Miracles happen!

I have always believed in this verse:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

But never before have I seen it SO clearly.

Back in January, I shared with you about my dad losing his job of 18 years. My dad took a leap of faith and accepted a job in Amarillo, TX. While he wasn’t happy about the location of the job, he felt that it was what he was being called to do and went.

The past few months we’ve seen him every couple of weekends when he’d come visit and slowly but surely, plans were coming into place for my mom to move and join him as well.

In the meantime, we’ve been praying that God’s will be done, and if it meant a move to Amarillo then, so be it, but we all needed strength to endure that. I was filling out school forms last week and it made me cry that I couldn’t write my mom down as our emergency contact. We have all been dreading the big move.

Well, even when we can’t see it, the Lord is working behind the scenes. This past Friday evening, my dad came home with amazing news! He was offered a promotion in the company he is working for and is now the boss of the ENTIRE company. It is a subsidiary owned by a parent company, and he will be the #1 at the subsidiary, answering to the VP of the parent who answers to the president of the parent. Simply amazing. He will now be the boss of his boss…. kinda crazy!

Oh, and I haven’t even gotten to the best part. His new job will be in Oklahoma City!!!!!!!!!! They will now only be moving 2.5 – 3 hours away!!!!! While it’s still moving, it’s now half the distance and we are all just so excited and thankful!

This is a huge promotion for my dad and is something that NEVER would have happened had he not lost his job and accepted the job in Amarillo. This is better, more challenging job than the one he lost and after a year of heartache and struggles, God’s will for my parents has been revealed!

We are SO proud of my dad for his strength, perseverance and faith during this hard time! Not only that, he up and moved 6.5 hours away and spent a lot of time alone – I know that couldn’t have been easy. He has done what he felt he was being called to do and the Lord has rewarded his faithfulness!
