Default Big Changes

I hope this is the right place to put this. I haven't been on any forums much lately because of everything going on.

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.

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 (this is my last week). 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.



After saying all that, there is more going on that is making us trust God even more. My wife found out that she has cancer again (3rd time). 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. Don't know when her first treatment is yet.

My wife seems to be handling all this better than me. I'm alternating between scared and numb, but still trying to support her as much as I can.

Sounds like you have taken a giant leap of faith, in more ways than one. If you are following a dream then go where ever it may lead and may great things come your way.....and they will. Don't worry about going to church every Sunday. After all, who is doing God's work more the one who is in church all of the time or the one who is helping others out in the community and working on Sunday isn't a sin either, every pastor/reverend does it! The best place to hold church service is in your heart, not in a building.

I will keep your wife, you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. News like what your family has received is hard to take, no matter how many times you have BTDT. It sounds like you are on the right track with turning your life around and the difference will be more noticeable to others than to you. When life hands you more than you can stand, try kneeling!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
