God's Faithfulness

I've been thinking about God's faithfulness lately.

You see, our church is in the middle of a series of miracles as we prepare to move to a new site in the next 18 months. Not something we sought -- but a highway coming through the sanctuary kind of makes it necessary.

It means we're in the middle of a building campaign and are being challenged as a congregation to dig deep as God moves us.

As a result, I've been thinking about the many times in my life God has been faithful to meet needs in big ways.

One I've ruminated on is college. Seven years of higher education is expensive. Crazily so for most people. But through a series of good choices and God's amazing intervention I was blessed to graduate without debt. That's given Eric and me such freedom. The freedom to make my children a priority. The freedom to invest in them through homeschooling. The freedom to respond to needs when God places them in front of us.

How has God shown you His faithfulness? And if you wonder...if you have a hard time seeing His hand and His faithfulness...remember the words of the Psalmist in Psalm 100:
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

It's great that you were able to do that. College can be so expensive and set people back to as much as half a million. Great picture.

This is a good reminder; I've been thinking a lot about this very topic as well!

To combat feelings of frustration or anxiety I have over our current income/jobs/paying-for-our-daughter's-college-education, I just remind myself that somehow, some way it will all work out for good, even when I can't see it in the moment.

And I've started making a point of writing down at least five things God has done to care for us, every night before I go to bed.

Heather, thanks for the comment on the hair :-) A girl always likes to hear that.

And Holly, I love the idea of writing down five things a night that God has done. It's so easy to miss the many ways He moves in our lives.
