I lost my job on Tuesday. on the lonely drive home to face my wife (who is in the midst of divorcing me) and sons the transmission on my truck went out. My checking account balance is close to zero after a string of heavy debt burdens that recently chellenged my wife and I. Okay...now that you have read what could be a potentially heart-wrenching prayer request, let me offer some praise and encouragement to others who face similar challenges in life...On my lonely drive home, I received a call from my wife. She was bubbly and shared with me that she got offered the job that I asked prayer for on February 25th. She also thanked me for so many things, and encouraged me as I have done for her so many times. She shared that she had a change of heart and really does want us to be together, citing extreme stress being at the core of her desire to leave me, and not feeling worthy. Her job offer happened minutes from when I was let go from mine. When I got home and my wife and I shared the events of the day with our boys, my younger son, who is in an auto tech class at his high school shared that the school had puchased the exact transmission that is needed for my truck, and if I would allow him, they can repair my truck in class for little to no cost. Now, who says that prayer does not work??? More proof? I have been praying for some time for some relief from huge debt burdens. As it turns out, we paid off 'just enough' of our debts, where my wife's new job will provide sufficient income for our needs until I find a new job. God is providing our needs, and allowing me to see it clearly...no veiled provisions. more importantly, my wife and boys see it too. My faith in God has sustained me through horrible stress, and shown those closest to me the power of God. He owns it all; He knows all about our needs (if we will only ask); He has the power to do all things for good. Thank you Lord, and thank you prayer warriors. Be encouraged. God IS on the ball!
