On my mind...

Hi peeps! I just wanted to stop in! I've got all kinds of stuff going on in my head that I want to blog about. Problem is, I can't get any of it to make sense! I start writing and then just get frustrated. Does anyone ever have that problem?? God has done so much in my life over the past month and a half. I'm learning how to trust Him more. I'm learning that He is my satisfaction. I'm learning that my merit comes from Him. I'm learning to live intentionally and more purposefully... purposefully living to bring Him glory in every step that I make. Things right now aren't easy breezy. It's hard. We will be living with the repercussions of the Hubs losing his job for a while... Not just financially but also just dealing with the feelings and emotions that go along with it. People lose their jobs and the financial strain is hard. We were hurt and that's been especially hard to deal with. I find that the moment I think I'm getting over it, that's the moment that something else happens which is a direct result from the whole ordeal. I won't go into detail on this blog for various reasons but I open the door to anyone who wants to talk about it. I'm learning to trust in God to take care of our reputations. I pray we live in such a way that will prove what we are about and that is glorifying God. He is what matters. May he be honored through every circumstance and situation that our family goes through whether good or bad.

I know you guys are still struggling with this situation and you are still in my prayers. I must say that as I've suffered with you through this in my own little way, I can see how I've grown in the grace of God. I feel like our friendship is stronger, we've all found comfort in one another and I feel like at least my family’s "involvement" in the entire situation was not chance, but the working out of God's plan and His sovereignty in all of our lives. I am thankful that He is the source of my strength. I know I could not have peace with this situation on my own, but that it comes from Him alone. I love you guys and I’m thankful for your family, your friendship, your testimony, and the love you have for one another and our God.
