give us today our daily bread

I'm worried about my brother who looks like he will get laid off. He is only one of 35 families about to deal with the uncertainty (one of millions that deal with it). I'm so sorry. My niece is also dealing with uncertainty. My sister too. And I think allot about the future. I wonder about food security. I want more land, and more storage space. For me the need is "far off". Today we have food, we have health, we have everything we need. I want to be wise and prepare for uncertain times. I knew I can not control everything. But I pray...Our Father in Heaven, holy is your name, your kingdom come, your will be done...
My hope is not in the bank, it is in God. I have walked when I had no car, I have lived years not knowing where my rent was coming from, I have lived with disability, and I know where my help comes from. I am trying not to let fear drive me...I need God to lead me. And more then anything I need to thank God for faithfully taking care of us. Uncertainty turns to certainty when we fix our eyes on God. Our circumstances always change, but God does not change.

I don't watch the news too much it's all gloom and doom instead I work like the ants and try not to worry about tomorrow but plan for the future the best I can.
Trusting God will take care of me as He always has.

God has always provided for me. I have no fear that He will not now. I was officially given notice this morning that my position is closed. I have been offered another position, with less pay, but I need clarity and wisdom as to how to approach this. Thankfully, it appears I would not be displacing someone else. I will share more later. God is gracious and I am sqweezing lemonade with the leomons I have been given.
