“And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
Wow! Isn’t that heavy?
Amidst our waiting to close on house number one, we got blessed with another windfall of money, we didn’t expect to get. When Rob changed schools, he found out he hadn’t been getting enough of his earned pay at the other school. This was news to us. We checked one of the deposits from school: his paycheck, and were pleasantly surprised. We know it was God. We shouldn’t have been too surprised to find that the previous school wasn’t doing their jobs properly. We knew they weren’t. Now we know, many of them weren’t.
That being said, we got through paying on a dead horse, I mean, making the monthly payment on the house we have been hearing was “sold”. We have 2 weeks till we go in and sign official papers, bless God, and it will be out of our hair and we will have the monies to get our debts out of our hair too…. God has shown us at least 3 different ways He’s provided for our monies to make the mortgage payments. Amazing. We make our plans, but final outcome IS in God’s hands. (Proverbs)
As time has been going by, we have heard of more terrorist attacks, my acct. on here has had folks from another country putting comments in one area, and they are communicating to each other in a language I can’t read. Keep in mind, while I live out in the country, my internet is slow. I have a button on here where I can translate the messages……Thank God. I translated some. They are weird things about microsoft and word and internet companies. These folks refer to “pressing a button” and who knows what all…..
We hear North Korea wants to bomb America, as do many terrorists. Suicide bombers are bombing places in other countries. Christians are being killed openly, in other countries and some are in America.
We see a big production of The Passion on our televisions. It’s a modern version, but all I could think of was, we in America, are still making big displays of Christ and His death and resurrection. We are thinking of Him and love Him. “If My people, which are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, I’ll…..and heal their land.” YES! Genesis 18: 30 has Abraham begging God to spare Sodom is he can find some righteous people there. He keeps narrowing the number down….God promises to spare the land, though, if he can find some righteous people there…..
We are blessed, by God, to have the ability to go to Easter productions, Easter egg hunts, and to plan big dinners to gather friends and family to share in celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. We know it’s not just about the “bunny”. We are the remnant. God always protects and provides for His remnant.
Hallelujah! (no matter my thoughts about waiting for the rest of the answered prayers…..)
