With everything going on this week’s Weighing the Word post is getting shuffled to next week. I just need to fast and pray today. I know that our family is undergoing an extreme period of testing right now – immediate and extended.
My cousin is having to make some tough decision regarding her finances and her husband’s funeral this week. Her son is struggling with all of the Senior Year activities he is having to rearrange, cancel or make alternate plans to participate in this week. And this morning after we offered what we could to my cousin in support yesterday… The full weight of this week is upon us. We have housing payment due this coming week, my girls each have summer college tuition due by Sunday, and to top it off this morning the car is not running as it should be. This and we are just coming out of paying our taxes…
Oh, the joy of it all. (I’m really not being sarcastic… Last night I was telling my cousin we just have to trust God and His plan even when things don’t look the way we think they should…. Talk about a test!) This is a test, this is only a test.
So, I’m enlisting my friends, my Sisters-in-“Arms” and my prayer warriors to go to battle for us this morning – Praying in Agreement. We are in desperate need of relief and an answer in so many ways.
Lord, we trust in You – the God who is Provision – and we surrender our own will and ideas of how this should work out to you. You alone are good and You alone have the solution to our problems to be sure. We believe that You will act, You will not delay and that Your provision will be sufficient to meet every need emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. That’s just the kind of God You are and You always take care of Your own. Thank you for always hearing and answering our prayers, Lord God. We will trust in You. We will trust in You. In Christ’s name I pray, Amen.
