It didn't really hit me until this past weekend just how crazy this last year has been. It has been such a blessing to see prayer after prayer answered, but walking through some of it hasn't always been easy.
In the last eight months we have..
Sold our house
Switched houses with friends.
Finished two years of school(ok that was my husband, but I feel like I went through it too!)
Welcomed our fourth child in less than four years.
Had two months of unemployment and no income.
Husband starting a new job.
Found a new house, and are getting ready to move..again.
Moving to a new town about two and a half hours away from our home town. In just about two weeks!
My mother in law tells me she can't keep up with all the changes, and you know what? Neither can I! But through it all the Lord has been faithful. We haven't had a single need go unmet. I've seen prayer after prayer get answered, maybe not always in the way I wanted, but always in the way that was best. I have had to learn some lessons over and over again, because apparently I'm stubborn. Some of these lessons I'll be learning for the rest of my life. But one thing I never want to forget is how faithful God has been. Isn't that amazing? If we are Christians, we can rest in knowing that God will supply all our needs.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?....33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:25-27;33-34
