It's been awhile.....

Honestly, I wonder how many of my posts are titled like that? I seem to lack in the blogging department. Oh well! Life is busy and that is good. These days are so fleeting.

I wanted to share about the Lord providing us a car. Our little gas saver blew up and Troy couldn't fix it without sinking a lot of money in it. It was hurting us pretty bad driving the truck and 15 passenger van everywhere. Well, the Lord knew about it and laid it on someone's heart to give us money to buy a car. When this man offered I said, Wow! I then went on to tell him about the $800 car I found that needed some work. He said no I want you to get something nicer than that. He ended up giving us $3500 to buy a car. It is a nicer car than we could have afforded for sure. We couldn't even afford the $800 car. What an awesome God we serve to take care of our needs exceedingly above all that we ask or think. We are now enjoying our new little car!

Also we had out tent meetings in Griswold this past weekend and they were great! I can tell you that it has been awesome to remember that God loves me and cares about me. It has changed my relationship with Him. It is out of my love for Him that I serve Him and do good works. I can do nothing of myself but in Christ He does good works through me. I think one of the greatest ways He does that is to remind us of His love for us! I am His daughter and He loves me!!! I want to please Him. I want to live my life for Him. I know some that serve Him out of fear and I can tell you that it didn't work for me. I do fail daily, not willingly but daily and with the Lord being portrayed as wanting to strike me down each time I fail I couldn't even pray to Him. Yes, I went through a hard time, a desert time maybe you could say. I felt the Lord was as far off as He had ever been. Maybe I was in the wilderness, all I know is that I was alone and had forgotten that Jesus LOVES ME! Praise the Lord for His mercy and for showing me again that He has never left me, I was just blinded for awhile. I continue to grow in His love. I am being fed well spiritually and seek to continue to learn to be more like Jesus! I hope these are your feelings as well. Have a blessed weekend serving the Lord!
