Jehovah Jireh

I mentioned previously that when we received our referral, we had one week to either accept or reject the referral. What I did not mention is that we also had one week to give our agency $4,000...We had $2,000.

Moving to Seattle depleted much of our savings. Not only was the move itself expensive, but Matthew actually took a lower-paying job and we are living in one expensive city! But we know that if God leads, then he will make the way. We knew we were meant to be in Seattle, and we knew we were meant to adopt.

So when we received our referral, we prayed. We prayed for many things, but among them we prayed for the money to pay our agency. We received our referral on Friday, on Sunday were given a check for $2,000. And we HAD NOT told anyone that we needed $2,000!

So today, and everyday, He is Jehovah Jireh.
