Amazing Love

I'm a huge fan of Mercy Me. If you've never heard of them you should definitley Youtube them. One of their songs is called God With Us. This song has been playing in my head since yesterday.

Who are we that You would be mindful of us what do You see that's worth looking our way we are
free in ways that we never should be sweet release from the grip of these chains like hinges
straining from the weight my heart no longer can keep from singing.

Who are we, that God...the creator of the Universe is mindful of us. Who are we that He should know our problems and but better yet He wants to help?! Who are we? We are His children. The "apple of His eye" His most treasured possession...that's who.
Yesterday, was a crazy day. I don't think my husband sat down once all day. He was making preparations from the time he got up yesterday morning. Preparing the unemployment, the food stamps and gathring applications from every store he could think of. In the midst of his preparation though God already had it taken care of.

Yesterday afternoon while he was out one of his work aquaintances called him asking if he'd like to go back to work. He was a little confused but said of course. This man went on to tell my husband that a company that works with my husbands old company wanted to hire my husband and they would pay him more than he was making at the old job. They wanted to hire him asap so my husband was instructed to call this person asap to set it all up. He was a little taken aback as you can expect but he called the guy and they set it all up. Friends my husband is back to work today. He went in bright and early this morning. The best part, the owner of this company is a ordained Minister. I don't know if he runs a Church on the weekends but just the fact that this man said yes to God in hireing my husband makes my heart want to leap for joy. I'm a hugger and I wish I could just give God a hug.

This job pays more, he's only working with one man - the minister's son. He works a little longer at night but he's busy all day. No more hanging around twittling his thumbs. No more being used as a doormat, these men are equal. They have to rely on each other since there's only two and they stay busy.

In all my worrying, God was already working it out. He told me over and over He had plans for us. He wanted to calm my heart and give me peace but I just had to worry. Not any more.

God sees us. He knows us and He knows the problems we're having in this world. He wants to help, I can tell you I had many people praying for my husband. Even people from other states praying and He heard our cries and HE made this possible. My husband didn't have to do anything, we just waited and prayed and stayed close to God.

Praise God, people. Praise His Holy Name. He does answer prayer ~ it just has to be on His terms, not ours. His Love is amazing. He is God with us.
