Faith, Love, Hope...

 

This has been an exciting month! My family has been waiting for many answered prayers; we must have sent up so many prayers that God had to organize a whole bunch of people, places and things to get us what we needed! Our God is an awesome God and He can do anything!

So many prayers have been answered I cant even begin to try to explain them all. But, I can tell you that none of the prayers came just like we thought they would, they came even better!

Have you ever heard the scripture that says Be still and know that I am God. I have learned to apply this to my life, this is my faith. I hear this scripture and I see God is telling me to give my problems to Him (pray) and wait on Him to put it together. Sometimes we don't want to wait, we want it now. But, what I have learned is when our Father in Heaven wants to give us something; He doesnt give it to us like we think we should have it because He knows what we really need.

Through waiting on God to answer my families prayers we had to continue to have faith, even though it seemed impossible for all that we needed to be fixed. We had to still behave like we would if we had everything we wanted in life. Just because our life seemed to be turned upside down didnt mean we could act bad towards other people. We still had to love and we still had to endure through the tough time with hope to see the outcome on the other side.

1 Corinthians 13:13 Three things will last forever- faith, hope, and love- and the greatest of these is love.

Not only did God just answer our prayers, He decided to go ahead and do them all in a couple of weeks! That is pretty overwhelming, when you have been praying for years. But, I can tell you that you know for sure it is God! He also love us so much He threw in some bonuses, just some hearts desires that we didnt dare ask for cause we had bigger things we needed taken care of . Our God is so good and I am so overwhelmed at how much He loves us.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
