Nothing in this life is guaranteed. The last 3 years he had to find work way out of his field just so we could have something. I was proud of him because instead of wallowing in the mud and refusing to work unless he had THAT pay, he took a pay cut and stuck it out. Finally, he's back in his career field and back to what he used to make. In the last 3 years I've learned how incredibly wasteful we were and how to be resourceful. I feel like God was doing a heart check on me. Rather than rely on myself, I learned to rely on Him and have faith. God gives and God can take away. It's easy to smile when we have everything going for us but what about when that's all taken away? Can we still praise God?
