We Will Make It Through This

It's been a bit over 2 months since my last blog post. I had a couple of things that I wanted to write about, but several things happened that caused me to put those topics on the back burner. In February, two days after my birthday, it snowed here in Texas. My son was heading to work and wrecked his truck. At the beginning of March, my income was gone overnight because the company I worked for cancelled the project I was working on. Thankfully, a week later, they decided to reopen the project and I'm able to work again.

My dad is helping my son fix his truck which has quite extensive damage. They went to work on it this past weekend and realized some of my dads tools, a shop light we gave him for Christmas and a spotlight that was in my sons truck was missing. Someone broke into the garage and stole them.

And then, Coronavirus hit. As things starting shutting down, I was starting to worry about my families health, my daughters college classes, my husbands job and my daughters job. I'm grateful that both of them are able to work currently, but I'm also concerned about them coming in contact with this terrible virus. My husband is in the health field and my daughter is in the food industry.

As I watch the news and scroll through social media, it saddens me to hear of all the people struggling because of job loss. How scared they are to lose their home, cars, go into debt and wondering how they are going to put food on the table.

I feel for them.

We've been there. More than once. My husband was injured several years ago and was released from his job after workers comp would not fix his back. Then, he was laid off due to downsizing from another company. We just about lost everything. Our credit was ruined due to not being able to pay bills. We had our cars repossessed both times and we didn't know how we were going to put food on the table. It was scary.

That's when I became closer to God.

When I was younger, I went to church with my aunts, uncle and grandmother. In high school, I starting going to a church with my friend. I stopped going to church because I didn't feel comfortable there anymore. I still believed in God, but I didn't really get close to God until something that affected my whole world happened. I started reading my Bible, listening to Joyce Meyer and reading her books. The thing that drew me to Joyce Meyer was that I could really understand her. What she was telling me made sense. I felt like she was talking to me.

If you are scared right now and you don't know where to turn or what to do. Pray. Lean on God! Ask Him to help you through this. Ask Him to provide what you and your family needs. Have Faith that we will make it through this! We Will make it through this!
