Financial Needs Met
And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
"D" God blessed him with a way to provide a new washer and dryer for his household.
My company has decided to give a significant raise to everyone in the facility to help with keeping them satisfied to work there.
We prayed and asked God for vision, then proposed a strategic partnership and a drastic reduction in rent, to partner together to positively impact our community in new ways together, and it was approved. A 45% reduction in rent cost and the power of partnership will allow us to reach into our city with increased strength to accomplish God’s great plans for our city.
“N" was hired for the medical billing position she wanted. This frees her up to serve alongside her husband on Sundays.
Today, I got a raise. Recently the management had told the whole warehouse that everyone was going to get a raise to keep us at a competitive wage. The director said that anyone who has worked for the company up to 1 year was going to get a $1.50/hr. raise. Stating that this is what it will take to be competitive within our market. He also stated that anyone who has been with the company longer will be getting a compression rate adjustment. I honestly thought that meant that we were only going to get a small raise. Hearing this I prayed to God that we would get something close to what the newer individuals were going to make. He answered my prayer and I not only got what everyone else got, I got a bit more. My raise came out to be $1.61/hr. I know that the Lord knows that I am doing all that I can for my employer. I am always trying to be the good steward that He wants me to be. Being a tither does pay off in many ways. He knows our needs.
C' reports the Lord blessed her with more clients. She was tipped $800 by a client that said it was a gift for all her hard work! The Lord has given her a sense of peace and calmness with all the worries she's had. She feels He has shown her that through the problems she's been having, it’s all going to be ok.
I had been praying that our company would get busy so we could go back to full salary. Well, we are now in overdrive supporting COVID-19 vaccine locations and we're back to full salary and have been hiring. Didn't think it would happen so fast, that I even got my wife a position supporting my team and now we will be in overflow next month.

I believe that through faith in tithing and giving that the 35% reduction in salary I took for about 10 months last year is given back to me. My job has decided to pay back the reduction in pay at the end of the month.

Growing In Grace and Knowledge
As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:14-15
"L" reports the OSL class and messages on Sunday are changing her life and getting her back on track to having an intimate relationship with Jesus!
I have been sharing with the girls that I work with about the deeper understanding I am gaining with service messages and OSL classes. Last week we started our book study about God's promises.
I made the basketball team and I’m getting my grades up! School isn’t as bad as I thought, I’m able to speak about God without getting shamed for it!
Yesterday I was able to pray for a client and the Holy Spirit told me to pray healing over her!
Praising God for the opportunities He places before me to see His hand at work and to share that with others.
I have been so blessed. My brother has been pouring into me and his wife as well and encouraging me in the Word. Bless them!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
"N" - 12 yr. old went missing on his bike. Wasn't a runaway. Found by the HD recovery team, and brought home safely. The outpouring of strangers willing to drop everything and scour the neighborhoods and dirt bike trails for him was AMAZING!!
Congratulations to “R." Her daughter had a baby boy!
We are officially pregnant! We are very grateful to be receiving this blessing.

I have been praying for a while on the one thing that I was meant to be a part of… my purpose. People’s loss is something that grips my heart and I feel a connection with them and want to help. Grief Share is part of the plan, praise God. This week I was invited, by the founder!!, to become a counselor at the Rose of Sharon to work with women with unexpected pregnancies and may be contemplating abortion. Praise God!!!!
“J" prevailed in court after being falsely accused. God was with her in every step. The judge found no grounds for a civil case, and even the DA and Assistant DA spoke in her defense.
God has blessed me with the years to see “C” turn 32 and “J” 9 today!!!! I am thankful and grateful for each day and year given.
Giving thanks to God for our health, family, and our church.
God is beyond good!! He has maintained my health, my family’s health, He has increased and maintained our income. The word ‘good’ is soo small in comparison to what He does in my life.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases... Psalm 103:2-3
Our oldest daughter is in a food allergy treatment program for her anaphylaxis. She's been working through the program for about a year and a half. She had some set backs and she was having major breathing issues (her breathing was as bad as someone with COPD) related to allergic asthma. They wanted us to get new bloodwork done and kept telling us "whenever we do new bloodwork the treatment plan always gets longer not shorter so be prepared." Every time... every time - I would say, we didn't accept that and our God had a better plan! I kept praying that there would be no explanation for the progress they found in her blood results. When we went to her last appt she passed her breathing test not once, but twice! When they reviewed the blood results the plan stayed the same length (not longer like they said). But the crazy part was she needed to have an increase in food tolerance in the 50 to 100% range. She had a 3,000% increase in tolerance!! They were blown away. She even had improvement with foods they haven't even treated yet.
Our youngest daughter had issues with ear infections when she was little. Had tubes put in, tonsils removed and all that. She got passed it but her ear drums didn't look too good, scarring, etc. She was having issues recently so we took her in and they said it looked like she was having issues due to allergies. Told us to give her allergy medicine every day but they were concerned with hearing loss. She did take the medicine for a few weeks. We prayed over her, then went back a couple weeks later and were told her ears were all cleared up and hearing was perfect!
Now she isn't on any medicine and the Dr. was so impressed he told us we don't need to come back for a follow up. Prior to this appointment, when she was 6, she had "permanent hearing loss in the middle tone range." At this most recent appointment her hearing was perfect!
My husband was involved in a car accident [March 26] and he suffered a broken pelvis, broken bones in his back (small bones on the discs) and a small hole in the lung. There is a pocket of air found outside the lung that they are keeping an eye on. I know that God is going to reveal Himself drastically in my husband's life. ALL FOR GOD’S GLORY! I ask for God's will to be done in the restoring and refining in our marriage and in his walk with Jesus!
UPDATE: Neither my husband or mother-in-law who were in that accident ended up having to have surgery on their pelvis! Praise Jesus! He is improving everyday and I know God is going to use him in a mighty way. They both will be going to get rehabilitation to start the process little by little, healing and walking in three months. God is so faithful!
I had a grand mal seizure last week, causing trouble walking and inability to speak. After going to The Chosen ("coincidentally" the episode where Jesus heals the man's legs), my wife asked the elders to pray, and they prayed over me. The next morning at 6am I got my voice and am walking strong, unassisted...
While my grandson, Gideon, was in the hospital, the doctors found that one of his legs was shorter than the other, so my wife and I prayed for him.
At a follow-up appointment for his legs, the doctor said, "there is nothing wrong with his legs and everything looks normal!"
