Testimonies of His Greatness and Leaps of Faith

I have a few anecdotes to share, well really they are testimonies, testimonies of the Great Love of the Father.

(Oh how He loves us, may we always remember and always rejoice.)

The Bike

A grandfather and grandson stopped by our house recently to check out an old, but good, kids bike we had for sale.  The grandson was turning 6 and was looking to get his first bike.  We began talking, and found that the grandfather was a christian as well, serving the Lord for many years and attending a church in our community.  He asked about our move and we shared with him a bit about our passion in serving the Lord, and our current move back to YWAM (Youth With A Mission). Deciding the bike was a good fit, but still trying to surprise his grandson, he slipped us some money and said he “might” call back later.  (Wink, wink) 🙂 We were only asking $35.00 for the bike and in Tia’s hand was $60.00! A little while later the grandfather called us to say they had found a bigger bike that his grandson would be able to grow into, he would stop by to get the $20.00, but really believed the $40.00 was ours, “for the mission”.  His parting words were, “enjoy the blessings in Hawaii!”.  A complete stranger one minute, a part of God’s bigger plan the next.  Thank you “Grandfather”, we are amazed at how the Lord works!

More Provision

Things have been up and down with the pay at Tia’s work, to say the least.  Working for a sub contractor is always a challenge.  Recently due to extenuating circumstances Tia stayed home a few days last week.  Having tight finances already we were trusting the Lord to take care of the situation and put things right. (Getting payed what Tia’s owed!) So, this is the fun part, Tia’s supervisor knows him quite well, they’ve been working together for a long time now.  Appreciating the asset that Tia is to the company and knowing his integrity and work ethic, he decided to take on jobs (with some of the other supervisors) and have Tia get paid for them! God had other people working for Tia! That is so funny and so unexpected.  We are beyond grateful for their act of generosity and praise the Lord for He truly works in mysterious ways. 🙂

Isn’t it good to know the Lord? Yes! It is good to praise His Name!

Hoping you are encouraged to look for the Lord in your day!

Investing our faith in the character of God –  Tia, Haley, and the ready for summer boys!
