Wow! We need an updated family photo! =)
Just over 7 years ago, my husband and I began the process of being obedient to the will of God for our lives. In unity. We got married and stopped living in sin.
Since then it has been a arduous process of back and forth, success and failure, in our daily walk with God. As individuals, a couple and a family. Times have been good, bad and indifferent!
It’s been a life, spent well, in the diligence of discipline.
We have persevered with tenacity to control our actions, emotions and impulses. As well as, simply get things in our lives and selves in right standing with God!
We have pursued righteousness. And trust me! There is more, much more to do. We, like everyone else, will know we have made it when we see Jesus, face to face.
In my search for God’s Voice this morning I found this scripture: Genesis 41:47
47 “Now in the seven plentiful years the ground brought forth abundantly.”
July 2009, marks 7 years that my husband and I have been on our journey, together. True to His Word, God is having “our Ground” bring forth our fruits abundantly.
Mid-July it seriously began, however, in fear and misunderstanding, we delayed the consistant flow a bit. Thanking God that He knows His children and was not surprised or disappointed. He knew His plans for us. Jeremiah 29:11
So here is the list that began in mid-July:
1. Don’s boss told him he was sending workers to measure our roof and have it replaced!
2. I won 2 writing contests and received 2 nice paychecks from Helium.
3. My pay at work began to come in more regularly.
4. All this time our bills were being paid, we don’t know how we managed it!
5. A friend of one of the boys came and informed him that his father was looking to develope the land on Chapel Street.
~ now this one is a confirmation on what God told me about 2 years ago! ” they are coming for the house!” when I heard that I knew to hear it and trust God, so I told Don.
6. Don’s boss confirmed that he was going to take care of the roof.
7. Don gave a testimony at church! Yay! Don, it was his first!
8. A publisher bought an article from me! Praise, Honor and Glory to God! (Yesterday!!!)
9. And now…my new keyboard is in!!! Confirming that I am to continue to write.
So where is 10? you ask. Right around the corner I say!!!!
We put numbers on lists, essentially limiting God. However His abundance is limitless.
Abundance was described as: more abundantly in the bible! More abundantly! So I am leaving the 10th to God!
Check out how Abundance is described in the Bible:
7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
8 They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house,
And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
9 For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might[a] have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
God intends to fulfill every promise He gave to us, contained within the Bible, for each and every one of us! Everyone, the believer and the un-believer alike. It is for each of us.
