God is so Good..
What a blessing of a week we just had.  We went to the Christian Alliance for Orphan Summit in MN.  I will write about that on another post. I am still on FIRE from all that. I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  We had some huge ($700)donations from some friends and family.  God uses and works through everyday people to carry out His plan.  He is always there on the missions he gives us.  We are so thankful .  It's a great testimony of how faithful God is.  We have been giving & tithing  more than we have ever done before. I can honestly say looking at the books and bills It's only God that has brought us thus far and it is such a great feeling.   He knows our weaknesses ahead of time. He overcomes them in His might because we’re not able to do His will without Him. It’s important to remember that a Christian does not live life in his or her own power. We depend upon the power of God, in the form of the Holy Spirit to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. We rely on God to overcome the challenges that are in the way of accomplishing His work, knowing that He is right there with us (even when it doesn’t feel like He is) in order to bring Him glory.
 God knows we doubt Him, because it’s part of our sinful nature. But He’s given us plenty of promises in His Word to stand on, as well as the experience of His hand in our lives to prove that He’ll bring victory time and time again. 
Father God, thank You for pushing us out of our comfort zones in order to do Your work. Thank You for being with us during those times, clearing the path and giving us the ability to do what You call us to do. Please remove any fear, doubt selfishness, or shame from our hearts to make room for Your Spirit, glory, courage, and especially faith. May all we do be for You, and may we never forget that we serve You before ourselves or the world. In name of Jesus Christ, Amen
