Hi/Lo Thursday

This post is part of "Hi/Lo Thursday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check out their blog to read everyone else's "Hi/Lo" posts and get your link on their site.

"But let all those who put their trust in You REJOICE: let them ever shout for joy, because You will defend them; let them also who love Your name be joyful in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as a shield." Psalm 5:11-12

Our Hi and Lo this week was actually combined into one particular situation.

My husband's place of employment had a HUGE layoff- Lo

His job was spared - High

They cut back his time from between 50 and 60 hours...to 40 and then to 30. For a family of seven, living on one income, his overtime was our bread and water. This will definitely affect our lives. - L0

Once again, He still has a job - High (Praising God for His shield of favor during this time of need)

Many friends and co-workers were not as fortunate - Lo

Please remember to pray for the families who are unemployed! Pray that they each will seek God as their source...For

"My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:19

"The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it." Proverbs 10:22

"Let them shout and be glad, that favor my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant." Psalm 35:27

From personal experience, layoffs are hard! Even though he still has a job, his hours are being cut, so I'm sure you're still concerned.

I will be praying that God will continue to provide. As evidenced by your amazing story, He has certainly been faithful to you.
