I purposefully kepy quiet.
But I'm not the type to keep secrets. So I have to tell you all.
Well, actually, I want to tell all. But I can't.
So this will have to do.
We all know that the financial news hasn't been pretty. The news on Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, AIG, Merrill Lynch, etc. sent shockwave through the financial system.
I've mentioned before that my husband works for a mutual fund. Not pretty days for them. Even worse, his fund is a subsidiary of AIG.
We know that there are changes coming. What we don't know is what these changes look like. Due to SEC confidentiality stuff I can't really say more than that, but I would really appreciate your prayers.
Not knowing is the cruelest of all punishments. The waiting and the uncertainty forces you to almost put life on hold. I keep having to remind myself to trust in Him.
I know that He is wonderul and He is omnipotent, but I frequently wonder why He remains quiet. A few days ago Amy at Chapters wondered why God didn't use a bullhorn. I agree. A little comforting would go a long way. A little assurance would help. I know He has a plan. I know He doesn't have to tell me what it is. But a few hints now and then would be nice.
For now I just keep praying:
"Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand....For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." (Isaiah 41:10,13)
