For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. — 1 John 5:4

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believe that that Jesus is the Son of God? — 1 John 5:5

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness of God in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because He believeth not the record that God gave of His Son. — 1 John 5:10

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and that life is in His Son. — 1 John 5:11

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. — 1 Samuel 5:12

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. — 1 John 5:20

Thank You LORD…an update

So here’s what has been going on since the last update, Felling More Than Bless  We received our adjustment from the adjuster who came out last week. It seems that it will be enough to cover the cost to gut our house and redo everything. I wasn’t so sure when I posted I need prayers please I am not sure about what it will be redone with as we have not had much time to really research things. Things like cabinets, flooring, etc.

The LORD had blessed us with really nice solid wood cabinets. The contractor and adjusters (all 3 that have been to our home) commented on how they don’t make them like that any more unless you custom order them. They all asked when we put them in and we told them the truth. The cabinets are 16 years old, and not custom built. We don’t have money for custom built. Hahaha :) They all said they look brand new, and I had taken really good care of them. I always said well, the LORD blessed us with nice things the least I can do is take care of them.

Same with the carpet they all asked when did we get the new carpet?  Ummmm, again 16 years ago. They would again say wow, it looks brand new.

I could go on and on about the hardwood floors, bathroom showers, tubs, fixtures, etc, etc. The point is God provided us those good quality things, and the contractor said due to the storm and prices go up after a storm because of the high demand for these things, and the low supply. He said we probably wouldn’t be getting the quality that we have.

I have faith that God provided us those high quality items once, not that we are rich and can afford it. I truly looked around almost daily, and thanked God for always blessing us with good deals for things that would last us. I have faith He will do that again.

I believe that no matter what God sees fit to give us it will be His will, He is in control of this and I am thankful that He is because I would be lost if God wasn’t controlling this.

Now we just are waiting for the insurance company to approve the adjustment, so the contractor can get to work. Thank You LORD!

The adjuster has been very diligent with submitting our housing receipts. We received the check for the rent we paid for the first place we stayed. And according to the adjustment the rent for the place we are staying now was submitted the day we moved in here. Thank You LORD!

I thank God for His mercy, and giving us strength, and all the Love He has shown us through His Almighty way of working things, and Love through others. I thank Him for all of you, my wordpress family. Y’all have shown us so much love, prayers, and encouragement. We are truly grateful and humbled more than y’all will ever know :)

Thank You LORD for everything.

LORD, I ask You to bless everyone reading this :)


Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. — 1 John 4:4

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. — 1 John 4:7

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. — 1 John 4:8

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? — 1 John 4:20
