Unemployment Update

I thought I'd just give an update on my hubby's job search.

Well he's still searching...

But, he has had his orders extended for another month an a half temping at the Air National Guard Base. He's been doing this off and on now for almost a year.

For some reason God really want him out on that Base. He's had multiple really good interviews with various different companies, but it always seems to be that they go with one of the others they interviewed. He has gotten discouraged a few times, but then they extend his temporary orders on Base. Every time he thinks God is directing him away from Base, God steers him right back to it.

It's kind of frustrating, but I trust that God has Nick right where He wants him.

I can't help but be reminded of the lyrics to the hymn "His Eye is on the Sparrow". It speaks such encouragement that God has is all worked out to His greatest glory. I'm trying to let that truth bring me peace, but every once and awhile I doubt God and His plan. In those moments I just remind myself of how faithful to work everything out He has been up until now. I'm trusting that He will continue to work it out for His glory and His plan.

I just wish I had the inside scoop on what He has up His sleeve!



  1. Such a sweet hymn! When my husband and I were dating, he couldn't find a job to save his life. He had great interviews but they always went with someone else. I know exactly what you both are going through. Almost our whole first year of dating went that way. But we learned so much through it. And there's no better place than exactly where God wants you! My prayers are with you both!

    1. Thank you! It's nice to know that people can relate, because when you're in it you can start to feel isolated from all the "normal" people. Your prayers are much appreciated!
