Two steps forward ...one step back!
Galatians 6:9 (New International Version)
9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Just when I was getting use to him being gone and looking forward to having a little more space in our house these next few months. Bam!...I am hit with a road block.
I am trying really hard to not get discouraged. Our older son ...the one who moved out a couple of months ago...the one whom I was crying over for a week...will be moving back home. His hours are being cut at his new job and will not provide enough income for him to live on his own. I guess this is a sign of the times. I just wish he could get a break! I really hate to see my kids hurting and discouraged.
God in His faithfulness has this all under control. I just wish I could get a glimpse of what He's up too. God's plans far exceed ours and trusting him is all we have left to hold on to.
The mom in me is very excited that he is coming home...2 hours away is just toooo far! However, the mom in me would like to see him achieve his goals and dreams. I am looking forward to seeing where God takes him next! I just hope He gives our son the ears to hear and eyes to see the direction He's taking him towards a new job.
So, as we once again shift rooms around and welcome our son back home... I will continue to praise the one who has blessed me beyond all that I could have ever hoped for. I will choose to trust that He has our best interest at the very core of His heart. I will not grow weary and I will not faint!
Now, to find a place to put all the toys that are in his room...
