My husband has been out of work since August 1. Even the job he had didn’t meet all of our expenses. No unemployment benefits are available to him. Tuesday night, I put the last of our money in the gas tank. It’s an incredible thing to have no income. The only thing we can do is depend on God for our needs. God has since sent a check for $25…enough to buy dish soap, laundry detergent and some gas. He’s incredible. He knew these were the things we needed immediately. Thank You Father God! I think we are learning to live by faith in a more real and “desperate for God” way than ever before.
I don’t know your exact situation. If God hadn’t made an incredible way for us to have a place to live in a caretaker’s cottage working off the rent, we’d be out of a home right now. God can provide when it seems impossible. I find that so much of what I experience depends on how I am take things emotionally. True faith comes from true need and true dependence.
Do you know the Lord? He is so much more than church. He is our savior, our redeemer, our hope in hopeless times. He is our provider and healer of the broken hearted. I’d love to tell you more if you’d like to meet Him. Just comment; and, I’ll e-mail you.
Those of you who know Him, I encourage you to really get to know Him through His written word, through prayer, through being still and listening for His still small voice.
God bless you, dear reader! Your family is safe in HIS hands.
