{Not Always} Simple

If honesty is the best policy, I have to say that today has been hard.
I feel...let's see...unsure, sad, worried, forgotten.
There is still underlying peace about the job situation, but along with it, the natural part of me wants to KNOW, to SEE, to have SOMETHING accessible to hang onto.
There isn't any of that...and so, I feel like I'm stumbling, walking forward blindly with loads of insecurity.

This too shall pass, I am I was reminded tonight,
"Ye shall receive no witness until after the trial of your faith."--Ether 12:6
Now to trust God...and give this burden, these feelings to him.
Unfortunately, that's not always a simple choice...
but I'm working on it.

I'm feeling much the same way these days with Jake out of work as well. While I'm trying to savor and enjoy all this extra time with him, the uneasiness is still there in the background. I'm sure there is security and peace in both of our near futures! Love you...

Thank you for this post! This is exactly what I needed to hear today. We just found out Monday (two days ago) that Mike lost his job. {We haven't told really anyone yet except for family and a couple close friends} but it's been a tough few days. Not sure what is in store for us....I think that is definitely the hardest part for me, the not knowing and uncertainty of the future right now. But thank you for this. I know it sounds weird, but it's kinda nice knowing we are not the only ones having to go through this. And that there is someone I can talk to that understands and knows what we are going through.

A feeling everyone would be feeling in your situation. I'm so sorry about this. I wish I could offer some comfort. I know your testimony in the previous post is true. You are in God's hands. You are an amazing family! You seriously inspire me!
