There is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother. Prov. 18:24 NIV84
Things have been crazy at work lately for my husband. He is a truck driver who delivers snack foods to our regional area. (Important job, right?! We need our snacks! lol) He is supposed to work 4 days a week, about 45 hours a week, but a couple of months ago one guy quit and a second guy is sick and out of work. So that means the remaining few drivers have to make up for this time. My husband has been working 60 hours, 5 days a week in a physically demanding job. He’s really worn out. Theres no time for a break. Basically work, come home, sleep and go back to work again. We are praying that they will get some new people hired or that God will find him a better job. This is frustrating, but at the same time, we know God is in control and still has him in this situation for a reason.
My husband lost his business making maps out of our home several years ago when the economy went bad and since became a truck driver. Since I have found myself alone more, a lot less time with my husband. And I find that when I have a need, God is there to fill it. Sometimes we don’t experience more of God until we need Him. So I need more of God now. I realize that I’m grateful that He is here. He spends time with me, keeps me company. He helps me plan my day and walks with me throughout it. He comforts me when I am sad and allows me to pour my heart out when I am frustrated. He holds me as I fall asleep. I am never alone.
