In the midst of my troubles, the Lord gently spoke this verse to my heart as I drove the kids home from school today. As we drove south and looked west to the Rockies, I quoted that verse to my kids and afterwards I said, “remember that every time you look at the mountains.” I was choking back tears as I spoke that Scripture to them because at the same time I was teaching my kids, the Lord was speaking to my heart to trust Him.
He knows I have been struggling. He knows I’m thinking about selling my truck, so we can pay bills. He knows I was struggling to write a single word today because of discouragement. My wife is working late tonight at the school, so it has just been the kids and I hanging out. I was doing the dishes and I was thinking about calling the guy I know at the Chevy dealership in Aurora. I was also thinking about listing my truck on Craigslist for at least $25K. As I was thinking about these things while I loaded the dishwasher, I heard the Lord speak softly to me, “Don’t sell your truck. I will make a way.” As is the Lord’s way with me, He nudged me to repeat out loud what I had heard, so I did and said, “Don’t sell your truck. I will make a way.” I just smiled and said, “Okay Lord, your will be done.”
I don’t know what God is doing folks. Celiac has really been beating me up lately and we are struggling financially, but I know He is going to make a way somehow. I have been praying for a breakthrough for almost 7 years. I trust what He told me today. He reminded me to lift up my eyes to the hills and remember where my help comes from. He touched my heart to the point of tears and I am humbled and encouraged.
Where does your help come from? I hope it is from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth! He loves you more than you can imagine!
Grace and peace to you all!
