We are at a time in our lives that we had hoped would be less stressful, more relaxing, and financially more settled. Unfortunately, that's not the way our lives are going. After 25 years of dedication, faithfullness and going waaaaaayyy above and beyond the call of duty, my husband became semi-retired. He and his employer sat down and worked out a plan that would allow him to return to work on a part time basis. They worked out the pay scale, insurance details, etc. "Great!!!!!" , I thought, "We'll have more time to visit family, work around the house and relax!". Well, you guessed it......things are not working out as planned. Between broken agreements, shrinking paychecks, increasing bills and financial stresses, ...let's just say I was (and still am a little) having a hard time trusting that God's gonna get us through.
Here's where the Veggie's come in.. I'm sitting in my living room singing along with the show when it suddenly hits me what I'm singing
"God is bigger than the boogie man....", and the tears start. The boogie man can seem really huge! But God is huge-r. I might not like the situation we're in, I might not like what God's going to take us through, it might be really painful and more than likely my trust will waiver, but He won't waiver! I remember giving this advice and cousel to my kids....'sometimes going through something is painful but it's always better on the other side.' Yeah, I know, I should practice what I preach. He never said we'd never have tough times, but He's always brought us through.
So, dear friends, please pray for this self admitted 'bad-truster'. Because even though my head knows "....He's watchin' out for you and me...." my heart still needs to be reminded to "Be still, and know that I am God."
