Joy In The Journey

If you have been a faithful reader of our blog over the years you know Julie and I claim joy in all circumstances and have hopefully been a testimony to it in our posts. We have had some peaks and valleys over the years. It is a blessing to have Jesus to cling to in all of life's twists and turns. I can't imagine it any other way.

Friday morning I went into work like any normal day. I was greeted with the news that my position was being eliminated. I just listened with as much grace as I could muster up at the time. I got in my car and drove away. I had a peace over me. No doom. No gloom. No sickness in the pit of my stomach. A peace. It was so Jesus and I so loved Him for it. I felt like I was wrapped in plastic bubble wrap. Jesus' blankets are the best, I tell ya!

So, here I am embarking on a new journey into whatever God has for me and my little family. I am a working girl, so I am praying that my desires are His and hope to land the job that He wants for me in this next season of life.  I ask you to pray me through this journey if you will. Pray for our faith to remain strong as we wait and seek the next thing. Pray we don't grow weary in our faith and joy. We are not down in the dumps, scared or worried right now. I am a little mad at what it makes me look like in the professional community, but I know that is just the devil and so I pray that away throughout the day when that evil thought rears its ugly head. We trust it is part of a perfect plan.

I cried 2 times on Friday and haven't cried since. I can't cry about it. It just doesn't feel right. I love that. That is joy and confidence in God's bigger plan for my little family. Thank you in advance for praying for us. We covet the prayers more than you know.
