2 Samuel 22:31 WORDart

Happy Thursday!

I am sorry for the lapse in blogging.  We were away on vacation visiting my family.  I brought my laptop and had every intention of blogging while I was away, but it just didn’t happen.   We have had this vacation planned for months and I thought the time would never come for us to leave.  My brother came from Florida and we were all together for the first time in several years.  I had such a great time with my family and, quite honestly, I was not ready for it to end.  Why is it that when you are looking forward to something it takes forever to come, but then comes to an end so quickly?

I have to share this with you, but I need to lay the groundwork first.  When this year started, I felt that I should have a theme for each month for my WORDart instead of having random scriptures.  As I feel impressed with a word, I write it on the next month of the calendar and then do a little research to find scriptures with that theme.  I then write those scriptures down on the week that I will post them, so my scriptures are written down weeks ahead.               Most of you are aware of my husband’s job situation.  The day before we left for vacation they pulled him in the office and told him that they were letting him go.  We were expecting this as this is quite common when a new management company takes over--to let the current general manager go and bring in their own people.  I have to say that the expectation and the experience are quite different.  My first reaction was, “Yes! I am so ready for the stress of all this to be over.”  However, it did not take long for reality to set in and with it all of the doubts…the fears…the what-ifs…the what happens now thoughts that totally took over my brain.  I hung up the phone with my husband and decided to work on my wordart and this was the scripture for this week.  It was exactly what I needed at that moment.  God is just so awesome! I love how the Word of God always speaks to me and encourages me.  I could not help but be thankful and praise His name because His way IS perfect!   We had been praying for God’s will to be done in this situation and how can you argue with God’s perfect way?  He is tried and true and I can put my trust in Him for our future.  He surely knows what is best for us!

I also have the WORDart that I created for Word Art Wednesday this week.  Sorry it is a day late.  I am getting caught up on all the post vacation duties.  If only there was a way to not have to unpack and do laundry after vacations—ugh.

Karen,
So sorry to hear about your husband's job loss...although, there appears to be good in it, too. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your Word Art. Thank you so much for sharing. Despite your current situation, you are so blessed to have such a strong faith in God. He will bring you through.
