Timely Encouragement

I've been struggling to remain positive this week. I know that God provides and that I shouldn't worry. The Bible says that I am not to worry about tomorrow. But I still worry that my hubby won't be able to find a job in time for next month's bill payments. We're going to wipe out our checking and savings in about five weeks.

I'm trying to find work as well. My contract job promises work but they are slow to assign. I'm trying to find something to fill in the gaps in work.

Today we received good news, evidence that God does provide and that things will work out. My husband's request for student loan payment deferment was approved until July. That provides a bit more breathing room ($150/month).

I have to remind myself of this verse:

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33).

My goodness, that is very tough on you both. Not only will I pray for you but also for your relationship because sometimes when things get tough financially they can affect the relationships too.

God forbid.

However, well done loosing 3 lbs! That really is something!

God continue to bless and guide you both.

Thanks Ruth. :) Hubby and I are doing pretty well, relationship-wise. It's stressful, but we pray together.
