After years of waiting on the Veterans Administration to finalize their end of the paperwork, things have finally begun moving forward very quickly and that is bringing a lot of good news!
We have been operating on faith for a long time – committing ourselves to full time ministry without any salary- knowing that God would take care of things as we needed them. Without going into a bunch of very personal details, suffice it to say that, yet again, God has come through in an amazing way! Just when we needed Him to- and in a much more perfect way than I could have ever planned it on my own- He’s come through. In fact, He has never failed to provide (though we have been scared to death a few times).
The life of faith is quite the roller coaster! Sometimes it is full of surprising fun. Other times it seems like the ride will never get started and you are stuck slowly climbing to the top of the obstacle in front of you. And yes, there are times where your stomach drops to the ground many feet below and you wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into. It is definitely a roller coaster and isn’t for the faint-of-heart, but as with all great rides: IT IS SO WORTH IT!
Philippians 4:19 (NLT)
“19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
