Marriage ebbs and flows with time. Changes happen and couples must determine how they will change as well. I’m delighted to tell you that my dear Beloved has started a new job.
It’s been 2 years since we learned of his unemployment. 2 Years without full-time employment. 2 Years of my Beloved working any freelance job he could secure so that he could provide for his family.
Hearing of job loss can be a fearful thing. We made a decision early on that we would not live in the fearful place. We chose to live in faith and trust the Father. Do you know what? He was faithful to us in return. During what could have been the most difficult time of our lives, we found ourselves blessed 10 fold.
The time of unemployment has come to an end. My Beloved was offered and accepted a job as an Engineer in Charge, for a Television Broadcasting Fortune 100 Company. He could not be more thrilled. I am thrilled for him.
But new jobs, usually come with changes to a family. That’s where we are now. In changes mode. His job comes with a lot of responsibility. With his new job comes a new schedule, this is not a 9-5 type of job. He will have a lot of travel and stressful spur of the moment decisions to make. But, he loves it.
So we’re in this together. The changes are taking place swiftly and affect all three of us within the family, but we are in this together. We have to work through the changes, share the victories and struggles with each other because we are in this together.
Come what may, we are in this together.
How about you? Are you committed to seeing your marriage through whatever may come? How is your together-ness?
