Taking on Bigger and Better Challenges for my Familia
This blog post was originally written in 2008. As I read through it, for the first time in a very long time, I can see how far we’ve come and how much things have changed, for my familia. I’ve been blessed time and time again these past eight years. My husband has been working, full time, as a regular employee at the same job below. I don’t remember why I wrote this, or what was the thing I was so unsure of, but I do know this:
God took care of it. He always has and he always will!
My life, 8 years ago…
It has come down to this…. we gotta do, what we gotta do.
Our economic situation doesn’t seem to be improving at all. On Monday, my husband will start his contract break, which means he got unwanted days off. We have been searching for a resolution for a while and what we said we needed in order to put our plans into work, has come true.
And now we are like, okay? What do we do now?
It’s funny how we ask God to put things into place and when he does, it’s like, well??? Um???
I hate when I do that. I prayed so much for this “thing” to happen, and now that it’s there, we are unsure whether or not to take it. How dumb, huh?
I mean, why did I pray for it then? Why did I ask people to pray for it?
It says in the bible to ask and you shall receive. I asked and received and now do I dare ask God to, eh… never mind? Can my excuse for us not doing what we gotta do, be more of a “well not now, maybe later” kinda thing?
I am so confused. Why??? It’s just the first initial step of tearing off the band aid with one pull. Jumping off the tall diving board for the first time. I feel all these emotions and I don’t know what to do with them. I feel excitement, fear, peace, restlessness. At the same time the ands, ifs and buts are racing around in my mind and it’s driving me crazy.
I want to hear from God, that we’ll be okay. That no matter what, this is according to his will. That we are going to make it. I have heard the voice of God clearly, once before, and I want to hear it again. I need it again. We need your prayers. Please to all who read this, pray for us.
Wow. Do you have the feels? I have the feels. I wish I could remember what I as talking about….
