Pray! Pray some more! I think you people are great at it!!
I mentioned on Tuesday that my husband has 6 1/2 weeks of employment left.
I'm not sure exactly why I haven't brought it up on my blog before now. There is no reason to be ashamed or anything. His (civilian military) job is being moved to a place we don't feel led to go. The move is beyond our control, and it doesn't make a lot of sense to us...but it is what it is.
We are rooted here. We have family. We have great friends. We have a nice church home.
We'd really like to stay here...or at least close.
But even with all of those reasons to stay, I don't want to go against what God wants for our family, nor do I want my husband to end up in a job that he's miserable showing up for everyday.
For the past 8+ years, he's had a fabulous job. For the last 2 1/2 years, he has been running the show, and although that meant that he had to travel a lot, he has loved his job. He's been able to travel internationally. He was able to take me to Hawaii, D.C. and North Carolina on a few of his trips. It has been stable and it's been the means by which God has provided everything we need...not to mention that I've been blessed to stay home with my children from day one.
As they say, I guess, all good things must come to an end.
If we have to relocate, I will be a supportive wife. I believe that the leader of our family should be happy doing what he needs to do to provide. It wouldn't be easy, but at least we would be together. (This is where I think of true military families where the family can't be together while the provider provides...what a sacrifice! Thank you, military families!) At least we would be together.
Monday, he received word that someone had called his 'company' inquiring about him.
Tuesday, I mentioned the job issue in my post and asked you to pray.
Wednesday, he was contacted to set up a job interview.
I see no coincidence here.
You told me you would pray. I believe that you did. And now he has a job interview.
This is an open door. Who knows (only God) if this is the door, but it's a door.
This particular job would keep us where we are, with very little change in income and benefits, and his time towards retirement would carry over. Huge pluses.
The interview is next Tuesday at 9am.
Please continue praying...
God is at work.
