God is so good! I have been trying to have peace over this situation with my previous employer and I keep leaving it in God's hands only to take it back again. I received a call the other night from the job I interviewed for 2 wks ago. I am one of their top choices! I completed Step 2 of the process yesterday. Praying that He will work this out as I really would love this job, but only if it is His will and where He wants me to be. I have been doing my Bible study in Isaiah. I read this , Isaiah 43:1 But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel, Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! Isn't that awesome?! Our God, Creator, Ruler of the universe cares enough to call me by name! He desires a relationship with me and wants to show me how His plan is for my greatest blessing!Family update: God is giving Greg work on a week to week basis. I know He will meet our needs. Josh is doing well, working a lot. Kristen is loving college and I see real changes in her walk with the Lord! Me? Well, to be continued...!

That was the title of today's study that I am currently doing. It is a study on the book of Isaiah called Trusting God in Troubled Times. I read two verses that grabbed me this morning, Isaiah 30:15 & 18 vs 15 says:For thus the Lord God,the Holy One of Israel, has said, In repentance and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength. vs 18:Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him. Isn't it amazing? Repentance AND rest, quietness AND trust. He LONGS to be gracious to us, to have compassion on us if we just repent, rest, be quiet and trust. I should be getting an answer this week as to whether I will be offered the case management job. The interview was long but went very well. I am really interested and I think it would be a great change and a good fit with where I am at in my life.I am also still waiting to tie up a more important loose end. More on that later. I'm trusting you, Lord!

I don't know if that is a word, but to me it describes God! I was very nervous regarding my unemployment hearing yesterday. When I opened Facebook, God spoke to me, right away. Psalm 118:6 The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me? I remained nervous but felt my confidence in Him. Anyway, my previous employer did not show up to the hearing even they were the ones appealing my unemployment. Thank you Jesus! I have an interview this Friday which I am so looking forward to. Greg's work remains steady, thank you Jesus, and as my brother, Sean said, God is really giving us our DAILY bread. Not our monthly or yearly, but our daily bread, learning to trust Him for our day to day needs. God is good all the time!
