“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. ~ Isaiah 43:18-19
Our family has just entered into the wilderness. My husband found out that the company he works for is selling all of their stores to franchise owners, which means that the General Managers (such as my husband) will be let go once their store is bought. He only has a job for one to two more months. I am praising God that we found this out, and we aren't just having them tell him one day out of the blue that he no longer has a job. Which is their plan for every other manager that works for them. My husband wasn't suppose to find out, and he isn't suppose to tell anyone.
This news was at first very upsetting to me, but then a friend shared Isaiah 43:18-19 with me. I hadn't yet told her about our news, but the verse just spoke volumes to our situation. Instead of stressing about the former job, we need to focus on where God is taking us from here. Only He knows what the future holds for us, and He will be there with us to carry us through whatever lies ahead.
There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. ~ Proverbs 23:28
