God is good, all the time!

Want to hear something truly amazing! We have a volunteer group that arrived yesterday,(Tuesday) from Shelbyville, Tennessee to work at the church. When we requested the group to come we did not know, and they did not know, what tasks would need to be completed once they arrived on site. On Monday Jack went to pick up the kitchen cabinets from Silsbee. This is one of the last things to be completed in our Family Life Center. The amazing thing is, on Tuesday, Jack found out that these volunteers are experts at installing cabinets, having done this many times on church work projects in the U.S. and in foreign countries. God knew exactly what we needed and then provided. God is SO good!

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:19

At peace with God's plan

It's been a great week! I am finding that I am becoming more and more at peace all the time with God's overall plan for our family. I think the older we get the more difficult it becomes to accept changes in our lives, especially when they are sudden unexpected changes, such as losing a job, a loved one, or losing anything that is precious to you. But the past few months have taught me that I need to be more willing and ready to embrace the changes in my life and trust God to get me through it. Everyone will tell you that "this happened for a reason" and that "God has something better for you", but it's really tough to believe that when you are right in the midst of it all. But once again, I find myself looking back at the events of my life and marveling at God's faithfulness and provision.
