Manager’s Memo 5-20-22
When life leaves you weak in the knees, Psalm 37:39 says “The Lord is our strength, in times of trouble.” I remember when we first adopted our son Ethan. Trouble hit us around that time. Personally. Financially. It was as if the enemy was having a fit. You know the feeling, when you step out of your comfort zone for God after the enemy has worked so hard to keep you comfortable. I had noticed a major dip in our roof about 20 minutes before it started raining last summer. It didn’t stop for weeks, which meant no fix for weeks. Like it hadn’t rained up until that point for months. Water leaking into the attic. We got plastic bags. Soon, the toilet in Ethan’s bathroom broke and we had to sledge hammer it to remove a piece that wouldn’t come off no matter how we wrenched it. There’s more that happened but I remember giving Ethan a piggy back ride and deciding how ridiculous this all was that God was going to turn all of this into something good. I claimed the Lord was my strength in a time I had none, a time when we were in trouble. Get this! Not only did the hole in our roof get fixed but our entire roof was replaced because the insurance adjuster (God bless him) saw hail damage. We ended up not having to replace the entire toilet and found the part we needed for less. These are small evidences of what God does for just one family in times of trouble. Think about your own, and thank Him right now.
