I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
If It Be Thy Will, Lord
We’ve all heard the phrase hindsight is 20/20: our understanding of events is clearer after they happen than beforehand. For obvious reasons, this is true. But for a Christian, a deeper truth lies within this simple phrase, for in hindsight we see not only God’s provision but also His providence in our lives.
I’ve written here about my husband’s recent 14-week unemployment. Part one is a reminder that God is good all the time, in the good and the bad. Part two tells about peace, hope, and God’s faithfulness during the months of waiting; His timing is perfect. Every day we are more certain my husband found the perfect job for him.
Today I want to share part three: how unemployment affected my prayer life. I hope it speaks to those of you who struggle with the same issues, no matter your circumstance.
