When I was growing up you never knew when someone might shout out in a church service and say "God is good!" Then everyone else would shout back "All the time!" I just have to give a huge shout out to God today. He is so good. It has been a big week-end for us. If you have been following me you may know that we have been given a short period of time to get out of the house we are currently renting and had been trouble finding a new house and getting our financing. Well, as of this weekend we have our financing and are in the works on purchasing a beautiful home! God really worked it all out so perfectly- as He always does. We are not all the way there, but I am giving Him thanks and praise for what He has already done and in advance for what I know He is able to do.
Today is also my son's 10th birthday! It's hard to believe that I could have a ten year old son, time sure does fly. I pray everyday that I will be able to be a Godly example to Him and raise Him to love and serve God.
Also, my in-laws are in town for a short visit- and yes, that is a praise report I have amazing in-laws. They came up because my husband was ordained into ministry yesterday. It was such a great service. My husband and I have been involved in ministry of some kind for our entire marriage and we were both involved in ministry before that as well. I am so very proud of him and his heart for the Lord and for people. I don't think I'll start calling him Pastor though. :-)
What I know and firmly believe is that the Lord is faithful.
Philippians:19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
Just a few verses up from there it says:
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
So, what do you need, what are you worrying about instead of praying for? Tell God what you need and don't forget to THANK HIM for what He has done. No matter what you are going through no matter what we face, there is always something to be thankful for.

Thank you Lord for all you have done and all you have provided!
