Waiting...

So we are getting a lesson in waiting. Don't you hate it when things are going along quickly & things are changing & looking good & then suddenly everything stalls! Hubby had possible job change (still away from home, but closer to home)..now it's stalled & we don't even know if it will happen.

At first I got all tense & worried. What if it falls through, what if he loses current job, what if, what if, what if! The "what ifs" will get you every time. They start you in a downward spiral. First it's just a minor downer & then you get thinking worse & worse scenarios. Before you know it you are stressed beyond reason & your blood pressure is up & you're snapping at everyone. You've lost your trust! So I stopped, prayed & pulled out my Bible.

Philippians 4:6-7 says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer & petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

So, we are still waiting for this issue to be resolved. BUT I'm at peace! We are praying. We have our friends & family praying! I know that MY GOD will work this out for Good. He has all this in His control & even if we don't like the answer, He is in Control!!

I know waiting is hard, but trust God! He works all things out for Good! And He has plans for you & me! Plans to prosper you & not to harm you, plans to give you hope & a future!(Jeremiah 29:11)
