"Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, NLT
You know as I kept reading this verse this morning I realized that I am very happy & thankful with where I am in my life even though the circumstances might be unreal to some people. What I mean by that is a lot of people look at our living arrangements as crazy and why would we choose to do what we have. All I have to say is doing God's will and having complete faith that He is leading us in the direction He wants for our lives. I have seen God work in our lives and its amazing to see the doors be opened for us and even though we don't have the money to do the things we want to do so we make the best of what we do have. It has made us see the difference of what a need is and a desire. I believe the path we are on was our eye opener to lean on HIm and not my parents, we need to believe that God will see us through because He knows our needs and desire. I must say, being poor has given me complete joy, happiness and a more understanding for people in need, but here's the kicker I don't see us as poor I see us as rich in the Lord and if I am doing God's will then I have all the riches I need.
