He loves us

God has been showing me something in the last few days. It does not matter if I do not understand why he is not answering my prayers (in the way or timing that I desire). I do not have to understand. My faith can boil down to this- God has saved me. He has forgiven my every sin, cleansed me, and made me a new creation. Not only that, but he is preparing a place for me in heaven, where I will be with Him for eternity. If that were all he did for me- that would be more than enough!!! Maybe it is because one of my "love languages" is "acts of service" but I have a hard time when I am praying and believing & putting my faith out there for something & then I don't see it happen. But the confusion that happens after that is not where I want to dwell. I want to dwell on the goodness and love of God- God demonstrated his own love for us in this, while we were still sinners Christ died for us! Praise God! I do not *need* God to "do" something for me to prove he loves me and cares for me- he has already done it & proved it to me beyond a shadow of a doubt! He loves us- oh yes, he loves us. And I will be contented with that.

Mike had his dental work done- we paid half and will pay the remainer next month. Unfortunately we found out he needs additional dental work done- not good news! We continue to pray and believe for God's provision for all that we believe he has put in our hearts to do. God will take care of us- he always has & always will! He didn't promise we'd be comfortable- just taken care of! :)

We are also planning our TTI banquet for October 24th. This stresses me out and I will continue to pray for someday God to provide an event planner/fund raising coordinator for TTI. Lord let it be! For now, I do it- but thankfully I have some team members to help me out on this.

Thank you for caring (or being curious enough) to read this- post a comment to tell me "hey"! :)
