Good News!

D & I have been keeping something close to the vest for months. We haven't told anyone what was going on with his job. But the company he has worked for for over 5 years lost their contract with the hotel. We didn't know what was going to happen, but we did know that all we could do was pray fervently. I know people have mentioned seeing a growth spiritually in us & it's because of times when you have to lean not on our own understanding, but completely submit to trusting fully in our loving Jesus, that growth can take place if we allow it to do so. Because of this trusting there were some what the world would call "coincidences" that gave D an upper hand in the situation, to get in front of what was about to happen. And we can not even begin to express our overwhelming joy today, to say that the new company that is taking over, gave D an offer to stay on. This new company is world wide & this is a major step up in his career. With endless opportunities! The things that D & I have experienced as a couple through this has been incredibly powerful! And if you are reading this, I just want to say...If you are struggling, depressed, worried, consumed with anxiety, no matter what it may be, whatever you are walking through....Don't stop trusting. Even when you want to give up, just cling to His promises. He is faithful! Life stinks sometimes, but He is still faithful! The quote by the precious Elisabeth Eliott that has gotten us through all of this has been "Don't dig up in doubt, what you planted in faith."
If there were a jumping up & down shouting the name of Jesus emoji, I would be using it right now!
Take time to listen to the lyrics of this song....Per D's request!
