Trust.... so easy to say, so hard to do. Lord, I trust you, then I pull it back and start to worry again. Currently going through one of the roughest times of my life. Everything is up in the air. I'm clinging to Jeremiah 29:11-13. Nights are the toughest as I lay and think and worry. I have to continually give it back to Him and know, not just in my head but also in my heart, my entire being, that He is in control and trust Him to do what is best for me. If it were just me, it wouldn't be so bad. But everyone is affected by my not working. How will we pay the mortgage? Kristen leaves for Eastern University at the end of August, we were supposed to take vacation, all of us, the middle of August and put money down on our flights and hotel. God I trust you, help me to relinquish control

Learning to Trust

I'm learning to trust Him and it isn't always easy! I'm waiting on Him as He has a job for me and I'm impatient and would like to know now. If I let myself think about all the circumstances of losing my job and the uncertainty of finding another, I could lose my mind! He has big plans for us this year! Greg has never been one to be sick or hurt in a big way......until this year. Greg stepped out with his own company this year, February 1st. He nearly cut his finger off and has had three surgeries on it since but it is doing really well. Then 2 weeks ago, Greg ends up in the hospital for 3 days with a fever of 103 and after much testing, the docs still don't know why. But, they found some abnormal findings in his chest X-ray so they did a CT scan with contrast which confirmed that there are abnormal findings and so on Friday, Greg had several biopsies taken from the lymph nodes in and around his lungs. We won't have those results until the end of this week. So, I'm clinging to these verses: Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my right hand. Jeremiah 29:11-13 "For I know the plans that I have for you", declares the Lord, plans to make you prosper and to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Learning to trust.....not so easy....

All Sorts of New

Once again , it's been too long between posts! Like the title states, we have all sorts of new in our lives! Kristen is gearing up to go too Eastern University at the end of August. She is going in as a Junior since she has so many credits. She will also be running cross country for EU. Greg resigned from his job at the end of January to start his own business. That has brought mostly ups but a few downs. He nearly cut his finger off in March, has had three surgeries on it and is still going for therapy. Then he became ill with 103 fever and was hospitalized for several days. Never found out what caused the fever but they found several small nodules in his lungs and enlarged lymph nodes near his trachea. He is scheduled for a biopsy tomorrow morning under general anesthesia so prayers would be appreciated. I'm currently unemployed and looking for a job in case management or insurance. My back just won't handle hard work.We also got a new puppy! Boomer, our 9 wk old golden retriever, has been quite the handful! Pray for God's guidance as we continue this new phase of our lives.
