Things are changing really fast for my wife and I lately.
I had been looking at a new venture, but had decided against it for several reasons. Then a couple weeks ago, I got my life straightened out with God. I felt that I was supposed to pursue that venture and when I did, some of the things that held me back started falling in place.
Next week is my last week at the place I've worked for 6 years. One week ago I brought home what I truly believe God guided me to get for this next job. 2015 Dodge 3500 crew cab, dual wheel, 4x4, Cummins, with goose neck and bumper hitch. There are some features on that pickup that I didn't think were necessary, but have since found that they could be needed on some loads. God Knows what we need whether we do or not.
I live by a very large Amish community. They hire people to haul there stuff. Cabinets and new trailers make a large portion of what goes out of this area. Trailers mostly go to eastern states; cabinets go all over the US. There is a lot of cabinet short hauls as well as local (10+miles)work hauling just about anything.
On many of the short hauls, I will be the third man installing cabinets. Leave early morning, install, home that evening. There is a very large building going up right now for an Amish granite counter top business less than a mile from my house. I may pick up some of that work.
Right now,I don't know where my first load is coming from, and that is a little scary after buying that pickup and quitting my job. I have always held a tight control on my life and work, and I know that is why I've always had trouble staying right with God. I firmly believe He guided me to do this to learn how to trust Him.
I have only taken a half dozen Sundays off in the last 3 or 4 years. From now on, I'm not working any Sundays and I'll be going to church. It feels really strange just sitting here this morning not working.
After saying all that, there is more going on that is making us trust God more than ever. My wife found out that she has cancer again. They caught it very early and are very positive about treatments knocking it down, but as several of you know, it isn't something that anyone wants to go through.
There has been several times in the past that many of you asked for prayer and that wasn't a part of my life at the time. I am sorry for that now because I realize that is the most important thing we can do.
