Stay strong

Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” My work is seasonal and can be extremely burdensome through Thanksgiving and Christmas. We should be saving throughout the year but my wife and I make just enough to get by and have maybe a tiny bit extra. This little extra usually gets used up on life’s expenditures like car fix it’s or kids. Even though we own a couple businesses we don’t make a lot of money. We believe that everyone should be able to fix or beautify their home and not feel gouged when we are done with them. Keeping your faith through this time can feel exhausting and take forever for funds to come in. Every year our patience grows stronger and our faith strengthens. If you feel like it your finance won’t improve and you start doubting things will change, it’s because you are being tested by Satan. It is super important to stay close to God in prayer and include others. Often times we can feel ashamed that we can’t be the provider that we are meant to be. Remember that God ultimately is our provider and everything will work out. Humble yourself today, grab your spouse and kids even and kneel in prayer. Heavenly father, thank you for all that you have provided for our family. You know the financial burdens that we are in and place them in your hands. We trust that you will lead us through our troubled times and provide for all of our needs. Thank you for ALWAYS answering our prayers! In Jesus precious name AMEN.
