As many of you know, hubs and I have been having severe financial problems for well over a year now. It has been really hard for us to keep the necessities lately and there were times when I must confess my faith faltered.

Hubs doesn't think I should tell anyone what I am about to share with all of you, but I disagree. I think everyone should know how God is working in our lives even if we can't see it right now.

We have been trying since he was laid off to get a Home Re-modification Loan. Well, today the bank sent us a letter letting us know that this was not going to happen. At first, I was very upset. I have been praying about this house as have my family and friends for a very long time. I just couldn't believe the bank was so unwilling to work with us.

After talking with my mom and having her remind me of some of the prayers I have been praying lately, I must say I felt much better. I know that this is what God feels is best for us right now. I know that He has not forsaken us and that He will take care of us. I just don't know how. We will not be living in the streets that I do know. We can move in with the children or with my mom if we have to.

We do have some time before we have to be out of the house and I am sure that God will use this time to let us see what direction we should take. Since hubs is not a believer, this may be a difficult thing for him to understand. But, I am trusting in God to help me help him see what He wants us to do.

The good news is I can finally go through all of this clutter and get rid of some things that hubs and I have been holding on to just because we had the space. I am looking forward to moving somewhere new and I know that wherever we wind up, God will have put us there and that is all that matters to me.

I hope that some of you that are going through similar situations will gain some encouragement from us. I would not wish this on anyone. It is hard to leave the home you have been in for so long. But, nothing on this earth is permanent and I still have a lot to be thankful for.

I am holding on to the promises of God and I know that whatever happens, He will be right there with us.

    I am sorry about the house. The Bible says and I believe that God will take care of our needs. But like I have thought or said to others, what my need is and what God's need is are two different things. Having said that, I do believe God will provide for you and you do have options of where to live so that is a good thing. Trusting that he knows best and will lead you and guide you is a hard thing to do, but I think your heart is in the right place so I look forward to hearing what he has in store for you and your husband.
