of course I always tell people what God feels are our needs and what we feel are out needs could be quite different) but I also remind myself with things that God is in control, he knew this would happen. He is walking right alongside of you; just keep trusting in him!

I will pray for you and your husband. I hope to encourage you. My husband has been unemployed now going on two years. Some weeks, we hardly have enough money to feed our four children, let alone put gas in the car. And I don't share this to make you sad, but we did lose our home last year. Many things led up to it, but the unemployment was the last starw. But God has been with us all the way. I cannot tell you of his faithfulness. He is good. He will not leave you nor forsake you during this time. May His peace surround you and may your husband find that perfect job!

There are a few posts on my blog about that season in my life, last July-September, if you want to read to be encouraged.

I will send positive energy your way, although my significant other and I have been unemployed for going on two years now, so maybe you might not want our energy ;-) My thoughts are with you, good luck.

Keena said...

Thx everyone....I appreciate your kind words.... God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

Hey Keena, nothing stays the same forever, only God. You will be amazed at how resilient you can be. I didn't even have a pea sized job and yet somehow I went for 3 years with no work and survived. Read 1 Kings chapter 17 and remind the Lord of how he looked after the widow and how you need his care right now. Ask in the name of Jesus.
There is much I could say to you about getting through this but what you really need is to hear from God that he is listening. Go for a walk or a drive alone and pour out your heart before the Lord, take your favourite bible with you and ask him all the questions that are on your heart, ask him to speak to you through his word and then open your bible wherever it opens and read what the Lord has to say. Do this a number of times and you will begin to see a thread of wisdom that will speak to your heart. And then trust Him. I will say a prayer for you all the same. Blessings and peace to both of you, love Geoff.

Hard times can be scary. I will certainly pray for you and your beloved. May your knowledge of Him and your faith in Him increase and strengthen you like never before!
Psalm 37:25

Blessings!
