"God Is In Control."
I have been singing that song in my head all day.
He is in control of the good times, like our vacation, which by the way was wonderful!
We had the best time we have ever had! More about our trip at another time.
God is in control.
Does it seem to you that God will bless your socks off right before a storm hits?
God is in control.
Today I had a meeting at the Christian school where I teach Special Ed resource. It seems that there is not enough funds this year, so my full-time job has become part-time/adjunct faculty. Long story short...my benefits and pay was slashed by almost everything. The school is doing everything it can to keep me on, and for that I am grateful! They have went above and beyond what I would have expected. Everything is contingent on the parents being willing to pay above tuition for Resource services. So my work load and pay will increase as the need for resource services increases, but I still won't qualify for benefits. I am praying hard!
So...God is in control.
I don't mind admitting that my fear factor is fluctuating like crazy! One minute scared to death---the next I'm soaring on the wings of faith and wonder.
I know God will take care of us financially....He has many times before. Yet, I am scared because I will miss the discipline, fellowship, and consistency of working everyday.
At the same time...I have an excited anticipation at seeing what God is fixing to do! Is there something He wants me to do that a full-time job would have been in the way?
So my dear friends here is how you can pray for me:
Pray that I will walk by faith and not by sight.
Pray that we will be able to decipher all the details about my insurance now.
Pray that God will reveal how He is going to take care of this in His time. I wanted a direct e-mail when I got home. Of course He did that...NOT!
Pray that I will have more speaking opportunities. I have two scheduled for September then nothing after that.
Pray that I will have more writing assignments.
Pray that God will lead my husband to the right church position soon. We are close to this one being answered but it isn't final yet!
Pray that we will be an example of faith for our daughter during this time.
Thank you for loving us and praying for us.
I am scared but......NEVERTHELESS....GOD IS IN CONTROL!
