I have been feeling kind of down lately. Hubby had been unemployed for several months. Finally he got a job and we felt it was truly a gift from God. He got up loving going to work. He was so happy! He got raises almost immediately and then a promotion. Life was good in the Love house.
Then, bam, with no warning he got laid off and we are back in the unemployed world. We are back to unemployment, depression, how do we survive, what do we do? I have been so down cause I don't know what to do?
Then this morning I was goofing off on facebook and I read this on author Beverly Lewis' page......"Dear friends, these verses touched my heart this morning, during my devotional time. Perhaps, they are meant to encourage some of you, as well. "Even in the darkness light shines on honest people. It shines on those who are kind and tender and godly...They aren't afraid when bad news comes. They stand firm because they trust in the Lord." ~ Psalm 112:4, 7 We're in this journey together! And how blessed we are to know that God is right there with us, though the triumphs and the challenges,jah?"
We may be in the darkness right now but God is still there and His light is still shining. We are honest, we trust and believe in God. We live for Him and He is there. He was there in the good times and He is there now. I don't understand why this happened but I do know we will be okay. We are not alone and God is bigger.
If you feel like you are alone and dealing with some battle out there in the darkness, look up, God is there and His light will shine on you if you let it.
