For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
After 24 years with his company, and after a seriously rough few weeks. My dh was let go from his job.
I have such sadness, not because he was let go but more because this was originally my grandfathers business, and with dh working there.. it was still somehow a connection to my grandfather whose been gone for several years now.
I will miss the smell of the "shop" . I will miss seeing the equipment my grandfather started out with in his garage. I will miss the familiarity of it all. It's a closing chapter for me personally. I still miss my grandfather.
For my husband, I am happy. I can't imagine the pressure he felt in his life for him to come home from being fired and he physically looked relieved.
He said for the first time in years he can breathe! What a sense of burden he must have felt. My heart aches for him.
My husband has no fear about this. He is completely confident that the Lord will take care of us, and this.
My husband is usually a quiet man when it comes to his relationship with the Lord. But lately he has been very vocal about it. He has shared scriptures with me, he has shared his intimate feelings with me about his relationship with the Lord. And where he feels the Lord is directing this. Although he's not sure, he only knows that he will follow the Lords prompting. He compares himself to the apostles in the boat, doubting the Jesus can calm the seas.. except He know that Jesus has this for him!
That is amazing to me.
So I will follow his lead. I will try to not let my mind wander to places it shouldn't. I will not be fearful of the unknown. I will not worry about the future.
I will only rest in Jesus. And his plan for our family.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
From My Heart to Yours..
