God is Moving

Alyssa and I (Kaitlyn) have had a pretty rough week with emotional ups and downs, but with all that has been going on I remember more and more that God is in control and that everything happens for a reason.  Our tomorrow is His yesterday.  It's in His hands and he already knows what's going to happen so there isn't any point in worrying or stressing over it.  And sometimes God let's things happen so he can teach us a lesson in all of it, and I feel as if I have learned a lesson from the last week.  I realized how long it had been since I turned to God and asked for help and guidance in our small organization.  Instead I tried to solve everything on my own and ended up in a mess and feeling overwhelmed,   Alyssa and I discussed this together and decided that it was time we turn everything over to Him and give HIM the *glory* for all things!  He has brought us to these places in our lives and he will surely bring us through them!  He never fails and is always faithful!

For example, with a rocky start to April and not raising anything for the Obenauf family we felt hopeless!  Then God provided over $100 for that wonderful family, even in our doubt!  

Fast forward to more recently and Alyssa and I are launching a tshirt fundraiser expecting to sell a bunch instantly, and we failed.  It was day 3 of the fundraiser that would benefit our May fundraiser and we were still at zero.  With both of us praying our hearts off and trusting that God would again provide I go and check up on things tonight and we've sold 2 shirts TODAY!  Which is a huge deal to us!   Proof below:

Alyssa's reaction 

Here's the proof that God hears our prayers and knows our hearts.  If we trust in him, he will answer.
He gives and takes away! <3

 Alyssa and I have been struggling.  Things have been really tough these last few days.  But we do feel as if God is constantly reminded us that he is right here beside of us and know our hearts and intentions are pure for this organization. 

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

                               We know that God is holding us in his hands, and we're not afraid. :) 

                                   We will do ALL things in CHRIST who strengthens us!
