I have a God who loves me

Sometimes my life seems to careen out of control.  I don’t feel like I know where I’m going or what is going to happen next.  Recently my husband has had troubles at work.  And now he is talking about his resume and jobs in other areas of the nation.  And I wonder, how will my kids live?  We have always gone to where the work is.  So will we leave here now?  How many more changes to my life will there be?But I do know who holds tomorrow.  I do know who holds my hand.  I know that God knows what I will need to do.  I know that God loves my children even more than I do.  He loves them more perfectly than I could ever hope to love them.  And he will protect them and care for them and provide for them.So, I will do what I need to do in the days ahead.  And I will be supportive as I continue to work hard at my supposedly part-time job, which is taking more time now than in the recent past.  The good thing is that it is more money.  The bad thing is I have less time to write and perhaps make more residual income.And if we do move, will the housing be less?  Will we be able to sell this house, pay off our bills, provide transportation for ourselves and still have enough for a down payment on another home?  Even though I love the adventure of moving and starting over somewhere else, now my kids won’t necessarily move with us.  My married daughter will stay here with her husband and his family.  And what will my son do? And what will my other daughter do?  They don’t make enough to provide a home for themselves.Will he be able to find a different job here, but it will pay less than he is making now?  And we will need a car for him, a laptop for him, and a phone for him.  He might have to drive a long way to work like my daughter does now.  Where will he be able to get work?  Will we be able to make our mortgage payments?  Will I need to get another client to make ends meet and just work 50 or more hours a week to help out?But I have a God who loves me.  He knows what the future will be.  He is strong enough to hide me and help me through each day.  I will cling to him.  And see what happens.  I will stay thankful for all he has given me.Psalm 18:1-3 I love you, God— you make me strong.God is bedrock under my feet,  the castle in which I live,  my rescuing knight.My God—the high crag  where I run for dear life,  hiding behind the boulders,  safe in the granite hideout.I sing to God, the Praise-Lofty,  and find myself safe and saved.God, you are my bedrock under my feet.  You are the foundation that makes me strong.  I can stand up and get my balance in my life because of you.  You are the castle in which I live.  You alone provide a home for me and my family, for my loved ones.  You are my rescuing knight.  You protect me from the fears of the darkness and fears of broad daylight.  You are where I run for dear life.  You are my hiding place.  I am safe in the granite hideout of your being.  You protect me and you provide for me.  You are my God and my Safety.
