Stepping out in faith.....

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee,
Who from the heavens the streams of  His mercy doth send thee.
    Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
Who with His love doth befriend thee.

(Stanza 4 from Praise to the Lord, the Almighty)
(thank you, Ms. Dawn)


Good-bye, Old Friend!!!

This past Saturday, we sold Izzy.
It was completely a God-thing the way it happened.
A young couple needed a car.....
God told us to sell them ours....
at a ridiculously low price.
They couldn't afford to pay us the entire amount....
promised to pay us weekly until they could get the balance.
We signed the title over....
and Izzy was driven out of our driveway and I had to fight back tears.
(I tried to remove the little red bird, but she was stuck)
Later on Saturday evening, I received a call from the buyer.
His Aunt....
who is our friend.....
wanted to pay us what we had asked and let her nephew pay her back.
Pappy and I were overwhelmed at how God provided....
all because we stepped out in faith and did what He asked!!!

Ephesians 3:20
Now all glory to God, 
who is able, 
through his mighty power at work within us, 
to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb

  3. Don't you love it when God fully displays his faithfulness?!? A perfect example of Luke 6:38, right there!
