Thank you guys....
They, and We, will survive. The good news is they are in a rental house.... (It could be worse....they could be living out of a suitcase!) God has blessed them in other ways. And Gail I have to completely agree with you! Sometimes God puts us through a storm ; but there is always
sun on the other side. I think we can all relate to this when I say there have been many times in my life where I thought it was impossible to go on. Each time, I was convicted to call out to God for help. And guess what? He ALWAYS
gave me the strength to move on. God will always take care of you, and always keep his promises. It might not be today...or tomorrow...next week, next month or even next year; but he will get you through it.
Just trying to remember that...its sometimes hard to take your own advice.
Reminds me of one of my favorite songs...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAVHeVDML5k
“1 Give thanks to the Lord and pray to him.
Tell the nations what he has done.
2 Sing to him; sing praises to him.
Tell about all his miracles.
3 Be glad that you are his;
let those who seek the Lord be happy.
4 Depend on the Lord and his strength;
always go to him for help.
5 Remember the miracles he has done;
remember his wonders and his decisions.
6 You are descendants of his servant Abraham,
the children of Jacob, his chosen people.
7 He is the Lord our God.
His laws are for all the world.
8 He will keep his agreement forever;
He will keep his promises always.”
- Psalm 105, Verses 1-8 (New Century Version, quotes, italics, and bold mine)
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
