It is a huge day for us. Monumental in fact.
It might not sound like a big deal. But for us, this is a huge milestone. We made it!
God has shown Himself to be Provider in so many ways to us. We didn’t know how we would make it to today, but He allowed us to. We wondered how we would pay for the honeymoon, pay bills, and live off of my low income through the summer and August.
But we made it. The Lord brought us through…splendidly. It has been amazing looking back in such a short time and seeing God’s provisions.
He provided us a wonderful house to live in that is just perfect for us, and amazing landlords to go along with it who are great friends and have taken such good care of us.
He provided a fantastic job for Spencer that suits him so well.
He provided a week for us to housesit for friends that helped our electric and grocery bill a ton.
He has given us an amazing church family and community in Jackson who are willing to help in time of need, offer prayer, and show support.
He has used people to bless us with gift cards to be able to buy groceries and eat out.
There have been little, daily things that have happened that have been completely God’s blessings.
The Lord is provider. And He has shown that to us.
He provided what we needed. And we are so grateful. We will always be able to look back at this summer and be reminded of God’s faithfulness, goodness, and provisions. We cannot worry. We cannot doubt. We cannot stress. He is so faithful.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Therefore, I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like on of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is throne into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious saying ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we rink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. –Matthew 6:23-34
