Happy Labor Day and Monday Manna!

It’s Sunday evening and I’m utterly exhausted from working a thirteen-hour shift, but I’m ecstatic to write for you this evening! It wasn’t until recently that I began to understand God’s ability to reveal certain things to me that I would never have been able to recognize had I not been running on limited sleep, mixed with working long hours.

I will admit that I miss a lot of opportunities to see my family because of my hectic “life schedule” and I often stretch myself far too thin. My wife left to meet the family for an early Labor Day Barbeque this afternoon and I wasn’t able to attend, so I felt very convicted. I came home on my lunch break feeling very fatigued, but there was a card that my wife had left on the kitchen counter for me. It read- “I’m so proud of you. You always give 110% towards everything you do and you do it to glorify God.” I began getting choked up as I read her note left within the card. Her handwriting hasn’t changed a bit from the 4th Grade Valentine’s grahams we used to write to each other. I said a prayer thanking God for Kay and the blessing that He continues to provide for our family.

God has blessed us so much and He will continue to bless each and every one if we continue to believe in the promises of Jesus Christ. All we need is that mustard seed of faith; God can work with that and the end result will rock our world! “No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for this that love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). God Bless you and enjoy your Labor Day!

In His Love

    That was a real from the heart moment for you. When things like that happen at your low point it truly speaks of our loving Lord. Equally yoked together makes life so much more blessed. Keep on revealing yourself thru the blog. We really enjoy hearing about your faith growth. Blessings
