"I believe always always
our savior never fails...
Even when all hope is gone,
God knows our pain
and his promise remains
he will be with you always..."
I witnessed a miracle the other day..
i know, most people say blatantly obvious miracles only happened in the bible.
Jason and I are working on getting everything ready to hopefully be attending YWAM Waves DTS in Australia in July 2011. However, to do this we have to come up with around $20,000 between the two of us.
This is alot of money.
Jason is already paying for himself to go to school, and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that that is expensive and it is hard to make money and go to school. But he is doing just that.
The other day all within about 3 hours he found out that he needed to buy:
A new rim for his far: $130
A new tire(for the rim): $100
He figured out his car had alot of problems
and it would be cheaper to just sell it
and get a new one: $4000 ish (he can sell his car though for about $3000)
Fix a part on his roommates jeep: $300
All these problems totaling around $1230
this is a serious amount of money especially when also trying to save up for YWAM..
I just have to say.. we serve an amazing God and when he sees that we are really willing to drop everything and follow and love Him then...this A.W.E.S.O.M.E God WILL provide..
after having these issues Jason decided to get his online bank account and see what the damage was going to be..but as soon as he got on, he saw that that day $650 from Colorado State University had been put in his bank account. Confused because he had already gotten all his grant money, Jason gave them a call.. To his amazement, he had qualified for another academic grant, and was going to receive $1300 over the course of these 2 semesters...$1300 that he had not budgeted in at all...
and here is the kicker... a few days earlier he had been talking with a few of his friends about how he knew God would provide for YWAM, but he wasn't just going to drop $1000 into jason's bank account...and bam...2 days later!!!
HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD????
i think the lyrics that are at the top of this are so perfect for understanding God and his love for us.
We will always go through times of struggle, but if we put our faith and love in God, he will never fail us! Our savior NEVER fails. Jason and i were so stressed out that he wasn't going to be able to come up with the money..we had lost almost all hope, but our savior never fails. God can see that we are having a hard time, and he will always, always reach his hand down and give us the strength we need.
I BELIEVE ALWAYS ALWAYS
OUR SAVIOR NEVER FAILS
EVEN WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE
GOD KNOWS OUR PAIN
AND HIS PROMISE REMAINS
HE WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS
