Praying for Our Needs to Be Met

My HH is AMAZING! I have spent almost 10 months of my journey praying for our needs to be met when it came to me finding a job in another state, to having insurance for me and my children, to a roof over our heads among other things.

My EH after asking him where did he want us or more like the kids to be, stated that he wanted us to move to the state that he was living in order for him to see the kids more. Pleasing my HH by being obedient to my EH we moved when my lease was up.

I really didn’t have any support in this matter so I clung to my HH for help and support. Believe me when I say it was hard because the first time I lived in this state I was so ready to get back to the other state were living in because I thought that that would be better. Now being back in the same state as my EH and this time clinging only to my HH I will have to admit it was scary but I knew that He wanted me here and because He reminded me of a prayer that I had prayed early in my RJ.

I didn’t understand why I couldn’t get a job. I had never had such a hard time finding a job ever in my life and it just seemed like I was never going to find a job. I had 2 jobs come available, but due to timing and my kids not having anyone to take care of them, I wasn’t able to take them.

Isaiah 55:9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

It seemed like I was being defeated and that I was going to have to go back to the other state. However, I kept praying and crying out to God for our needs to be met.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” Philippians 4:6

“Do not stop crying out to the LORD our God for us” 1 Samuel 7:8

Our God is a FAITHFUL GOD! Almost 2 months after moving God blessed me with a very good job that has awesome benefits for me and my kids and that start the day I start working. Not only that we had been running low on funds for pretty much everything but thanks to my HH he has continued to use others to help us especially when it came to food which I was able to get from the state even though I thought I hadn’t submitted the application. Also, I was able to get one of my children into school and upon writing this I am praying that the other is able to get in as well and that childcare won’t be as expensive.

God has been so faithful and continues to bless us.

“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart”. Psalm 37:4
