As cliche as it is, I'm going to say it...
we are starting a new chapter in our family.
My husband has been laid off, which means our financial picture is changing.
I need not be frightened because God is our Provider.
He has provided for us over the decades, whether through employment, friends, public assistance, and odd jobs.
I admit it--
I prefer stability.
I prefer for my husband to have a stable, high income job. It brings me a sense of security.
But God knows when I need to dethrone idols,
and He lovingly provides opportunities.
I need Him to remind me:
HE IS MY STABILITY.
HE IS MY SECURITY.
HE IS MY SUSTENANCE.
Sure, cliche again. But true.
