We are so grateful for the pound and provisions we have. We have always just made it, but sometimes it seems that God is in the impossibility business. The last two months have been the tightest we have been for a long time. We really need to be praying by faith over our finances even more so. We work at walking by faith and knowing that He cares for us in this mission field.
We really need to start praying over our mission field as well and give more of it to Him and not on our own doing. Being on Sabbatical has been eye-opening. Really learning to count on Him more and less on us.
We have worked really great jobs, made some really great money along the way, in fact, making all that money, really didn't make us happier than we are now. One blessing that we have experienced this year is that we have paid off almost all our debts and we have been able to save, however, in the past two months because of not working like we were at a Campground and taking a Sabbatical, we have learned to rely on Him more so.
We are NOT complaining at all here, just praying over finances and future finances, but then I am reminded by this little scripture or two:
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 NKJV
