Be Still~

"Be still and know that I am God"~ tonight as I am laying here with bronchitis this has been going through my head.  I have a lot of questions lately....but I know when I go through these struggles of faith; I simply start praying...crying out to my Lord.  When I see no way out I know that He has a way~ that He will come through and provide a means of relief for our family.  Tomorrow I go for an interview at a preschool...very excited as I love working with little ones~  I continue to work at church but the hours I need are simply not I will continue to look and apply for work.  Tom continues his search and continues to paint.  He spoke with the unemployment office the other day and it will be five to six weeks before he receives a check so I am asking the Lord for a miracle of provision.  I need to start packing again as I had stopped with all that has gone on......I suppose I need to pack and trust in faith that God has a home for our family.  Faith is quite a journey.  There are some days I must be honest when I wake and I say...I want my life back.  My comfortable life~ where I did not have these day to day worries of provision for our family....I have asked the Lord why?  and when I get an answer I promise I will share it~ but for now I rise each morning and simply pray for a host of many things and plead for my children and husband ....for strength and peace for this point in our lives~

Oh Vikki, I hope and pray you will get the job working with the small children. It will be so good for you to have another job working more hours. It's obvious you love the work, and what a blessing for these children to have a strong Christian woman guiding their little lives in the right direction.

You and your family are in my prayers each and every day!!!
Love and big hugs to you!

Vikki, although scripture promises God will not give us more than we can endure, it must seem at times like this the promise is hard to believe.Trust me, God, He will and does provide in His time, in His ways, in His wisdom. My prayer for you all is that you remain steadfast in your trust and faith while you await His answers.I will pray for you.

Can you send me your snail mail address? I will send you some encouraging words from people who have been through so much and tell of God's provision in the face of times that can easily cause despair and lack of faith.
