As I look back upon the last year, I can't help but feel amazed at what God has done for Lina, Christopher and myself. Last April, Lina and I were contemplating a move to Florida and not even knowing if it would be a successful one, but we prayed on it and left it in God's hands. Whatever he chose for us we would do, even if it meant staying in New York. It was his way.
As I look back and see what we have accomplished in a short time and what prayers he has answered, I just sit in awe of his faithfulness and love to us. We are just ordinary people, who are not perfect but just put him first in everything. It's like the blessings keep coming even in the rough times.
As I look back at the last 4 months, I realize that I am not in control of our destiny, he is. When I lost my job in March, I was too ashamed to even say to anyone what had happened, fearing the ridicule of my error in moving out of our comfort zone in New York. But as I look back at the last 4 months at what he has done since, my shame turns into thankfulness that we serve a God that loves us and just wants us to be happy. That will give us what our heart desires because we love him so much.
As I look back at the last 4 months, I can not help but look forward at the next 4 months, wondering what miracle will God do next in our lives. He has done so much to this point that I feel ashamed in even asking for anything else. So I leave our lives in his hands and just put my requests in prayer and if it is God's Way, his timing, his plan, then it will come to pass.
We love you Lord!!!
We thank you for everything we have.
