Today's Daily Devotional

I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:4

04/10/09 I spent 13 months out of work in 2007-2008. Those 395 days were not days that I wanted to praise. But praise I did. Sometimes through my tears. Sometimes completely fearful of what was going to happen. Sometimes upset about my situation although I was not responsible for it. But always trusting that God was right there, arms wrapped tightly around me. He helped me to heal from the betrayal of my employer and actually forgive those who laid me off. The Lord removed anger and hatred that I felt for those who put my family in financial jeopardy. God drew me nearer to Him so that I saw Him as larger than I’ve ever seen Him before. And He was gargantuan compared to my petty problems. And what’s better is, He had it all under control. He not only blessed me with a new job. He’s allowed me to see a bit of the purpose of it all. Hallelujah!
