122- Following God’s Trail – #4
Feb 16, 1984 – Elim called—we’re IN!
What relief came over us! They are concerned about our financial status. Dan assured them we have enough money for one year. They were relieved. They are working on housing for us. Dan intends to fly out—Judy said: “You’ll find we’re like a family here!” THAT WAS JUST THE MESSAGE GOD GAVE US THROUGH PAUL!!
Danny & Lynn need to sell their house in order to buy our house.
Lima Christian School called us. It would cost $100 a month to send Tim to kindergarten there. Lord, please provide.
I read Karen my entire prayer list and she wrote it down so she and I will be praying the same things.
Feb 24 – Somebody said he did not think we would be going to NY till summer. I am still recovering from this! I wanted so much to get organized, settled, find a new doctor in our new town in time for our baby’s birth. I’m having a hard time adjusting to the possibility of that this is true.
Dan will fast M-W for many issues.
All of January and February Dan has been mightily praying and seeking God’s will. He had felt God said at the end of February he would have all the answers. That seemed like ages ago, and here it is upon us.
One of my librarian friends offered monthly support through a club she belongs to.
I guess if we stay here in Reno till summer God has His definite reasons. I am asking for a promise for this baby, so I can rest about that. I want to know the verse is from God.
Feb 25 –Meet with Judy Smith about USCWM. (more on USCWM later) I perceived that the Lord has yet some work to do here in Reno that may involve us spreading the vision of the need of the unreached peoples of the world.
This morning I saw clearly that I did not necessarily want His will to be done, but MY WILL to be done. I repented, and was greatly blessed. Now I am asking, “Reveal Your will and purpose so we can know we belong here longer and make arrangements accordingly.”
Am I waffling or just staying flexible? I just hope the house will sell so we can release some of that money to pay the property taxes which are coming due quickly. GOD KNOWS.
Feb 28 –God sent 3 of His ministers to me to love me and help me readjust my perspective. You are so loving Father.
*Karen – You have always trusted in Me, do not stop now; rest in Me, let Me break the way and go before you. It is your heart I am concerned about—nothing in the physical. Walk with Me, do not try to make Me walk with you. Walk with Me. Abide with Me. Look on Me.
In my devotions today: Matt 7:9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
We are humbly and simply asking for God’s direction and help so that we can proceed in doing what we believe is His will.
*Joyce – As Abraham went without knowing, so are you and Dan!
AND THAT WAS IN MY DEVOTIONS YESTERDAY.
Joyce admitted she could not go out like that. What a sweetheart. She prayed all in the church would be available to give to Dan and I financially, etc. She prayed for the Holy Spirit to fill the baby in utero. She prayed for prosperity and a good reliable car.
*Jeanette – suggested cheddar cheese milkshake because low blood sugar could be the reason for the dizziness I was experiencing. She also had a testimony of how God brought money to them from nowhere.
