I work in a declining industry. I work for a local newspaper and it is barely clinging to life. There were an astounding number of layoffs this week at work. Pretty much only a skeleton crew will be left to do the work. I know have a staff of two to take care of three newspaper facilities. I am working harder than I ever have. My family life is still as demanding as ever as is my church life.
But through it all I am joyful. It is a joy to have the airplane project to work on with my son. It is the bright spot in my day. But it is also joyous to have God’s promise. His promise that He will provide for me. Scripture promises that if I acknowledge God in everything I do, He will make my paths straight.
I’m also eager to see what this year brings. I have God’s promise that He will provide for me. I can’t wait to see how He does it.
