I do not have any great words of wisdom to share with you tonight...I am very tired...I didn't sleep well last night or the night before...I keep waking up and thinking about my new job and all the stuff I don't know yet that I will be expected to know very soon...and I have little panic attacks worrying about things I really can't do anything about except pray and commit them to the Lord...
I am burdened tonight about several things...I won't go into details, but it seems as though one of my sons who lives far away from home has lost his good job, and he is now out of money (again), and has no where to go and no way to get there, and no money or prospects, and bills that are due. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to help him right now having just spent the last eight months unemployed, and even though I just started a wonderful new job, pay day is still a ways off...and our bills are piled quite high too. And besides, would I really be helping him, or enabling him at this point...that is a question that keeps coming back to me frequently....but there was something in his voice on the phone that struck deep at the chords of my soul...my child is hurting and is far away from home. It's not the first time, and probably won't be the last...but he is still my child, and I love him and want to help him in the best way that I can.
I have to place this and all the other concerns in the capable and loving hands of Christ my Savior. He will do the right thing in all circumstances.
Tonight I must pray this prayer:
"The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1)
Ok, Lord, I will trust in YOU. I KNOW that You will hear and answer my prayers in accordance with Your plan and will. Thank you. Good Night and God bless you all. Tomorrow is a new day..."I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!"
