Setback

Friends, would you please keep our family in your prayers? Without divulging too much detail- the gist of life right now is that we'll have no income except my new part time preschool teaching wages for about 3 weeks. There was an issue with my husbands work where he fell through the cracks. It will be resolved, but there will be a hefty fee to be paid to get everything back on track. Things were super tight to begin with and we have no idea how bills will be paid or groceries purchased, nevermiind the fee. Just when I thought things were getting better.... But I know none of this was a surprise to God and that He has us firmly in his hand. I'm much calmer and collected than I imagined I'd be (and he is doing OK too). The situation lends itself to stress all around and I'm back at work for the first time in 6 years plus 2 kids in school with new transitions and needs, so I'm completely drained and already running low on fuel. I'm asking that God will show us clearly what He wants us to learn through this experience and that He will provide a way for us to get through. Thanks!!

Oh Kelly! We will definitely be praying for your family!!! Hold tight to that faith of yours...God will supply all your needs according to HIS glorious riches in Christ Jesus our Lord (Phil 4:19). You can take that promise to the bank!!! Love ya!

Ironically, I was going to share the same scripture as Tara...so it must be a word from the Lord! I truly believe that He will supply all of your needs. Just continue to tithe through the storm and He promises to provide. We will most DEFINITELY be lifting you up in prayer, too! Hang in there, my friend!!

Sending lots of love and hugs your way!! <><

Sending you a HUGE hug.

Have faith Kelly! Your world is rocking right now, but hold on tight and God will see you through. It's His specialty ... and remember how not so long ago He brought you through a tough time with your interviews only to bring you to something better. I can feel for your anxiety though! ... cast it onto God if you can. He wants you to. We'll be praying for you! And waiting for the upside of all of this!!

It is an honor and privilege to battle with you in prayer. The Lord truly is our Provider and I will be claiming His promises over your precious family.

May you be drenched in His unfailing love today,
