So today our family finds ourselves jobless....with no prospects on the horizon.  So what are we gonna do?  We are going to trust Our Heavenly Father.  We are going to proclaim that He is GOOD even when our circumstances are not.  We are going to stand on the comforting fact that He is Sovereign and His plans are to prosper and not to harm us.  We are going to keep our eyes fixed on Him and know that He gives good gifts to His children.  We are going stand on His promise of protection and provision for His children who are seeking Him the best way we know how.  We are going to continually thank Him for the abundant blessings He has so graciously poured out on our family.  We will not falter.  We will not doubt.  We will not question.   We will not ask why us.  We will not let the enemy steal our joy. We are going to smile and laugh like never before as a family.  We are going to enjoy peanut butter and jelly like never before.  I will stand by and be more proud than ever of the precious man the Lord has given to me as a gift to share this life with.  We will allow the Lord to burn off whatever layers of the world are still on us.We are going to tell our children (in a very age appropriate, non threatening and non-scary way) about the situation so that we can allow Him to build their faith even at 3yr, 5yr, and 6yr. and they can see how He is good and faithful and even at their age, see His hand on our family.  They can have the opportunity to know that He hears their prayers and is attentive to them.  We will praise Him with every fiber of our being.  These are the things we will do in our strong moments.

And when we are in our weak moments...we will pour out our hearts to the One who can be trusted with our deepest, hardest, and most tender emotions...who can take when we are weak.  We will ask for fresh strength and He will freely give it.  When the very real feelings set in of "what is our next step?" and working on crunching numbers....we will bow our knees once again and ask for patience and the reassurance that He has the master plan and everything happens in His perfect timing.  We will ask for wisdom and He will give it.

I love this song by Hillsong...check it out on's called The Time has Come.  It is one of my favorites right now because it is so true of where our family is...the time has come for us to stand for all we believe in....where it's not just head knowledge but it's also deep heart knowledge...not just statements that come out of our mouths, but proclomations that we have lived.  Below are some of the lyrics..

The time has come
To stand for all we believe in
So I for one am gonna
Give my praise to You

Today today its all or nothing
All the way
The praise goes out to You
Yeah all the praise goes out to You
Today today I live for one thing
To give You praise
In everything I do
Yeah all the praise goes out to You

All we are is Yours
All we’re living for
Is all You are
Is all that You are Lord

He is so very good, and faithful, and trustworthy.  Praises to Him!!!!
And Blessings to you~
