Change is happening. I will believe it is good.
If you’ve been following me on Facebook, you likely read the announcement about my Beloved’s job loss this week. It wasn’t too much of a surprise; we’d begun to suspect the possibility around the time the mill closed for a week off due to production issues. Beside that fact, I knew mill work has not been his passion.
But this job has been an amazing crucible for our individual refining. As he labored through long days of manual labor, I was prompted continually to pour out my heart to God in intercession for my husband.
I am still praying for him, that God would guide him with His wisdom, as the head of our family. I pray for the blessing of creativity in our hearts and lives, as we seek our Lord’s will for direction. We’ve had so many dreams, and shared so many passions over the years. How do we put them into practice?
All we know, is that it starts (and has started) with a step of faith.
We are rejoicing in God’s sovereignty; that His timing is perfect, and His plan is sure.
Over the years of writing this blog, it has been my heart to encourage families (wives, especially) during seasons of unemployment/economic difficulties. Many of you have faithfully shared your journeys with me in the past, and together we have brainstormed creative ways to bless our families during such seasons.
In the days to come, I will be giving you an inside look at some of the “ins & outs” of my home management, as I help my husband in this season. Leave a comment and let me know if you are going through this season, too.
