Blessings - God is so good!

God is so very good!

"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him" (Psalm 34:8).

On Friday, we decided to wait on the Lord. We're going to stay in Phoenix until we're offered a job. If the job offer is local, we'll be renewing our lease. If the job is out of state, we'll be moving immediately. Ever since deciding to wait for a direct answer from the Lord, we've been at peace. I feel peace for the first time since Jeff lost his job. And God has been blessing us greatly over the past few days. My contract job has provided a few hours of work, with more to come after another training call tomorrow. Jeff had a phone interview this morning and is waiting to hear back on several jobs. Our unemployment claim was finally approved, after much delay. The state authorized payment for the past four weeks of claims.

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:5, 6).

Praise the Lord!
