We had been praying and fasting the past couple of weeks - finances, need I say more?...then we found out that Brad will be out of work for 2 1/2 months due to minor surgery. Did I mention we are only an one income family?! the first thing I did was panic. Then we decided to fast and pray. And it was just into a few days of this that I began to feel a total release and God's hand beginning to move. I Praise Jesus the mountains are moving. If you are feeling overwhelmed, and you have no idea what you are going to do or where the finances are going to come from, or how God can make a way where there is no way, pray...and keep praying. DON'T GIVE UP! There are mountains to be moved! People to be saved! Healing to be received! Children to be brought home!

For us, He is teaching us to stand and fight.

For you, God knows what your struggle is and He is mindful of YOU. He knows you. Everything about you and your situation. I just wanted to share the Bible scriptures in Isaiah that have been a blessing to me recently. I've also been reading in the beginning of Joshua where God's people battled for the Promised Land as they stood in obedience. I Pray these will be a blessing to you. I won't write them out as they are too long...please look them up and believe that God's hand is for you, not against you. Stand firm! (Ephesians 6:14-18)
