I am thankful for God's provisions and plans. God knows what our needs are and it is awesome to have my eyes open and see it work.
When we left for our mission trip hubby's work was voting on a new contract. We have found out we are basically getting no raise for the next 4 years but a pay cut. Now my first response was how are we going to live with gas, heating and food prices going up. Then I came to my senses and gave it all over to God. I started giving Him praise for everything I use and buy and trust Him to meet the needs of our family (we have 2 in college). Then a week later I find out I will not have my job this fall. Ouch. God what are you doing here? But I will say hubby and I never stressed about it. I am looking. We even turned one job down for me that would be more money but felt God say "no not now, trust me." That was hard to do. But I am trusting God and not stressing out over it. I have a true peace.
What are we seeing in all this. We are seeing less money coming in but our savings growing by a couple of dollars each week. We are seeing growth in our knowledge and faith in Christ. We are seeing peace in each other.
I am thankful for God's provision and plan.
