laid off.

I debated about sharing this. But since I want this blog to be a real reflection of my life, and since I often use it to process things a bit, or even just to note the things that I want to remember, I'm going to go ahead and say it.

I'm getting laid off. My last day with my company is just under two weeks away.

There are so many emotions that I'm still trying to sort through them. And, of course, the prevalent emotion changes from minute to minute. But at least right now, here's where I am.

The day I first got the heads up that this would likely happen (last week), that night as I was getting ready for bed and feeling about a million different things all at the same time, I heard the voice of God so clearly that it quite literally stopped me in my tracks.

"This is it, Kristy, this is the moment of truth," He said. "Do you really believe that I am who I say I am and that I will do what I say I will do? Because this is where what you really believe shows up in your life."

As I thought more about that, I realized something very clearly. There are only two possibilities here. Ether all of the promises of God are true - that He loves me, that He will take care of my needs, that He has a plan and a purpose for me, that He works all things for my good - either that is all true, or everything I've built my life on since I was five years old is utter crap and I might as well crawl into bed and give up.

I'm choosing the first.


  1. Kristy. Thank you for sharing your emotion and your raw thought. i am praying with you on this. I know that God will provide but i totally understand your feeling about whether or not he will. The weird thing is that I totally believe it for you but for myself, i doubt that more often. Love you! Kate

  2. So sorry to hear this news about your job, Kristy. But also, I'm excited for your decision to trust God with it and I am confident He will see you through it! Can't wait to find out where He will take you next and what you will learn along the way. Praying for you, Lori
