The job journey

If you've read this blog for a long time, then you know our story of Kyle's job journey. Back in July of 2008, Kyle lost his job, and the next week we received our referral from our adoption agency. It was a huge step of faith to say yes to Jack, trusting that God would provide a job both to support us and to not stop our adoption in it's tracks (agencies frown on people who have no income adopting children :)

God did provide a job and with Kyle's severance we were never a day without a paycheck. It turned out to be a great time for our family to grow close and to grow in our trust of the Lord. And when God provides, man does He provide. Kyle has gotten the opportunity to work for a company, Capsher Technologies, that we both really love, they do such a great job taking care of their employees and their families, and with our past jobs we don't take that for granted. They do such a good job in fact, they won a "Best Place to work in Texas" award. I'm so happy for them, they really deserve it. They were even on the news, want to see, go here.

It really is a great thing to take the time to look back on how seemingly "bad" things, were all apart of God's good plan for your life. It does me good to be reminded of His control, His goodness, and His love for me.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
