Always trust your husband!
This week, I have had a lesson strongly reinforced to me: God has given us our husbands for our protection, and when they have an intuition about our safety, we should immediately trust them and their judgment without question!
You remember the situation the other week and how my husband asked me to take the kids to his family's house for a little while? Turns out his intuition was right. We're not dealing with gang issues, but we're certainly dealing with other issues of a very serious nature. I don't feel like I should get into the details of the situation, but suffice it to say that we would covet your prayers for our safety and for the swift removal of the new tenant.
I'm sorry there's no real post today, but between this issue, settling back into home after being gone over a week, adjusting to watching a 1 year old who is more than a little bit
mommy-sick and working to help him adjust to our home and routine, life has been just a bit hectic these last few days. I do, however, have a great post in the works that I hope to have done tomorrow- the long awaited "Battle of the BPA-free Sippy Cups"!
Thanks for the reminder…its hard sometimes to trust and submit especially when I think that I know the “right” way…in fact, its hard ALL the time and a major struggle for me.
I am glad for your husband’s wisdom in this area.
Please don’t apologize for this not being a “real” post- this is an important message. Also, your blog has been a great help to me and I am glad for the opportunity to lift up you and your family in prayer. I am sure many others feel the same way.
Hugs, Stephanie- I’ll be praying. I’m guessing that your “tenant’s issues” may be similar to ours- hence our speedy move this week.
I am so thankful for my husband’s care this week, too!
Well, off to load up the truck with boxes. 🙂
By all means, no need to apologize for your post. Your family should always come first. Besides, I think your post is a real post.
Believe me, I sometimes have a hard time submitting and trusting my husband, not because I think he is wrong, but just simply because I want to be in control. I’m working on it though.
However, just as you said, God has placed our husbands in a position to protect our families and look after our well-being. Thank you for the reminder. I needed it.
In response to your tenant situation, here is a blessing and prayer for you and your family:
“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-36 (NKJV)
This blessing was given to me when I needed peace about a situation I was going through, and I haven’t forgotten it.
Oops, I meant the tenant’s issues might be similar to the issues to the people we’re sharing a house with- not ourselves! 🙂
Your family is in our thoughts and our prayers.
My Prayers will be with you.
