Continue prayers for DIL. Things didn't go as I'd hoped, but she hopefully will still see my prayers for her will help her with even better things in the long run.

I also have to remember that his way is always the best way, so if it didn't come out as I asked, he must have something better in mind. I can't see it, but I believe it will happen. Even if I don't know how, I know it will....

Our family is in need of prayers, a miracle to be more specific. A court case that we weren't worried about due to lack of any truth to the claims recently came to a close, and it was NOT in our favor. We hit the Court of Appeals on Wednesday.

This is not our first rodeo, so to speak. We have been business owners for over 20 years. We lost everything in 2009. It was litigation brought by a family member. The defense cost us everything. Even though the outcome was favorable in the end, we had no money left to stay in business, lost our house, and most everything we owned. We didn't lose hope, not for long anyway, and we didn't lose faith.

It did take its toll on the kids. We need a chance on appeal. If it were just a monetary issue, we would just pay the creep and move on. But the judge awarded him all of the equipment that we need to run our business. We paid cash and avoided using credit to avoid a situation like this, yet here we are.

We are finally on a home that we love, the kids are happy and thriving in school, and I don't ever want my parents having to use their retirement money to pay for things that we would otherwise be able to afford. It's just so hard to believe because it was such an unbelievable claim. We are still in shock. My husband did indeed build everything in our plant with his own hands. It was hard watching him lose it the first time, but at his age, I just don't think he can do it a third time.

I know that the judges in this world don't matter. I know that when He judges us, it will be ok. I just need strength for my family. I need more help than anyone or anything on Earth could possibly provide to hold it together for the sake of the kids. Prayers for our family are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Katie

Dearest Mary, trusting and believing the Lord to hear every prayer and answer above and beyond what any person could ever think or ask.

My husband was out of work for three years and the Lord providing all of our needs as well as open a door for a better job. Hang in there, God is faithful.

Sending much loving support to you and your husband. <3

I will do that. We both have appts this week to apply for different things like hud housing, job searching, & trying to file unemployment has been a huge headache, as there's no more walk in services ... everything is done by phone or website.

we're also in need of finding things like insurance & finding something that will cover my RX's.

we're praying the Lord will break down walls & show us the way, make ways possible without obstacles. God has already supplied some extra money & friends offering support by checking on us.

one thing at a time, one day at a time & lots of prayers.

Thank you for ur prayers & I will def keep in touch.

Dh went to see a different PT today. he is concerned. DH's shoulder is locked. The surgery healed well. However, the PT he has been doing hasn't helped. He thinks it will be months. OUCH! So please pray it happens quicker than anticipated.

Not sure what surgery he had but I had elbow surgery and had locked shoulder afterwards. Therapy saved me! Follow exercises prescribed and I will pray that his results are good as well.

Default I need a lifeline

Hello Prayer Partners!
I humbly ask for your prayers. I never thought I would be where I am now- My husband is out of work almost 3 years, I was out too, but did find a job for 1/2 my previous pay. We are selling our house. Not sure where we will go yet. I feel very down. I know money is not the answer, Jesus IS the answer. I still have a hard time not worrying. Please pray that I lean on Him more - certainly I know I can not make it on my own strength. I should be going to church. I think I understand why God wants us to be involved in a local church. Without a home church, I feel very alone, and indeed I am. I am blessed that my children are believers and they understand the situation. That is a reason to Praise God.
Thank you for your prayers.
Lisa

Hello Lisa,

Please know that I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers. I can understand what you're going through because my husband and I went through similar circumstances.

Hugs, Rita

We are selling our house. Not sure where we will go yet. I feel very down. I know money is not the answer, Jesus IS the answer. I still have a hard time not worrying. Please pray that I lean on Him more - certainly I know I can not make it on my own strength. I should be going to church. I think I understand why God wants us to be involved in a local church. Without a home church, I feel very alone, and indeed I am. I am blessed that my children are believers and they understand the situation. That is a reason to Praise God.
Thank you for your prayers.
Lisa

Oh Lisa, please know you have many people here who care and will pray. Several years ago, my husband lost his job and was out of work for three years. The Lord was very gracious to us and provided for our needs. However, just when we thought we were at the very end of our rope, God opened a door for my husband to a good job with better salary.

Sorry you do not have a home church and can understand feeling very alone. My husband and I hold church in our home several times a week, just the two of us mostly. We spend time watching Christian programming, sharing thoughts, as well as praying together and the Lord blesses us in very special ways during our times together.

Sending you much loving support and believing our faithful Father will supply over and above what you could possibly think or ask... for He loves you so much, always has and always will. <3

Lisa, here is a prayer that I hope will be encouraging....

O Lord Most High, You rule over the heavens and the earth, for You made all things by Your great power, and You keep them existing and working by Your mighty Word.

You are exalted high above every star and galaxy in the entire cosmos...yet You are also "the God of ALL mankind," the great, personally present, personally involved God who loves, rescues and takes care of ALL who trust You.

You exercise Your gracious authority over ALL nations -- and over each individual in ALL the world. You, the true God, the living God, the everlasting King.

I praise You for Your sovereignty over the broad events of my life and over the details.

With You, nothing is accidental, nothing is incidental, and no experience is wasted. You hold in Your own power my breath of life and ALL MY DESTINY.

And every trial that You allow to happen is a platform on which You reveal Yourself, showing Your love and power, both to me and to others looking on.

Thank you that I can confidently move into the future non-defensively, with both hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead, for You hold the future and You will always be with me, even to my old age...and throughout ALL eternity.

Thank you so much- Rita, Kathy, Carol, Joan, and Catarina! I am very grateful for your prayers, and I thank you for your kindness! God is faithful. It is interesting that some of you have had similar experiences. I wonder if the purpose of us going through hardship is so that we can help someone else. If we have not experienced it (or something similar) ourselves, how can we understand when someone else is going through it?
You ladies are like a Barnabas Committee. Barnabas (translated: Son of Encouragement, in Acts).
Alright, I will stop going on and on...
Thank you,
Thank you,
Hugs to you all!
Lisa

I think the purpose of the hardships are to teach us perserverance and then when we have been through to the other side of our difficulties, we teach what we have learned. I have learned that nothing is too hard for God. We have NOT because we ASK not. He knows what we need but we need to bring it to him and allow him to work. I speak to myself with this too! I pray you all have a blessed Sunday....

I got something in my eye yesterday and it's still bothering me so I am going to see the eye doctor today around 11. I would have waited it out, but I didn't want to end up in the ER on Christmas Day. This is minor, in the scheme of things....had a prayer chain call yesterday that a woman from our church has a granddaughter who is having a biopsy today to see how far or deep her cancer has progressed, so please remember this request. I don't know her name, but God knows exactly who she is. Thanks!
