Testing Faith

 You know that time in life when you just all the sudden feel  like is tossed upside down. That happened this morning. My husband's job is getting bumped because the union on the line, is pulling rank and saying that their contract says anyone who is hired at the company now, needs to be a bid in from the line. Since my husband was working for a temp agency, they have to end his time there.  Which means he is out of a job.  Again.  Can I just say that for the 3rd time that Unemployment has hit our home, I'd really like a little stability to our family's life.
I've really been praying all day today. Started from 5:30 this morning. When I first found out that although via email last night they told my husband to be in to start shift at 9am. (He had started to cc ing his staffing agency since he felt like something just wasn't right, on every email.) Then got a call this morning saying that he wasn't needed since he didn't come in at 5am. (Uh what? Yeah.. I was confused also.)  He then got a call from his staffing agency.  They didn't understand what was going on, and then also got a call that all temps that were in the office area of that company, (him and 3 others) positions were no longer needed.  And all those positions were now being bidded on.

I felt like screaming at first.  But I didn't. Instead I prayed. The day after the Easter, it's a test to my faith for sure.  I love Jesus, and he for sure Loves me.  I learned a lot yesterday that faith is something that only you can break, not anyone else.  The Lord has strange timing. I don't know what is to come.  I sure hope for a job for my husband.  I know sometimes things like these are a strange blessing in disguise. I just feel upset that it's has had to be these 3 times in a row.  I know that if I set my faith in his guidance we'll make it through this.  We've been placing faith in him all this time and we've been okay thus far.  There is just so much uncertainty.   Now we just wait for the call that might change our lives for the best.
