The Lord will Provide....

I don't always post here as often as I could/should.  It used to be a personal site but has recently morphed into a family blog.  I'm sure that's much more interesting than my previous messages of learning and growth.  :)

We're in a transition stage as a family.  I don't feel to post about that today but will say that it is a trying time and is stretching me more than I had hoped for.  :)  But, I am seeking to put my trust and faith in Him and in all His promises.

And, a beautiful message that my daughter has received twice on her mission recently, once from the member family-patriarch where they've been living (beloved Brother Holloman) and...then again from her Mission President who both reminder her of the Lord's words "The Lord will take care of every needful thing."

I write that quote at the top of my daily notebook to-do list EVERY morning.  It's been the reminder I've needed that the Lord is in-charge and that if we put our trust in HIM - we will be delivered out of all our trials and troubles and afflictions.

That deliverance may end up being and looking different that we originally planned, but, His promises never fail.  And, if we are seeking to be on His errand and to put Him first in all things, then ...His promises are sure.

Oh, what a gift and blessing that is.

Thank you Rocky Mount, NC, for all you have done for my daughter.  Better yet, thank you,  Lord, for calling her there amongst these wonderful people who she has come to know and LOVE deeply.  It's been a great blessing that she didn't know was possible a year ago when she entered the MTC.  She just knew she wanted to serve Him and that He would provide the way and means for her to do so.

Now, she knows some of the reasons she's done what she's done and been where she's been and she has felt an even deeper sense of gratitude for the goodness of God, His love for all His children, and His desire to have them come home unto Him.

What a glorious joy this is!

  1. This was a lovely post and very heartfelt. I agree that life is hard at times and we just have to trust in the Lord. My favorite scripture for almost 47 years is Proverbs 3:5-6. I memorized this years ago and it has served me well.
    It is so awesome to have a daughter on a mission; I now how you feel.
    Blessings and hugs!
