There are days you just never see coming, Friday was definitely one of those days. For those that do now know, a year and a half ago my husband accepted a job at Auburn University so we moved. The company I had been working for at the time offered to let me continue to work for them from home. It seemed like an ideal situation. With all of the medical issues this year it truly was a blessing. And then on Friday I was laid off.
I have unfortunately been in this situation before (twice actually), but that doesn’t make it any easier. I admit that I ugly cried for a few hours…some times you just need a good ugly cry. And I admit that there were feelings of anger, frustration, and “how can this happen to me AGAIN”. I have replayed the phone call fifty thousand times in my head and let me just say that hearing “it had nothing to do with your work performance” does not make the news any easier to digest.
But today I awoke with restored confidence and peace that only He can provide. Tomorrow the tough work begins…finding a new job. Our journey continues, with new bumps and twists around every corner. This was not in the plan, but it was in His plan. We know that God closes one door to open an even better door. So we remain steady. We remain sure. We remain faithful.
