Guest Blogger! :)

  It was so bad we didn't think we were going to make it.  We felt like we had been sent to death row, that it was all over for us.  As it turned out it was the best thing that could have happened .  Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get us out of it, we were forced to trust in God totally- not a bad idea since he is the God who raises the dead!  And he did it, rescued us from certain doom.  And he'll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing.  You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation- I dont want you in the dark about that either.  I can see your face even now, lifted in praise for God's deliverence of us, a rescue in which your prayers played such a crucial part.

2 Corinthians 1.8-11 The Message

I recently asked my wife if she would allow me to be a guest blogger from time to time as God places something on my heart.  Although, I must admit that before Laura took up the practice I had no idea what a blog was. (insert laughter from wife)  I have found through my wife that it is a wonderful tool to communicate God's plan and mercy for our lives.  The past week has been another tough one for our family.  After seven years on my job I was given notice that my position would be eleminated at the end of the month.  As I heard the news my heart sank.  I thought, "why us?" and "why now?"  As I prayed and studied the scripture I came to the conclusion of why not now and why not us.  I was reminded that in our weakest moments God makes us strong.

As we move through this journey it is becoming more and more obvious we are unable to do anything without God.  As a father and husband I have spent the last few years looking at how far "I" had come and how much "I" had accomplished through my hard work.  I am so very aware at this moment that it is God that is in control and it is God who will bring us through these hardships so that He may be glorified.  We ask that you continue to pray dear friends for our family.  In the end we will all be able to share in the blessings that God promises to deliver again and again.
