Our father God heard my cries and had mercy on me, a wretched sinner. I am overfilled with joy, despite my unfortunate circumstances. I will no longer serve at my local church because God answered my prayers. I am leaving under good terms. He has opened the door to allowing us to finally launch a church. We will humbly start with a small group out of our living room. Anything beyond this humble start will be a testament to God’s glory, God’s strength and God’s mercy.
I am full of joy for this blessing, despite my personal sorrows. I feel attacked in every aspect of life. I am taking medicine to help me get through the days. It got to a point where my mind was strong enough to continue but my body was incapable of handling the stress and anxiety. I cried out to my lord for help and I feel like He led me to a Dr. that helped me. At work, it seems like every client is being led away from me by unseen forces. Different marketing, different walks of life, seem to not come through, though I desperately need them. My car has had one issue after another that has cost me much, though we pray for our cars in our small group. My health is not great. My shoulders have sharp pain, my back is messed up, to the point that I can no longer have a good strong work out, of which I depend on to help me destress and let out my frustration. I have difficulty standing and walking. All of these unforeseen unfortunate events with my car and health, lack of work have put a strain on my finances. I cry out to God for help. And I thank God and praise Him, first and foremost because I get heaven one day and it makes all this worth it… but, also because He has blessed me with some awesome kids, an awesome wife and good family. Though not perfect and full of problems, my life would not be the same without them. I am optimistic about the church plant. God’s will be done.
