Brothers and Sisters,
My wife of almost five years and I are expecting our second child this spring. We are blessed with a 2YO boy and the new baby is a girl! I thank God everyday for the many blessings He gives to me, my wife and our family.
I have to admit that I am thinking, worrying and extremely anxious about the future. We are blessed that my wife can stay home with our children while I financially support our family.
I keep praying over and over “I Trust the Lord with all my heart and mind” and I re-read the scripture which states “Do not worry about tomorrow, tomorrow will take care of itself.” Mat7:34, yet my mind continues to keep thinking about how I will provide for my growing family. I currently have a civilian goverment contract position, but it’s only good for another 24 months. On my bad days, my wife says I look very sad during what should be a great and blessed time in our life. To the fathers out there who provide(d) for your growing families, how did you or do you avoid falling into the evil of worrying about the future? Ever since we found out about our second baby I seem to think more about our uncertain financial future than the blessed present day.
Any advice on how to cope and definately your prayers would be a great help to me. Thank you.
