Hello, Lord!
Wow, it is simply amazing how much you have increased my faith in the last few months while we have been facing homelessness! I feel closer to you than I’ve ever felt to anyone, at any time. Trusting you has become almost as easy as breathing. Running to you for comfort or encouragement has begun to be my default method of coping with life. This level of fellowship with your Spirit just blows me away, and yet I cannot keep my puny human mind from wondering, “How are you going to TEST this awesome level of faith you’ve given me, Lord? What is fixing to happen that makes me NEED this much faith?” LOL

 
1 Timothy 1:15-19 ERV

Here is a true statement that should be accepted without question: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, and I am the worst of them. 
But I was given mercy so that in me Christ Jesus could show that he has patience without limit. Christ showed his patience with me, the worst of all sinners. He wanted me to be an example for those who would believe in him and have eternal life. 
Honor and glory to the King who rules forever. He cannot be destroyed and cannot be seen. Honor and glory forever and ever to the only God. Amen. 
Timothy, you are like a son to me. What I am telling you to do agrees with the prophecies that were told about you in the past. I want you to remember those prophecies and fight the good fight of faith. 
Continue to trust in God and do what you know is right. Some people have not done this, and their faith is now in ruins. 

 
Lord, I thank you for already putting that faith to the test, lol. The person who was supposed to buy my car for $900 cash today decided not to… so now we have less than a week to get out of here, with a couple hundred dollars to our name and hundreds of dollars worth of repairs needed on the truck alone… and nowhere definite yet for my daughter to go. She can come with us but that would be so much harder, Lord — and she really does not WANT to. But yet, I can look at that and know that we would never abandon her, so how can I think for even a second that you would ever abandon us?! I still trust you completely, Shepherd. I look forward to writing about your miraculous provision for us in the coming days and weeks. Amen.
