When people ask me how I am dealing with all of this, my response has often been from Job 1:21 "The gave, and the has taken away; blessed be the name of the .” I'm not bitter about it, as it is true that everything I have (or had) really belongs to God and is used for His purpose. Through this time of difficulty, I believe my relationship with God has grown stronger as He is providing for everything that I need. A very good friend has taken me into her home and is letting me stay for as long as I need to find a new job. Other friends have treated me to meals and other outings. I have some money in savings to pay some bills and other needs. I was able to refill all of my prescriptions for the next few months using my FSA and did not have to pay out of pocket. The loan officer for the new home is a believer and praying for me to find a new job soon. She is giving me more time to find a job so I can still get the house.
I do not understand why all of this is happening to me, but I know that God is carrying me through this. He is my helper and is always faithful to care for His children. This card uses verses from Psalm 121. I wish I had a stamp that had the entire chapter as it is one of the many reminders that God is always with me and never fails to help me.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all evil;
He will keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
