Jehovah Jireh

I requested prayer over a year ago for my husband who was experiencing so much stress in his job. We prayed and prayed and we asked for deliverance. We asked family to pray and even blogger friends to pray!

God has answered 'above what we could ask or think!' He received word this week that he was chosen as Supervisor of Technology in another school district. God has blessed him for his diligence. While he was walking through his deep waters, he struggled with anger, but finally gave that to the Lord for Him to walk things for His good. And he did!

Why do doubt? Why do we question? Doesn't God count the hairs on our head? Does he see the sparrow fall? We can say beyond the shadow of a doubt, "I know my God cares for me!"

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today :) I am in the same stage of life with my son. He is 18 years old and a senior in high school. I would love to say that we are getting this thing right, but with him being the first born, so much seems to be trial and error. We are doing a lot of praying and counseling. I loved what you said about words of encouragement. I know that is so true!
Hope you stop by again.

Thanks, Lynn. I'm not sure if this is crazy, but I felt God nudging me to write a book today about this very thing. "How to Let Them Go Without Losing It"

We read books when we are pregnant to prepare for their arrival, why not be prepared for when they leave the nest? This process really snuck up on me, that's for sure. I want to do things so differently with my daughter.

He is our first born as well and I grieve the mistakes I have made. But I am trusting the Lord that He can redeem all things.
Blessings,
Barb

I am sooo very glad that everything worked out for your husband regarding his job, God is great!! Right now we are struggling with some issues, it's just that I don't really know if I am praying for the right thing. What I mean is My husband has been at his job for the last 7 years which is a big blessing, overall he gets along good with his boss and co-workers, but the strange this happens when lunch time comes around he is never included and he know it is coming from his boss, so he feels left out allot which affects him. He did address it the best he could things got a little better but then went back to the same. When it comes to the big things at his work his boss always has his back. So I got to think that he cares for him or he would not be there right? I would love to know from you your thought about this, specifically with how can I be supportive with him when he tells me about him being excluded, because you know it really affects me inside my stomach get sick, I get angry and very frustrated with the situation. I am also a paralegal and have a very strong personality and address all conflicts head on, he does not and being a men that works in an office with other men in the construction field they do not believe in communication much. SO I pray very much for him and me so that God helps me but I also believe God puts good people as yourself in our paths for support and friendship. I am one who give out great advise and I have help other with their conflicts but seem to find myself stuck with these unhealthy emotions when it comes to my husband's job.
Thanks for hearing me out and for your God send advise.
