Shout out to my sisters, who after two years, have finally subscribed to my blog! Thus, helping me surpass 100 followers, which for a novice blogger like myself- feels like quite the accomplishment. So, thanks again, ladies! 😘
Every Tuesday, since the new year began, I’ve been sharing a testimony on how God has been at work in my life. First, I talked about how God ministered to me through my 2 year old daughter Sarah- who reminded me that all I need to do is call on God’s name whenever I feel stuck. You can read about that here.
Second, I talked about how someone had invited themselves to my church and how I hadn’t had a divine encounter like this one in years. I also talk about how The Glory Will Be Greater in 2018 and how I’ve made this the theme of my year.
Third, I talked about how God has been transitioning my husband and I into full-time ministry. As each week goes by, I am reminded through these testimonies of just how faithful God is & how all things work together for the good of those who love him! ❤️
Today’s #testimonytuesday is more of an update.
As I have mentioned in my previous posts, my husband and I have been feeling the terrifying call to full-time ministry. Of course, we have no idea what that will look like, and Sam is not going to just quit his job, so we decided to ask God for a sign. A few months ago, I got a raise at my job. Our sign was this: If I get another raise or promotion, it will be confirmation that we’re not crazy and that this is something God is really asking us to do. I didn’t think they would give me another one , but I figured I would need it if we’re going to lose Sam’s income. That was on New Year’s. Well, guess what I just got this week. 🙂
The funny part is, this was something that had been negotiated months ago, way before I even thought to ask God for a sign. Even before you asked God- your blessing was already on its way.
You might not be asking God for a sign, per se but maybe you have a request or petition before the Lord and you’re waiting for an answer. Maybe there are days where you feel like that answer is never going to come. 1 John 5:14-15 says:
Now this is the confidence we have before Him: Whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked Him for. Keep praying and BELIEVE.
