All is Well

by adustyframe ~ December 12th, 2010

We had a really rough week this week. It’s not all things that I can share but it wasn’t fun.

I spent a lot of time praying and asking God to please just help me to rest in his sovereignty and be peaceful.

I do have a tendency to freak out and fall apart before I know what’s going on.

The end of the week found us without a job for Lee. Losing a job is never a good thing. Losing a job at Christmas isn’t a good thing either. Losing a job in a year when your husband only worked for 6 months isn’t a good thing either.

I’m so grateful for God’s mercy and strength this week. He provided peace and joy in my heart and we can honestly say, “All is Well.”

Take a moment to let the peacefulness of this song rush over you today. And then I want you to rest with joy in the sovereignty of God in all the things you are dealing with in your life too.

(And pray for Lee to get a job!)

All is well all is well
Angels and men rejoice
For tonight darkness fell
Into the dawn of love’s light
Sing Alleluia
Sing Alleluia
All is well all is well
Let there be peace on earth
Christ is come go and tell
That He is in the manger
Sing Alleluia
Sing Alleluia

All is well all is well
Lift up your voice and sing
Born is now Emmanuel
Born is our Lord and Savior
Sing Alleluia
Sing Alleluia
All is well

Born is now Emmanuel
Born is our Lord and Savior
Sing Alleluia
Sing Alleluia
All is well

    “I do have a tendency to freak out and fall apart before I know what’s going on.” I think that’s just a way of putting on some armor and protecting yourself, and is based on past experience. But recognizing it allows you to learn new responses if you choose to. Hugs to you and best of luck to Lee with the job hunt.

    I am praying that God will give Lee a better job than the one he lost. (Not to imply that it was a bad job – just asking for abundant blessings.)

    Oh Lizzie, sorry for your rough week and for Lee’s job loss. I am praying for the Lord to provide a new one for him. I just heard this song yesterday, and it has encouraged me so much. Perhaps it’s just what you need right now. http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=75445205434

    Oh good–it’s “only” his job! I was thinking it might mean he had to go “back” for some reason……I’m praying for the job!!!

    yes, it’s funny but losing his job was the best scenario!
