At the beginning of the year, God told me to shut off all ads and affiliate marketing links on my blogs. I do not request donations or have pop up windows encouraging you to follow my blogs.
After I shut off all avenues to generate revenue, the fun started:
- January – our health insurance premium increased 65%.
- February – our furnace cracked and had to be replaced.
- March – emergency gall bladder surgery.
- April – the air conditioner coil and condenser had to be replaced.
- May – the washer broke.
God wanted me to rely only on Him. He doesn’t want me to write just to get money.
1 Thessalonians 3:5, “Never once did we try to win you with flattery, as you well know. And God is our witness that we were not pretending to be your friends just to get your money!” New Living Translation
I’m not after your money. God is taking care of us.
Last week, a man wrote a note, rolled it up, and handed it to David at work.
“Give this to Pam,” he instructed.
I unrolled it, and read a “Thank You” note for playing the piano at church. The note was wrapped around a blessing. Yes, God takes care of us.
Dear Father God,
Thank you for meeting our needs. Thank you for showing us how to adjust our budget to cover the health insurance increase, and later, to adjust it again to make payments on the hospital bill. Thank you for having us set aside money for a new furnace and air conditioner 5 years ago. I believe that when we receive the bill for the washer, there will be enough in our appliance fund to pay for it. Give us wisdom in our finances.
In Jesus Name,
