God is looking out... ALWAYS

So this semester has only been like virtually 2 weeks and God has rocked our world already!!

We have been faithful in our giving and our quiet times and God is being faithful back. We decided that even though my income was nonexistent that we would continue to give the same in our tithing/giving, just being challenged by the church giving and see how far we can stretch out faith.

So when we thought we would be wracking up small debt this semester.. we end up being taken care of. One of my family members that lives out of state sent us an offering (just because they felt led to use part of their giving this month to bless us- they had no idea of our financial situation), then we got a check from our insurance company (still looking into why haha but was pretty amazing- haven't cashed it yet haha)...

then we find out that Jeremiah's car accident case was randomly settled and they are giving us enough to pay off some loans (ahh yay!)

and THEN... we called the student loan place to pay Jeremiah's monthly student loan bill and we asked about pushing our payments back to the end of each month and they asked about out situation and they told us that for a really small penalty fee we can forebear our payments until August when both of us are working!!! NO WAY!!

So just when I wasn't sure where all the money for our bills, food... living.. was going to come from.. God comes through ALL in 2 weeks and gives us exactly what we need to stay up in finances and maybe even be able to save some for a rainy day..

It's always encouraging to share that with people and to remind myself that God will work things out. He might not always work this way, or in this way but He reminds me daily that He has His best interest in mind.

Amen! Jeff and I have found over and over again, when we are faithful in what we give Him... He is always faithful in what He gives us! Somehow it blows our minds each and every time though!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29;11

Interesting that this verse is in "Jeremiah". It's my favorite!
