Request For Wisdom--So What Else Is New?

December 6, 2012

Again I find myself askin' for prayer from my readers. Another job offer has come up for the Redneck, and it could be wonderful or awful, dependin' on how things might work out.

(Hmm..sounds a lot like plain ol' LIFE to me...)

Okay--here is what we are askin' ya'll to pray about--

WISDOM.

That's it.

Plain old wisdom. Not PLEASE DEAR GOD LET HIM GET THIS JOB, or PLEASE DEAR GOD DON'T LET HIM TAKE THIS JOB.

Just wisdom.

James 1:5 says;

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, Who gives liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."

We are askin' of God for the wisdom to make a big decision about this job. If he takes it, it will be a big lifestyle change for our family (like you haven't heard THAT before). If he keeps it, things will stay the same for a time at least, until he finds the right job. No matter what--we want GOD'S BEST for our family, not just what we think would be good.

Something we have noticed the past few months--God keeps changin' things up in our lives at a fast pace--scary fast, in fact. Every time we think we have our breath--He changes things up again.

Honestly, I think He is just givin' us the chance to TRULY trust Him, by keepin' us off balance. I think this is a time of testin' that is gonna PRUNE and TAKE AWAY (see previous post)a lot more stuff we don't need .

Well, I got prayers. Later ya'll.
