One tough week but I praise the Lord all the same

I have been silent for one week because I did not know how to present what I was going through without sounding as if I was trying to solicit donations. Now that things are better I feel a little more confident about sharing some details with you guys. I really wonder if anyone bothers to read these posts. Anyway I find it refreshing to share a part of my life even when I have no idea who is reading it.

In the past one week, things went so bad financially that I began to wonder, how the next week would be. Our car had a problem and the money to fix it was not forth coming, rent was due and the was no money to paid it, other bills were due and they just kept coming one after the other without any hope of financial income. However, when we thought that we would park our car and even though we did not know how we would get around, the money started coming in little by little. Needless to say, our car is fixed, our rent is paid and the bills are being tackled one after the other.

Some people may see the above paragraph as a sad place to be. How can one at this age be unable to pay rent? How do you explain the challenges of not being able to pay your bills talk less of savings and investment? However, we see this as victory, because it shows that even if you don’t have a regular income, and your work is to cater to the needs of God’s people of faith, you will be taken care of. I have no doubt that the time is coming when we will have much more than we can use, I am so glad because these days of lack, will help us to know how to share with people in need rather than spend it all on luxury.

Grad school is taken some of my time, but I know it’s a necessary sacrifice and I know that I am learning a lot more than one would expect from a theological degree in a secular university as opposed to the same at a Bible School or Theological Seminary.

Demi is growing every day. He is not walking yet, but he stands and crawls very well. I guess that’s one of the reasons why he doesn’t see the need to walk yet. I mean “why walk when you can get there faster by crawling?” :-) Demi in this world, we walk around on two legs not on hands and feet.

I have not written any new articles. I hope to write one this weekend. I am looking forward to a wonderful Easter Celebration.

Well until next time. Have a wonderful week.
