I'm taking full advantage of this opportunity to post:
My husband and I were struggling hard with the florida bar - he went to law school, graduated, passed the bar, and had problems with his law school application - a real mess.
Needless to say, we were struggling with our marriage and money as well since we waited almost 2 years for the fight with the bar to pass. I prayed to God as hard as I could, and each time that we thought we were getting out of the mess, we'd get pushed back down. I couldn't understand the reasoning. We didn't buy a house or have a family because we didn't want to do something we weren't prepared for since we never knew what would happen.
In thanking God to help me with strength and patience to go on, he kept me with 2 friends who helped me pray and helped me keep my faith. They always told me it's not happening in my time, it's God's time. They always were willing to go to church with me, pray with me, give me advice - to keep me with God.
Not only did God bless my husband with his bar license, he placed us in a small town away from the hustle and bustle of a big city (we want to raise our kids in a small city just like the one we were placed in) and gave my husband a fantastic State Attorney job which allows me to go to school full time and focus on me!!
I put my husband through law school, worked as hard and as long as I had to, put my body through hell, sacrificed, screamed and cried, but God knew all along where I would be. And I praise him for our life!!!
Now I just need to find a church in this area (which will be perhaps easy since there are more churches and chapels than anything here) so I can praise him right!
