An overdue update…

I should have acknowledged God’s provisions and protection for us on here long ago and just haven’t. My husbands job was kept through the January 31st goal and beyond to even today.

He actually has visitors today and his job is still very much on the line until the end of July when the company would erase all records of coachings and a fresh start could begin with opportunities to transfer and such. He left for work this morning knowing company was there and both of us with a peace that might seem strange, we are welcoming whatever this visit brings. Even if it means he turns his keys in and is unemployed. God gave us this peace and it was with a smile and hug that I could honestly tell him before he left…¬† I don’t care what happens, as long as God is in control nothing will happen that He didn’t already have planned for us. ūüôā

So… I may update tomorrow or this evening with new news, it really won’t be good or bad, just new… and completely in God’s hands. I love this part of faith!

Psalm 33:20 (NIV) We wait in hope for the LORD, He is our help and our shield.

 

Have a blessed day! I know I am!!

A recent listen… Unglued, by Lysa Terkeurst

WOW! Have you read the new book Unglued? I must say it is spot on.

I honestly don’t have the time or energy to read many books so I have a membership through audible.com for audiobooks and have LOVED being able to listen to some great authors.

In her new release Unglued, Lysa¬†helps us take our labels off and address the roots of what “unglues” us. She shares personal experiences from her own life and how God has chiseled her through those times to Lord willing, be a better wife, mom, and woman.

I listened to her until 2am because as she is narrating her own book, she sounds like a friend in my living room. A friend that has made many of my same mistakes. I actually found myself asking God… how could you let her write “my” book? The answer was of course that He hasn’t chiseled¬†my form quite enough yet. I need this book and the practical, common sense advice that is both simple and profound. Why haven’t I already made road maps for responses? I learned in Bible school that you should make a decision about a decision before you have to make the decision. In other words, have a plan and know how to stand in that plan. Don’t come unglued by other people, things, or events, because there is already¬†a procedure in place to follow. WOW. A procedure that has Jesus as it’s core and foundation. How simple, how obvious, and yet how many times do I just lose it and blow my testimony, especially with my greatest ministry right now, my children. Too many times for sure.

I am breezing through this audio book for the first time because I love listening to her and find myself wanting more and more. I know that I will listen again and slow my pace to have a focused change of heart.

I highly recommend this book, and it really isn’t for only women, I have heard the men on K-LOVE radio talking about their own perspective changes that they have learned from this book.
