He Knows My Path

Last month our family received unexpected blessings.  I took those blessings and added to our pantry and our freezer.  I bought things I knew I could use for meals so I would always have something on hand and not have the excuse of eating out or having my husband pick something up on his way home from work.

Little did I know then that those blessings would be something that would turn into a bigger blessing.  You see, I lost my job yesterday.  I saw the signs that it was coming, so I wasn't in complete shock.

I can honestly say that if this would have happened a year ago, I would have been distraught.  I wouldn't have been prepared.  I would be full of fear.  But since I have put my whole life, children, home, needs, everything in Jesus, I know that we will be taken care of.

I can take this time to focus more on Him.  I can take this time to focus more on my husband.  I can take this time to focus more on my children.  I can take this time to be what He has planned for me to be.

This is a new season.  A season that I know we will get through as a family because our Heavenly Father will be taking care of us and all of our needs.

I am thankful for the blessings we received last month.  I am thankful that I did not waste those blessings on wants, but instead prepared for the possibility of losing my job.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  Proverbs 3:5-6

I love that verse.  I try to live by it every day.  I don't succeed every day, but I try.  I have to put my trust in Him.  He knows my path already, so why wouldn't I.
