Roger lost his job due to the company being downsized. For months he searched, applied for jobs, prayed, asked others to pray, and trusted God. Roger and his wife Jerries emotions fluctuated though. They saw God provide for them in unexpected ways and experienced His grace, but sometimes they worried that a job would never come. For 15 long months, they waited.
Then Roger had three interviews with a company, and a week later the employment agency called and said, Have you heard the saying, Sometimes clouds have a silver lining? Well, youve got the job! Jerrie told me later, We wouldnt trade this hard experience for anything. It brought us closer together and closer to the Lord. Friends who had prayed rejoiced and gave thanks to God.
Paul wanted the Corinthian church to see the grace of God at work in his life, which could cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God (2 Cor. 4:15). His trials were so severe that he was hard pressed on every side, perplexed, persecuted, and struck down (vv.8-9). Yet he encouraged the people not to lose heart in troubles (v.16) but to trust God. During our difficulties, we can be drawn nearer to God and others, as Roger and Jerrie experienced, and praise will go to the Lord for His grace.
Read: 2 Corinthians 4:7-18
Good Evening, Ladies!
It’s gotten warmer here tonight, nice and toasty. Settling down to Chinese and a few DVD’s.
How is everyone tonight?
Great road trip, Galz! The fact that it’s near Albuquerque is a +! :)
The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is no longer in Old Town (the stinkin’ hippies hated it) and is on Eubank Blvd. north of Central Ave (Old Rt.66 of song and legend). The guides are mostly retired Sandia Labs personnel who are old nuke guys.
Anyone who needs info about Albuquerque, feel free to FReepmail me.
I can’t get you into the KUMSC (although it is very cool), I’d be glad to tell you about some of the cool stuff (unclassified) going on out at KAFB and Sandia.
It has been quite some time since I last visited ABQ. How is the place these days?
Evening, Kathy. How was the holiday?
Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...FR wouldn’t let lauren in at post time. Emails flying. All well that ends well.
How was your day at the office all by yourself? Car where you left it?
Good evening, Mayor...((HUGS))...and thanks for today’s sustenance for body and soul.
Evenin’ Sarge...((HUGS))...nice day off for me, but tomorrow will be very busy. Calm and 10 degrees outside. Have a great evening.
Thanks Kathy! I have spent a lot of time at Kirtland AFB.
