  1. This is so encouraging to me as I am preparing to make a move I don’t know how to make and tend to be a bit paralyzed by it. I’m so thankful the Lord keeps sending me these messages that I need to keep moving forward. It’s going to be worth it. ❤️

    • Sold in 15 hours had to move out in 11 days God moved me age 74 from 2000 sq ft home of 51 years to 500 sq ft basement.. in another province and had no one to help me. ..just keep your eyes on Jesus and where you are going and Jesus will work it all out. Look at the New adventure as an opportunity to serve Him in another place. Another day to be BLEST and to BE A BLESSING in His kingdom on earth. Praying for you .

  2. I love this! We just experienced a very similar situation last Friday my son and I flew to NJ for our annual family reunion and the main event was boating Friday. The forecast was not looking good but we all decided to pack it up and weather the mistyness. We had a ball, the sun eventually came out there was lots of dancing and laughing and hugs…the weather didn’t stop us thank god and we embraced and had the best day!! God is good!

  3. So encouraging. And a great reminder for me. I am a worrier. I love that quote from Matthew. It is one I refer to often but some days it is harder than others to not worry.

  4. Michele,

    We worry so much about the potential “what ifs” of situations & most of the time they never happen. Meanwhile we miss out on so much of God’s goodness. I was like that last fall. God changed me from part-time to full-time benefitted at same company Dec, 2021. Last fall that job changed drastically from clerical to mostly stocking 28 ICU rooms. Honestly I was not happy & let everyone know about it. I have done a re-eval of the job & side benefits ie: 3 day weekends each week, overtime, co-workers all like me. The same God who cares for all animals, & plants also knows & deeply cares for me. I just need to take a closer look at His goodness towards me.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. “Put your faith in the Father, not a forecast.” Excellent advice. Great story. So glad it worked out for you to spend refreshing time with your family!
