We continue to pray & trust God to provide for us. It can be a bit perplexing- as we have no idea how our personal support will increase or be taken care of (we do not have churches lined up to speak at or any personal fundraisers); however, we know that God knows our needs and he is more than able to take care of all that we need.
We had a blessing in the mail today. We got a refund check of $145 from our home insurance company. Somehow we overpaid the insurance, so praise God for the refund check coming at the right time! :)
It made me think of Elijah in Kings 18, where there had been no rain and God told Elijah to tell King Ahab that it was going to rain. Elijah went away to pray for the rain. He sent his servant to look for a sign of rain, but six times he came back saying there was nothing there. The seventh time he said, "A cloud as small as a man's hand is rising from the sea." It wasn't long after that when the "sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain came on".
I think of our $145 check today as that "cloud as small as man's hand"... it is a sign that the "rain" is coming! We are taken care of right now, and although our needs are still great, our God is greater!
Believe with us for the "rain" of God's provision that is on it's way! (ha ha - it rained here today after many days of dry weather too!)
P.S. If you know of anyone who is looking for a great way to learn spelling, I found a program we love & so I signed up to be an affiliate with "All About Spelling". It makes it so simple - everything is clear! Great for homeschoolers, or for parents who want to work on their kid's spelling over the summer, or for adults who want to finally learn the reasons "why" we spell words the way we do! Love it! Any purchases through this link will give me credit too. :) Thanks!
