Well...just another Thursday here in the Goedmakers household...Tom left today for his business trip and the kids and I are not thrilled about it but it may be something that is really good for him and his work....so I hope and pray that all goes well. It has been such a drastic change for our working for ourselves! Yes, we were struggling along but it is hard for me to see him having to answer to people who are less qualified and have less experience then him. I know that God is in control...and I need to constantly be reminding myself of that fact. We need to stay in the word and trust that the Lord will see us through this very trying and difficult time. I was reading this morning in Ephesians 3:16-21
I pray that form His glorious unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all the glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! AMEN.
This is just what I needed today to be reminded of.....Times are hard and we will struggle but no matter what ......I am blessed! I am blessed with a husband I love and children that are healthy and for the most part happy....Yes, things could be better but for today....we have a comfortable home, good food and friends that are a constant encouragment to me.
