Believing in Provision

"And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:19 NASB

My 2013 Word: GIVING


Well I have to say the Blessings just keep pouring out!!!

 I have 3 main blessings I would like to share with you that happened all within a few days of each other this week.

  1.  Friends of mine down State finalized their adoption of 3 beautiful little boys.
  2. My Cousin and her Husband received a referral for a beautiful little girl in China
  3. I found out that my brother has finally gotten work.

All I can say is Wow, Wow, Wow!!! I’m so excited for each and every one of them.

Something else I have been thinking about this year is my ‘word’ of the year.

We were challenged with this on a Sunday Morning. What word is God calling you to? I’ve been thinking about this and I wanted to make sure that I had God’s word for me and not my word for me.

I believe God’s  ‘word’ for me this year is Giving.  I really want to  Give God 110% in everything that I do and say, from training at work to having coffee and listening to a friend.

Now this doesn’t only mean the small stuff, but the bigger things too. I need to give of my Tithes each week. Daniel and I still struggle with this, especially if we don’t make it to church BEFORE the plate is passed around. I’m still convinced church starts earlier and earlier each week (Not really, but sure feels that way sometimes). We have in the past discovered that it’s best to figure out what funds are coming in for the week, and basing our tithe on the amount before we get paid so that we are trusting in the Lord to provide all of our needs.

Now this does bring me to the title of my Blog “Believing in Provision”

I had a friend challenge me with the title of my Blog. The hot topic was in regards to our adoption.  She asked did I really Believe that God was going to provide for our adoption even if it meant passing up a referral because we didn’t have the funds at that time. I had to really stop and think. Would I be able to pass up a referral if we didn’t have the money saved at that time? What if God asked me to wait longer for his timing??? Could I really wait any longer? Yup I struggled through that answer. I had to say I was really double checking my heart. After some time to consider I realized that God always has the best planned for us. He has always proven himself faithful. And He will make our family what He wants it to be. I have to trust the Lord with all of His Plans.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Prov 3: 5&6 

So in my year of Giving I want to Give to God all of my heart & understanding so that He can make my path straight.

What’s Your Word?

I am an Island girl from Prince Edward Island Canada. My husband and I are on an adoption journey that we would have never expected. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul and strength. My hope for this blog is that you would be encouraged by how God is providing for all our needs, through adoption and beyond. This blog is to show the journey that we have come through, and the journey that we are on.

  1. Krista,

    Our word is Remember. The reason behind this is to remind us of how much God has provided and keeps giving to us even though we do not deserve it. Rembering how for the past year and half, He has carried us when we got discouraged or felt that Wm’s illness was slow at recovering. God’s timing is perfect and we have seen His perfect timing

    Keep writing


  2. I would say mine is believe. I believe God hears my prayers, I believe He cares about me and I believe He has plans for me. When my faith lags I believe He is always with me no matter how I feel. I believe He is in control of all things.
    Thank Krista!
