Testimony of God's Will

Yet another great testimony happens in our lives. God is always so amazing.
I wrote before of hubby getting the business when his boss retired. Well hubs had been looking at another career opportunity in Abu Dahbi (Arab Emigrants in Iraq) that would have taken him from home for 1-5 years. He prayed and prayed, as well as did we about what he was suppose to do. He was so sure this job overseas was his answer to the failing economy problem and the answer we had been looking for.

As time went on, we both felt that it wasn't the answer, but he wanted to keep following the job prospect just in case. Secretly I prayed it would not go through, as I was not looking forward to the separation, but also prayed that God would show us the right direction to take. Then came the handing over of the business he now has. I was excited and happy for him, yet he was still curious about the job prospect in Iraq. I was shocked.

Well today we received the answer that he is right where he belongs, and talk about a lift off the old shoulders. We were both relieved. Somehow in the backs of our minds, we knew this was where he was meant to be, as why would God put him here in this position if he were meant to travel abroad?

So once again, He gives us a silent reminder to always pay attention to His desires for us. Not to try and make those decisions on our own. What a precious Father we have, never doubt Him for one minute. He is always looking out for our best interests. We might not always agree with His decisions, but always remember, He knows the outcome, something we can never know!
