Surviving Month to Month

Surviving Month to Month

My wife and I raise support to run Summit Leaders. Every month we depend on folks who give financially. When we moved back from Peru I knew we didn’t have enough support to make it living in the U.S. It’s a lot more expensive here. Fortunately, the church my dad pastored offered me a gig leading music. They offered to cover our housing.

Two months ago the arrangement with the church changed and I got scared. Really, really scared. We were going to be majorly short on money.

I’m ashamed to admit this, but I started doubting.

I started doubting that God had called us to do this ministry. I started doubting that God was going to provide for us. I started looking for backup plans and scrambling. I lost a whole lot of sleep.

It’s been two months. God has provided. He always does. It’s nerve-racking really. Every month I’m not sure what our income will look like. But he’s worked through so many people to allow us to do this ministry. It’s humbling.

So here’s the deal. I can say with confidence that God will never leave you hanging. I’m certain of it. I feel so dumb for doubting. I’m sure I’ll continue fighting that doubt. But when I feel that nervous churning in my stomach I’m going to make a conscious effort to remind myself that:

My God will supply every need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus  –Phil. 4:19
