What A Trying Month

Sometimes life seems great and then all of a sudden everything comes crashing down on us. Even recently this has happened to me. I lost my IT job in October and I haven’t been able to find a new job in November. Only one company has been pursuing me, and I’ll find out soon if it pans out or not. Oh, have I prepared for these interviews, and often prayed that I would get the job. I had the first, second, and third interviews this week alone and things are looking up. However, I am afraid that because of my lack of experience in some areas they may not be interested. Time will tell. As for my home and my family, I am thankful to be on unemployment, although my wife is very frustrated. I didn’t plan for this to happen. I thought that I would be with this company for many years. All I can say is this must be in God’s timing. Although we are tight financially, I am still grateful for what I do have with God. This life is temporary. However, what we end up storing in heaven is eternal. Thank you, Jesus, for blessing me and my family throughout all these years. You have not forsaken me.

In this month of November, I have decided to do something new that I’ve been telling myself I’d do for years, but never had the time. It was to create books based on the content of my websites. And I can finally say that I was motivated during this time off to start the process. I have one book coming, and will create others as time permits. I will not reveal the name of this book until it is ready for publication. All I can say is that the book will change lives for the sake of Jesus and His kingdom. God has blessed me with wonderful friends who will review my rough draft. I am excited to receive their feedback on grammar and other aspects of my work. Regarding this newfound motivation to create a book, all I can say is that it came from the Lord. This verse gives me hope. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10) Thank You, God, for the interviews this week, and the book I’ve started. May my family not be impacted financially because of this job loss. Help us, Lord. I believe in You. I trust in You, Lord. In Jesus’s Name. Amen.
