God is in control

Well, it finally happened. I knew it was coming but now it's finally here.

They cut my hours at work to 24. I will work Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. That is not enough to pay our bills. I will have to find a part time job or a whole new job. I hate the thought of interiews and such. My age is not working in my favor either. Not many companies looking for a 61 year old manager.

At Bible Study on Sunday, I requested prayer for God's guidance in this (knowing that something was going to happen). I am now trusting in him to provide. That is not an easy thing for a "take charge" kind of person like I am.

On one hand, I will have more time to do the things I need to do around the house and I can save money by doing more cooking and less eating out. I might even find my missing manuscript. Who knows!?

On the other hand, I would like to have a job. Actually, I would like to hit the Lottery and I may have as good a shot at that as I do finding another job!!

I'll have to wait and see what the net paycheck will be before I make a decision.

I could use your prayers for God's guidance and provision.

I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. Aw, man! That's a bummer. At least on the surface. God is working on it, though. If I haven't learned anything else over the past few years, I have learned that God is working on it. Whatever it is. He is. Always.

  2. That breaks my heart! I hope that doors are opened for you. You just never know what God has in store.

  3. Oh Susan, I'm sorry to hear the bad news! Know that I am thinking of you and praying for you as you navigate the job market -- you can do it!

  4. Thanks for the kind comment on my blog regarding rightly-ordered power.

    I am sorry to hear the news. I will pray that the Lord sustains you and that your requests are made known. I will also pray for peace and joy for your heart.


  5. Susan,
    I hope you get this comment, because I seem to have misplaced your email address!

    I am still planning on going to Tuesdays with Writers tonight (May 4). 6:30 p.m. It's open mike night, because the previously scheduled reader had to cancel at the last minute, so bring a little something to read!! :)
