A sense of peace

Im not sure if Ive just grown in my faith finally or God is just working differently in my life today but its a welcome change.

We got news today that andrews 2nd job, his college teaching parttime, is going to be cut dramatically for the fall of 07 and spring of 08. He may still pick up some misc courses here or there to teach, so we might have a bit of income from that. Previously news like this would have sent me into a tailspin, after all thats a significant part of our income that we do rely on, but today its different. I have a sense of peace that I cant explain. Maybe its that Im older and somewhat wiser ( i can hear all of you laughing now). Maybe its that Im finally letting Gods truth sink into my heart. He always has provided in the past and I have no doubt he will in the future.

What that means exactly dont know. Im thankful he brought us to the place of starting to be prepared even before we got this news. We really have commited to taking this year to pay down debts and bring our financial house back in order. So that means we may not make it home this summer or xmas to visit family . Or it might mean that we put off a few things we wanted to purchase, thats okay ... God will continue to be alongside us all the way!


God is good ... all the time
