Eerie Peace

I'm writing this post before Robert has had a chance to put his thoughts down on paper blog. I've asked him to, so I'm pretty sure he'll word things a heck of a lot better than me. All I can say is, we didn't see it coming. Robert getting laid off, that is.

Back up. All last week for me (month for Robert), it's like we could tell God was up to something. Didn't know what and wasn't worried too much. But I think we both sensed it in a way. It's like our hearts were being prepared. We had a few interesting events happen that started it off. And then we got the big news. No job.

The ironic part for me was I wrote this post just three days before we got the news. HOW CRAZY! Anyway, I'm not going to go into details. BUT, what I do know for sure is that everything is going to be MORE than okay. Robert's never had any problem providing for us in any kind of circumstances. God has big plans for my man, and this is one of those stepping stones on his way there.

There's been an eerie peace in this house. And a burden lifted for sure. We don't know what is around the corner, but we blindly walk in faith!

What I don't want is people feeling sorry for us. We are and will be just fine. Promise! Our faith is not in things of this world. So, get ready to see some pretty neat things happen. We're being challenged by our God in a good way. We're ready too.

What I do want is for family and friends to join us in prayer through this "adventure" we're on - cause it may get tough.

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."

1 Peter 4:12,13


  1. I will certainly pray for your family. Thanks for letting us know.

  2. Like Beth Moore says, "Lord, I can't wait to see what you have planned for me on the other side of this. I know it's gonna be good!"
    I'll be praying for you guys!

  3. Lord,
    I ask that you will continue to shower this family in your love and peace and provide a wonderful job for Robert in your perfect timing. I ask that others may learn of Your perfect love through their tough situation. In your name I ask these things!

  4. The strange thing is that just over a week ago we asked Robert to pray for our family as we lost a loved one and the quote that you posted fits both of our circumstances. I will definitely be praying for you and your family and know that things will work out wonderfully.

  5. Get it girl! Y'all will be just fine, you always have been. And it's great to know that God will give him something even better! Your faith inspires me. I'm praying always! Love you!

  6. Wow. We will be praying with and for y'all. I am inspired and awed and almost brought to tears by your response of complete support and confidence in Robert. I have no doubt that God is pleased with that kind of response...complete respect. "Wives respect your husbands..." Way to flesh that out! And thanks for being such a wonderful example! We'll be praying!

  7. What can I say that hasn't already been said! What a strong women of faith you are and Robert (man of faith that is:). Can't wait to hear what God is up to with this.

  8. I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's job situation, but I truly look forward to seeing what God has in store for your sweet family. I know it will be awesome! I'll be praying for you!

  9. Linds, you have NO idea how much I needed to hear that verse today :) Ive written it EVERY WHERE! Love to your family - I am praying for God's Glory here and God would quell any fears that pop up, as well as protection for your family!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
