I really wasn’t sure I could do it. I knew I had to. We had commited to a path and we needed the money I was now making. But, every day I wondered how much longer it would be before I would loose it and quit. It took everything in me to keep my resolve. I knew I had to work at least 5-6 years and so I kept getting up. Because I really didn’t know what else to do.
Each morning after I got up I spent a few minutes with the Lord. I prayed, I shared my fears, my doubts, my disagreements, my exhaustion. And each morning I was strengthened for the task He had given me. Each morning I was renewed. It wasn’t perfect, it didn’t change the fact that I was working, that my family was struggling, that I really wanted to run away. Until one day I began to relax, to trust, to see the blessings instead of just the problems.
This is the place to come for a weekly devotion. A word of encouragement. A prayer. A place to be reminded that through this transition you are not alone.
And a place for prayer. Many people prayed for me as I went back to work and know that you are being prayed for too. This is the place to leave a prayer request in the comments if you feel comfortable or you can always send an email. I would love to pray specificly for you.
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Phil 4:13
