GOD will provide

Well, as of tomorrow....DH is unemployed again,  :(  He was told yesterday.  No projects=no work. 
Prayers would be appreciated.  We knew it was coming.  sigh...There's not a lot out there in his field.  Hopefully, the company will get flooded with projects or another job will come quickly. 

The BBQ pit is done.  DH still has to make the concessions part, but he's been selling meat since Labor Day Weekend, on the weekends.  We are making enough to cover the cost of meat, but that's about it. 

This is becoming rather overwhelming.  I try to stay focused on the WORD and GOD's promises, but I'm not seeing a change.  That makes me sad.  Because I know in my heart, there should be one.  It's frustrating, because when nothing changes, it's hard in the flesh to continue to stand...

I woke up to this sometime this morning...early....after get another restless night sleep.

Genesis 22:1-18



1And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

2And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.


3And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.


4Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.


5And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.


6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.


7And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?


8And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.


9And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.


10And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.


11And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.


12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.


13And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.


14And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.


15And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,


16And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:


17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.


So even in my doubt, GOD's promises are true, and HE's reminding me of that.  It's all a matter of HIS timing. 
Blessings until next time!

Bobbi, I'm sorry to hear this and I know at times we ALL begin to wonder about the places we seem to find ourselves in life. I hope you'll read my post on Tender Solicitude. It may be a word for you now. Here is the link: http://penlesswriter.blogspot.com/2010/09/tender-solicitude.html/

We prayed last night for you and will continue! Right now we are in a "wait" place and have been for about a year. I told DH a few weeks ago that I know God's timing is perfect... I guess we just are early (which is so rare because we tend to be late!!!). I know God is going to show you great & mighty things, Bobbi, because of your faithfulness to HIM!
Love you!

Last week we had one project on the books. I was afraid, loosing sleep, which is so not like me. Continue to have faith and KNOW you are already provided for. That is what I told myself every time I worried. I know, it's hard to shake those emotions. Guess what, this week we landed three more jobs. Won't pay all of the bills but more than zero. Your time is coming! Blessings & ♥
