Rescue

Proverbs 11:8

The righteous person is rescued from trouble,

    and it falls on the wicked instead.
New International Version (NIV)

Kawikaan 11:8 (Tagalog) Magandang Balita Biblia (TPV)
Ang matuwid ay inilalayo sa bagabag, ngunit ang masama ay doon bumabagsak.

Oh, Lord...am I in trouble or what?
I woke up very early in the morning to find my self troubled with what we are going to have this day…with nearly a few hundred pesos in my purse… I nearly cry thinking how could we ever survive this?
Two months ago, I let my husband leave his job. He had been finally tired of the work that he had been doing for 23 long years. He tried all his best to explain himself and convince every one in the family why he should leave his job.

I know he is tired. I know the job he had is not the one his heart desires but stayed with it and sacrificed so that he can give us a comfortable life. Through the years he managed to make himself happy with it somehow and tried all his best to be good with it until this new boss stepped in last January 2013.
He couldn’t have left and waited for his retirement if not for the extreme stress he is undergoing EVERY SINGLE DAY with his new nagging boss…but what ever the reason why this kind of person stepped-in into this company…God has a purpose.
Thinking of the big decision we made this year, a lot of times I pray for God to help us choose the right one. We had been praying for it regularly until one day his new boss tried to bully him and placed an instruction removing security and giving him so much pressure. My husband feel more miserable and feared for his life…the decision was placed…he filed his resignation.
On the day he filed his resignation, I was crushed. I looked for a shoulder to cry on and God provided me one. Thank God…I feel so helpless at that moment…lost.
The half of my mind was saying, “What about the money? No more regular salary? No more comfortable life? How about the health insurances? The bonuses we enjoy?...comforts no more…no more…” with a feeling like the world is torn to pieces each minute I want to squeeze my self and disappear…I admit at this moment I was selfish.
After the heartbreaking moment, the other half and my heart told me “Look at him now…he is loosing his own health. He is starting to be emotionally bothered. Everyday he whines. Every day he complains and started to be irritable and his fear of loosing his own life is growing.” With that thoughts, I knew my heart would never fail to love this man that I married.
Looking at my husband on the decision he made, astonished I was, he was very comfortable while I was crushing into pieces…then I realized…where is my faith?

 The righteous person is rescued from trouble,


          Looking at him now after two months, he looked 10 years younger and happy. Perhaps he made the right decision…and as for my worries and the challenges that I am going through right now,  I know God will rescue me from trouble…I know God would.

  7. aw, this post really touched my heart. it's kinda hit close to home for me because i recently left my job of 8 years to become a stay at home mom. yes, admittedly, i sometimes think about the comforts that my salary brings to me and my family, but i guess sometimes you have to give up some things for more important matters, in my case, my baby. hubby and i didn't want to hire a yaya for our baby and we opted that it's best for me to just stay home. i agree, it's not all about the money, happiness can be found somewhere else. let's all just have a strong faith in Him and i know He will provide for us. I'm so proud of you, Ms. Glenda, you are such a very loving wife, i know your husband is more than happy. :-)

  23. Oh sis. God is with you don't worry. My husband and I both lost our jobs last 2010. And for 2 and 1/2 years, we've been seeking financial help from our families. And now Alhamdulillah Thanks be to God, we are slowly getting up on our feet. We still have lots of credits to pay, but the most important thing is we never doubted God and his plans for us. We know everything happens for a reason. Life is like a wheel sabi nga nila. Lahat ng nasa taas, galing sa baba. And ung mga nasa baba, tataas uli. Hang in there sis! Stay strong and keep the faith within you.

The Lord will show the way... and he always rescues us from trouble! Just last whole month of September, the whole Zamboanga is in trouble but I know he is making each of us stronger...
