So when I go to the gym I have to run on an elliptical cause basically I’m a wimp and need zero impact exercise. There is a screen where you can set a timed workout and what type of workout you want. When you set your time and start running, after you have completed 20% of the workout the sentence “Great job! You have completed 20% percent of your workout” comes across the screen. What the machine fails to tell me is that “you have 80% of your workout remaining.” Of course it doesn’t say that! It knows that I want to feel good about my 20% ! And I can do simple addition and subtraction so I know I have 80% left. Im sure you’re wondering why I am telling you about my routine at the gym. Well incase you couldn’t guess…. It ties into our support raising.
Soon after Kate and I where interviewed and accepted by Africa Inland Mission (AIM) we received emails from them about the following steps we needed to take. A big one was passports, big specifically because mine was a bit of an issue.
Considering my previous 2 posts, I am so sure its obvious that I struggle with worry and trust. This is one of the reasons I feel so compelled to share again how the Lord has been revealing himself to Dan and I and teaching us (mostly me) that he will provide.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
