Singing Praises...



God is so.. good.


We already know that God is good, it is evident all around our lives. But sometimes he takes us off guard with His goodness, He surprises us when we least expect it. Today is one of those days.

I am a worrier. I spend a lot of time repenting for worrying and not trusting God when I know that He is beyond trustworthy. We are in the process of raising funds for our three Ethiopian children. It is a lot of money and we need it in a short period of time. I have spent several days praying for the needs of our children and for the money we need to bring them home. Bryan, myself and 2 other friends have committed to fasting and prayer until these needs are met.
My friend and I were discussing Daniel and he prayed and fasted for strongholds to be broken and they were. All this to say that the Lord is faithful to give us what we need, all we have to do is ask.

Today I called to see if we had raised any funds. The lady at the NPO had said that she didn't see anything but she thought that we had, she asked to call me back. When she returned my call, she said, hesitantly, that we had raised $5000!!! I was in shock and I think she was too. This was just one donor!! What a blessing, thank you friends for obeying God. This is a miracle, not to mention, completely unexpected. All together we have raised $5,335 !!! Thank you for all of your prayers. We are praising God for His provisions. We are well on the way to bring our children home!!

God is so.. good!!
