It is a beautiful Saturday in Michigan and I am praising God for the sunshine and the smell of the fresh air that we all enjoyed on the way to the library this morning. I am praising God for the library in town that offers free wifi even without buying a coffee. I am loving my community and the way it supports those who live here. It is greatly appreciated!
Today it is time to write again AND join in with Five Minute Friday with my library Saturday twist. It is a time to write for five minutes without worry about grammar and whatnot. I usually grab some pictures when I am done. You can learn about Five Minute Friday at Kate Motaung’s spot right here. Today’s word is “Support.”
With the word support, my mind can go far and wide. Over the past three months since we began our journey from Arizona to Michigan, we have experienced a lot of support. We have been prayed with countless times as we wait on our home to sell. We lived in my co-workers basement for over a week as we tried to find a place to call home. We received blessings of a blow up mattress and cookware to use while our stuff is in storage. People reached out without being asked and just helped out. People that we didn’t even know. That is some amazing support. In all I knew my co-worker but the others were virtual strangers, but they were brothers and sisters in Christ.
One of the sweetest is my best friend Monika. Monika is amazing. She encourages me every stinking day that I call or text. When we lived in the same town, she would counsel me when I needed support. She would say the words I needed to hear even when I didn’t want to. And when I didn’t even know it, she and her parents drove to my home in Arizona and prayed for it and us. They prayed that we would get a buyer. Not only did they pray for us, but when my realtor happened to show up because she wanted to prep the home for a showing, they prayed for her too. That is some incredible support.
I truly am continually blessed by how God has taken care of our needs during this time of faith. We know He loves us. We know He has called us here, and we know that in His timing, our home will sell. In the meantime, we have been continually reminded of how much we need God and His people. Before I go, I just wanted to share this verse that came into mind:
Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.
