I must say the last week has been truly amazing! If you read my last post, you know that God brought me to a crisis of belief and He hasn’t stopped there. It was last Wednesday, and the following Friday we received the remaining part of our federal tax refund. I had to file an amendment to our return because I found another form and needed to file it, resulting in another $1000 refund. We knew it was coming, but the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
Then to top it off, last Tuesday I entered Karlie in a contest for an entire prom package. A couple days prior to this, Jeff and I were talking about how we didn’t know how we were going to be able to afford for Karlie to go to prom this year. It’s her Senior year and neither of us wanted her to miss out. A day or two later I saw this post on She Scribes, so I emailed the company with our story.
A couple of days later, I got an email from them saying Karlie was chosen as a finalist in the contest! I was ecstatic. I kept receiving emails from the company having the giveaway telling us to have Karlie pick out some dresses and shoes from this site and asking about her prom details. Yesterday, I received a phone call and it was the gal from Kymaro. She needed to know what Karlie was going to say if she was to be interviewed by the news media and so on, so I gave Karlie my phone. We were at church waiting for youth group to start at the time, so Karlie went to the kitchen so she could hear. A few minutes later she came running down the hall shouting, “I won!!! I won!!!!” I was shocked!!! Literally!!! And everyone at youth group was asking “What’d ya win???” and “You won what???” It was so much fun and so exciting!!!
I know it’s totally God’s way of providing for us and her. Not only does she get a dress, shoes, and jewelry, she also gets a makeover with hair color cut and style, manicure, pedicure, prom tickets paid for and limo ride to and from prom for her and her boyfriend! How cool is that! The hair color is alone is a huge blessing to us because Karlie and I need our hair done and I was wondering where we were going to get the money for that.
God is so awesome and Jeff and I know it’s just the beginning of His amazing provision. We’ve both felt it in our spirits that things were going to turn around for us financially, for His glory!
If you have faith of a mustard seed, you can move mountains. (Matt. 17:20) My faith is growing and growing and becoming stronger and stronger. God is always at work around us. I have faith and am ready to adjust my life and to be obedient to His calling.
How have you sensed or seen God moving in your life?
