For almost 11 weeks now I have written once a week and posted in this blog. What you don’t know is that when God started speaking to me about this blog, I told Him he would have to definitely make a way!
You see the blog cost, I have no internet or cable service, nor do I have Wi-Fi. I am a single mom, my AC unit broke a few months ago with an expensive repair bill and I had two expensive electric bills of $300 each back to back, due to the AC issue. All of this wiping out my checking and savings accounts! There was no way possible that I could afford to do this blog! But God!!!!
I told God to let me know what I was to do, that I needed a sign. I just couldn’t see taking my last bit of money to put the details of my ugly life out for the world to see; especially when I needed the money to use elsewhere. But in church that Sunday morning, Pastor Jim preached a message about “Living a Blessed Life – Overcoming Mammon”. Oh this spoke right to me!
You see I learned that day that I am to give and sow into others for God. And I am to stretch and share around the world and start serving where I can and trust Him! I can’t fulfill my destiny or call when I am loyal to Mammon. I must be a good stewart of finances and if I honor God where I am, He will bring promotion.
After hearing this message I knew without a shadow of doubt what I was to do. I came home, used my phone internet to pay for the blog. I had no clue how to set it up or where to even begin. I was completely lost! I tried to figure it out with no luck. So the next day during my lunch break I called the help desk. They said I was good to go but I still couldn’t see my website. I tried for a couple of days and got discouraged. But God woke me at 3:00 am on the third day and said now try. I told Him, it will not work that I had tried several times, He said I told you to try it now! Guess what!! I got up, signed into the site and things flowed perfectly and I issued my first sample post! Oh my goodness, I was beyond excited! After the blog was set up by using my cell phone; out of nowhere I was now able to connect to Wi-Fi with my tablet and with my daughters laptop. And I still continue to be able to connect to God’s Wi-Fi when I write for Him! Praise God!
God provides, we just need to trust Him and be obedient. He not only provides but gives us the desires of our heart. You see I have always wanted to see New York City, especially at Christmas time. And guess what?!!! He provided a way and just last weekend I was walking the streets of the big city. He is good!
All this should not be possible but with God the impossible is possible! Trust me, satan is fighting but so am I !
My life isn’t perfect and no I don’t have all the finer things in life; but I am full of joy, peace and love. That my friends is better than all of the gold in this world! The joy of the Lord is my strength…..In Him I Trust!
I know my future is going to be absolutely amazing as I remain obedient to God! Send me Father, I will go! I can hardly wait to travel for God with my Boaz……#speakingintoexistence
Matthew 6:24 -No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve Gid and mammon.
Luke 16:9-13 – And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home. He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s , who will give you what is your own? “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with money sorrows.
Colossians 3:23 – And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men
1 Corinthians 4:1-2 – Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewarts of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.
Matthew 5:8 – Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Titus 2:7 – in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility
God Loves You and I Love You!
Much love to you all… peace & joy be with you
