Thirteen months ago, we moved our family from the church that we had been ministering to for over 5 yrs to begin a new ministry.
We knew God was moving us and never doubted His call and His provision. He has not disappointed us. He is faithful. However, after Thirteen months, the leaders at our church have decided we are not a good fit and have requested that we resign. I can't lie, it hurts, but my God has not disappointed us. People may have, but He remains faithful.
Let me tell you what He has done. He never allowed our home in AZ to sell, which means we were never able to buy the house we had a contract for here in LA. I did not always see this as a blessing, but I understand now. He has given us renters for our house in AZ, so that it is not empty and providing is some help with the mortgage. He has been so faithful.
And now, as we prepare to leave, He continues to provide with sweet friends who love, pray for, and encourage us along our way. He has provided a haven in the midst of the storm in the form of godly parents who will share their home, once again, with their children. And He has provided unity between husband and wife as we struggle though unanswered questions and feelings of inadequacy. He remains faithful to His children. And we ARE His.
