Moving to Survive

After the move, I am trying to get resettled, and back into our normal routine of life. I could make a full elaborate post about this move, but honestly, I could write about it for hours. We are just so thankful it is over.

I want to thank dear friends’ that took the time to help us, and kept us in prayer for the course of the month or more. It has been a trying year to say, nonetheless; however, I am reminded that my life could be a lot worse.

Let’s just say, when we made it to Southern Utah, my husband’s work status was terminated, and we received a partial paycheck. We did not know anything about it until after we arrived with all our possessions in a u-haul truck (260 miles from our last residency.) We had a moment of no job, or a place to call our own. It was a similar instance to what happened to us back in 2010 when we moved from Arizona. Although we have been frustrated to tears, we prayed and prayed without ceasing. I was angry, but I wasn’t hostile like I was nearly 4 years ago (James 1:19). I was more angered toward myself because I wish I could be a financial help in our marriage. My husband never makes me feel like burden nor does he ever imply he wished I could work. I beat myself up for something I cannot help. But, that is why there is God I need to readily rely on, everyday. I might not be able to bring in the means to support us with money, but as long as we have joy. Even if one day, God forbid, we did lose everything—we will always find joy in Him. Even though this life can be exhausting just surviving due to limitations, God’s miraculous blessings are never limited, and that is something I, myself, have to remember.

We trusted in Him. He sent us angels in disguise. He worked miracles within 3 days. My husband’s work was reinstated. We have a roof over our heads.

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. -1 Peter 4:12-14 & 16
