When I was planning on coming to The River Bible Institute, there were a few things I knew I was going to have to believe God for. I was spending time in prayer, asking God to provide us with an apartment to live in while my brother and I were in school this next coming year. I was also praying to God about finding a job, and transportation. My mom and I did not have enough time to look around at different apartment complexes during the summer before school started because it seemed as if when I finally decided, and knew in my heart, that I was coming to RBI, the devil was already trying to take me out. It was as if he was purposefully trying to make it too stressful for me to handle.
When our trip was all planned to come to Tampa, and visit places, we got word that my ninety-three year old grandmother had passed away. Then, on top of that, my seventeen year old dog ended up terribly ill, and we had to put him down. As you can see, our plans fell through. It was a tough time, and only a few weeks away from the start of school. I am so glad that I had, and still have, God on my side. He is my provider, and every time I wanted to throw in the towel, I would just stop – breathe- and remember that I can do ALL things through HIM who gives me strength.
As time went on, we eventually found a place to stay – ONLINE and just prayed about, trusting God with. We went later to check out the apartment, and it ended up being perfect. I knew it had to be the very place God had had in mind all along for Jordan, and me. After that, my car, which had been in the shop for months, was paid for and now working well enough to drive five hours across the state in. In the end, even transportation was taken care of! God worked everything out, just like He says he will in his Word, and for the first time in my life, I actually saw it pan out, and believed it to be true! – Carly H.© Copyright 2011 admin, All rights Reserved.
