God is good even when life is hard

If you have checked out our other blog Emerging from Scratch, you will have read about my problem with ants. Well, they have migrated to my daughter's room on the ceiling where I might add there is no food. Anyway I have had a hard time dealing with this. We are hiring someone to come and spray because frankly I cannot take the stress of dealing with them everyday. I try to be frugal in most areas of our lives because we live on one income but this is not something I can be frugal with.

Our family has been having a hard time adjusting after this move. We have been here one month today. It has been hard taking a step down in our living arrangements. We are renting a mobile home. Let's just say although its sorta nice, it is older and not the same as living in a house like we are used to. My husband's job is more scheduled than we are used to and it feels like we are running the entire time he is home. We know God called us to our present location and even to this specific place we are living, but I personally am struggling with all the changes.
I have to remind myself of the goodness of God. He loves us. We are His children and He knows what is best for us.

My life verse is this and I do not remember its truth as much as I should.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope." Our future is in God's hands, a God who loves us and cares for us so much.

  1. I have Jeremiah 29:11 posted on a mirror in my downstairs bathroom! And, when times seem difficult, I like to reflect on that exact verse!

    Tell Tera Jacki say's, "Congrats on losing her first tooth!" That is a special time. I have Luke and Michael's first tooths' they lost somewhere around here!

    My son, Michael and I went to church with mom this Mother's Day morning at the Nazarene! It was nice. The sermon was on Faith!

    OH!! And Michael seems to wanting to come back home!! YIPEE!! Though, I am not pressuring him, and realize it will take time. I have ALWAYS known God spoke to me about my son returning to me.

    It's happening I believe sooner than later. Please, please remember Michael in your prayers! I know he is afraid of his father. He has always been intimidated by him to some degree, and I fear for him to tell his father he wishes to be with me again will be extremely difficult!
