Waiting has sometimes been hard but the joy of being able to give far out-ways the nine years of waiting. In that time we have seen our daughter and her husband receive their interest free loan and four or five other families from our former home church receive theirs. We have truly rejoiced with them.
Our attitude has always been that it doesn’t matter if we are the last to receive it’s just been good to sow into something so worthwhile.
We were really excited about receiving our loan but what made it even more special was God Himself. I went to our midweek meeting at church. Our Pastor had been encouraging people to use their gifts. He put a chair in the middle of the room and invited anyone who wanted a word from the Lord to sit in it and for everyone to pray and ask the Lord for a word for that person. I leapt up to take the chair. I was sitting eyes closed when I heard my Pastor chuckling. He said “Barbara, you’ve received something that you have been praying about for a long time”. Wow! Isn’t God awesome. How He cares for us. That encouraged me so much. It showed me that He had heard my prayers and that ALL THINGS happen in HIS TIME. In fact the scripture that came to mind when we received the news of our loan was 2 Peter 3 v 8:
“But beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day”.
We had been struggling with our finances and having our loan interest free meant an increase in payments but in faith I said “Yes, that’s fine”. I now have a job—in fact two jobs working with the elderly. And what’s more I love it.
Praise and honour to our God who alone is worthy of praise. Also our heartfelt thanks to the team at Liberty and to all of you who contribute. Your contribution is what made it possible. Remember 2 Peter 3 v 8 and just keep praying and thanking Him for the day He has chosen for you.
