I know that He is doing something whether to chastise and perfect or to teach me to trust in Him alone. I don't know just what He is doing but I have faith that what He is doing is for good. It's still hard going through it though
Hang in there. I had/have gone through some tough times the past 6 years, all could have been avoided if I had some self control. But in 2009 it was the worst in my adult life, laid off, 2 months searching, moved with family to another state for a contract that was then cut short. Interview after interview was a closed door - even a good Christian brother, with whom I wept over the phone, could not offer me at that time. I realized then that God was stripping everything material away from me. I called on His name, He who remains Faithful and True, and He had a better plan. Now that plan moved me back to where I had been living and desired to live, but it only lasted 2 1/2 years. February I got laid off again. But you know what - this time I had my faith ready. I trusted God had me in His hand. And He again opened a door.
I have long since learned that God IS faithful. When you trust Him - He WILL lead you to where you should be. But I wink at the phrase ‘he has something better for you’ - because HIS better isn’t always MY better. My better would be nice house, comfortable salary, new car, spending money, good health insurance, etc.
So I take each day now as thankful for what I have, what I gain, and what way I can be generous.
Cowman when one door closes another one opens. And God can tell you just what you need to do. He is a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1). You can ask for divine instructios and He will answer. God Bless!
