“…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” – Isaiah 40:31
My work contract ends on March 31. My bosses are working hard to keep me. However, visa issues have kept them from making any promises if I’d stay or leave.
If I’d manage to stay, I would survive a second redundancy case. Being kicked out is nothing new. Working in the Middle East as an expat is an uncertainty these days. In fact, it has been, the past couple of years. My husband was actually one of the first casualties.
It’s sad considering we’re still way above our heads in debt. And with my husband still unemployed, I should have worried myself to death, or to debt, for that matter. To even imagine the prospect of being jobless as well, would have made me cringe.
But even I am surprised how the grace of God has given me the absolute trust that my husband and I are not alone in this plight. I know that He sees what we are going through, and He will not leave us alone, helpless and hopeless.
I don’t know what’s in it for me by the end of this month. But God knows. Because he had already written it long before I was even born. He planned it for He is the architect of my life.
Surely His plans are not to harm me, but to prosper me. Exactly how, only He knows. And if only for that, I should not be afraid. Because if I depend on what I know, there’s nothing but despair.
But in God, I lean on because only He knows what my purpose is. Through Jesus Christ, who is the Way, I shall find it.
