God's Not Done

One of my worst fears has come true. I find myself unemployed for the first time in 36 years. I spent the last 21 years at my previous employer, who terminated me and many others due to reorganization. I knew this day was coming as they shared the news with us back in May, and now it's October. I've been searching for a job ever since May.

I have been up and down with God. I will admit that shamefully. I want to believe this is a time of growing my faith and God teaching me to overcome any of my fears, no matter how big or small. I have to be willing to turn my fears over to Him. Surrendering all of this to God is proving to be more challenging than I imagined.

Why is it so easy to encourage others, but when it's something I'm facing, I can't seem to encourage myself? I believe this is the meaning of Proverbs 27:17 "Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another." I am receiving encouragement from people I never expected I would. They help me immensely to stay on the right path and keep my eyes on God and His plan for me. Never underestimate the power of words or deeds. It is true that when someone is struggling, it helps them to know they are not alone and that someone genuinely cares. Knowing others have struggled, and God brought them through just as He will do for me.

My younger sister recommended a song that has helped me during this time. The song is "Haven't Seen It Yet" by Danny Gokey. It's helped me to realize that God is not done with me yet. Just because I don't have my answer, and nothing has changed for months, God has a plan, and He will complete that plan. I'm still holding on to Jesus. I know what He can do. What He has done for others, He will do for me too. He loves me too much to leave me where I am.

He loves and cares for you too. No matter what you're facing, trust that He will complete His work in you also. Just because we haven't seen it yet, doesn't mean He's not still working on our behalf.



Lyrics:

Hmm

Have you been praying and you still have no answers?

Have you been pouring out your heart for so many years?

Have you been hoping that things would have changed by now?

Have you cried all the faith you have through so many tears?

Don't forget the things that He has done before

And remember He can do it all once more

It's like the brightest sunrise

Waiting on the other side of the darkest night

Don't ever lose hope, hold on and believe

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet

You're closer than you think you are

Only moments from the break of dawn

All His promises are just up ahead

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (oh)

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (oh)

Maybe you just haven't seen it

He had the solution before you had the problem

He sees the best in you when you feel at your worst

So in the questioning, don't ever doubt His love for you

'Cause it's only in His love that you'll find a breakthrough, oh

It's like the brightest sunrise

Waiting on the other side of the darkest night

Don't ever lose hope, hold on and believe

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet

You're closer than you think you are

Only moments from the break of dawn

All His promises are just up ahead

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (oh)

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh)

Maybe you just haven't seen it

He is moving with a love so deep

Hallelujah for the victory

Good things are coming even when we can't see

We can't see it yet, but we believe that

He is moving with a love so deep

Hallelujah for the victory

Good things are coming even when we can't see

We can't see it yet, but we believe that

It's like the brightest sunrise

Waiting on the other side of the darkest night

Don't ever lose hope, hold on and believe (don't ever lose hope)

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet

You're closer than you think you are (yes, you are)

Only moments from the break of dawn (Oh)

All His promises are just up ahead

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (oh)

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (oh)

(You gotta hold on, hold on)

Maybe you just haven't seen it, just haven't seen it yet (oh)

Just haven't seen it yet, ooh
