1Peter5:7 Cast all your cares upon God, for he takes care of you


  1. John, I'm so glad you know the Lord, and not know him only, but realize just how trustworthy he is. I prayed for you the first day, asking the Lord to provide your needs. After that I simply thank him every day for doing it. We are never going to be without, my friend. Not ever! If we have HIM...we have enough. People tell me, when I've faced similar circumstances as yours " Aren't you worried? What are you going to do? You might have all the faith in the world, Barb, but you still need money." My reply was, and has always been "God knows my needs and will provide them (when they are needed-not before). Sometimes we're tested a bit. We forget for instance, when we pray for a stronger faith that the only way God can answer that prayer is by letting trials come our way.:) You're a good man, a godly man. Your financial needs may be great, but it will work out okay.
    take care.

  2. Barb that is so true and Thank you for all your prayers.The one good thing about Social Media is meeting someone as kind hearted and Godly as yourself.Have a Blessed weekend my friend

  3. Hi John,
    Just stopping by, hoping to find another post from you. There was none. Drats!
    but that's okay, buddy. I'll be back. Sooner or later you'll have something to say. Hoping all goes well for you today. I am looking forward to the good news that will one day come. God loves to spoil his children. Have a blessed day.
