Prayers Update

Well, our first prayer has been answered. :-) We did find out that our house sold at auction, but that's not the answered prayer. The answered prayer is that we're being offered a program called Cash for Keys. What that means is the buyer will give us cash based on how fast we can move out. The longer we take, the less we get. Our choice is 15 days, 30 days or 45 days. 15 days is OUT of the question. 30 days we MIGHT be able to do, but now that I got this job during the month of October, I just don't think 30 days is feasible. So we're going to go for the 45 days. We'll only get $1000 instead of $3000 (or $2000 for 30 days), but we'll take it and be grateful! :-)

I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. ~Psalm 4:8

But this is just the first small step. There is still SO much up in the air, and uncertain. Of most importance of course, it would be really good if Bob got a better paying job that is just one job and not several part-time jobs. He did have a group interview with a local company today and he did well enough in this group interview so that he is scheduled for a one-on-one interview with them on Monday. This is great, only it is an entry level position in their call center, and the pay is still barely enough for us to survive on. However, if that is the job that God wants for him, then we will be grateful. And once he is employed there, he could hopefully transfer to a job within that would pay better and be more in his computer line of work. And there is also the possibility of a job as a project manager with a hospital corporation, but it would be in California! Southern California to be exact. Moving back to CA was not something we thought we'd ever do, but then we never thought we'd be in the place we are in our life, so if that is where God wants us then California here we come...right back where we started from! :)  Anyway, if Bob gets a job here in the Phoenix area, then obviously we'll be looking for a house to rent. If he gets the job in CA, then our stuff will go into storage, Bob will move into something temporary in CA, or maybe even stay with my parents, and the girls and I will look for a temporary place to stay until Rachel and Hannah's play is over and Sarah is done with her semester of college. So please pray that we find out soon about the CA job. The good part about it is that the pay is much better than this other job Bob interviewed for. But then we'd be moving back to southern California so we'd need more money for sure! So anyway, still lots to pray about there! :-)

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life; You stretch out Your hand against the anger of my foes, with Your right hand You save me. The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O LORD, endures forever—do not abandon the works of Your hands. ~Psalm 138:7-8

So we're breathing a little sigh of relief that at least we won't have to move within days from now. Thank you, God! I think that was weighing the heaviest on my mind. That along with the money issues with rent deposits and all. But hopefully with the Cash for Keys program along with my job and hopefully a more full-time job for Bob, we'll be able to pull it together. In any event, your prayers are working! So please keep them going! Thank you! :-) Oh yeah, and I actually slept last night for more than an hour or two. YES! :)

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made. The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food at the proper time.  You open Your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. ~Psalm 145:13-16
