(I have asked a few pray-ers to be my guest to share their testimony where they invited God in and He showed up and out. Gina was the first brave sister to step up. I am so excited to share her story.)

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;” (Isaiah 43:2-3)
“I can’t Lord” is what I said. I can’t do this without you! I can’t be everything in this season that life is demanding of me without you! I can’t bear the pain of seeing the people I love hurt, struggle, grieve … without you! I trust YOU LORD with them and with all of me.
God knows our needs, has a plan in place, and is waiting for us to ask! The Lord answered the needs of my family in a MIGHTY way.
The Lord prompted me to reach out to a family member about a difficult season our family has been walking through. We needed to convert a portion of our free-standing garage to a small apartment. I shared with him what I felt were our needs. From that point, everything fell into place. Our answer was his response, “Don’t worry about anything. We are going to take care of it and make it as easy on your family as we can.” We were blown away by the kindness of four incredible young men with hearts to serve, who stepped into our lives to help meet the needs of our family. When there seems to be a shortage in everything, God supplied all we needed without delay. The Lord also made provision through an incredible woman, to provide a place for them to stay while they worked on our conversion!
They all have sacrificed for us! They have given their time, skills, and time away from their own families to help meet the needs of our family. We are blown away by God and by these young men (and woman)!
“I CAN” is what I heard the Lord shout into my heart! The love the Lord has shown us, His provision and the hearts of these men have reminded our family that WE CAN…“with GOD all things are possible”. (Matthew 19:26)
I enCOURAGE you to trust God in all things. He has your answer. You “can” with Him.
(Gina is a sister in Christ that I met at church on Prayer Team. Our lives have traveled similar paths. God wove our lives together in an uncanny way. We have common interests, callings, and have experienced so many similar things thought our lives. We ar together for “such a time as this.”)
