#Grateful - The Joy of Giving
Two years ago I lost my job, my life was already on the downhill with my marriage crashing and burning. the last thing I needed was the added financial burden to my pile.
Like anyone trying to keep their head above water the first thing I did was trim my budget, by trim I mean cut down on everything.
I was trying to stay away from any new financial engagement, then I met a group of wonderful children and my heart just say dive head in.
It happened three times, my heart telling me to do things I can't afford. So my unemployed self, had just taken on two new ministries and a kid to support.
Two years later, my heart is full!
Supporting this little boy has been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. Seeing his little face, getting his drawing and letters every month, is the next best thing to hugging my two bugs. The two other ministries are reaching places I wish I could, but my support albeit small make me feel part of something bigger than myself.
I'm witnessing Luke 6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." coming alive in my life.
Who knows? everything happen for a reason, even if it's a bad one, it always work out for good.
My vocabulary is not big enough to express my gratitude, for all the good that came to me this past two years.
God is awesome!
