Are we going to make it?

I have been missing for sometime... but this summer has been INSANE.

In my post "Why am I like this?" I mentioned that we had a crisis at the beginning of the Summer.

Now, that we have moved past it and it is not so fresh I will share.

J suddenly lost his job.

As you may know I stay at home with Ethan, I love it!

I get to really have the opportunity to invest in Ethan and be the one to teach him and instill his love for Jesus.

So it was frightening to think I would lose this.

J was applying and applying. He has so much experience and great work record. But nothing seemed to work out.

Apprehensive does not exactly cover the emotions we were feeling.

But, we serve a mighty God. And we claim to have faith.

So our faith was put into action in a big way.

As our heavenly father always does, he turned something we thought was the beginning of  the end into a Summer of fun and some learning too.

I learned something over this last almost two years. To really trust God. Like really.

To me that looks like... not freaking out that we do not have an income. Staying faithful in our commitments even when are feeling down. Pushing pass our flesh and praising God anyway.



We are faithful in our tithes. And the word says that he will bless us ten fold for giving what he deserves.

In Proverbs 3:9-10 it says...
"Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine"

It is completely true. And we are living proof. Today was our very first paycheck since the beginning of JUNE! (for only one day...but I'm not complaining LOL)

We are not behind on anything. There have been no late notices. Nothing.

Because of our faith and faithfulness proved that my God keeps his promises.

Every time we needed something God opened a door to make money so we could make a bill.

I am so extremely thankful.

That is not all that God has done.

We have resigned as Jr High Youth Leaders at our church after seven years of serving in that ministry. We have loved and enjoyed being with all of our kids, who are by the way graduated from High school (some of them)!

God has moved us... but that is for another post.

I promise it wont be so long in between.

All my Love,
LaLa

  1. Oh my! I am so sorry! I had no idea. I am so thankful you have seen God move and provide for your precious family and have been able to enjoy the time together as a family this summer. I would not trade these last few years with my kids for anything after years of being gone from them so much. It was difficult at times, but I can't regret any of it! Hugs, friend!
