As we start this week, I have a brief prayer request. Please pray with me that God will protect me from fear and anxiety as this process enters the home stretch of this stage. I am convinced that this is His will for me. After a few minor seeming setbacks this morning I experienced a huge amount of anxiety and doubt. I'm so thankful for God's faithfulness to us even in things like that, and for the constant consistency of His Word.
Let me share with you some of the verses that encouraged me:
"Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me. There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours." Psalm 86:4-8
As I write this, I have the classical radio station on in the background. They are in the midst of an intense member fund-drive, and let me tell you, they are passionate about their station. As I listen it's easy for me to envy them, and the money going their way. I have to remind myself that I have the God of the universe providing my every need, and that the last bit of support will come in His perfect time and way.
Please pray with me that the last bit of support will come in. I need about 5% more, and I'm praying for it to come in TODAY! I'll keep you updated as excitement continues to mount! God is supremely good, all the time.
