Tears are rolling down my face as I write to tell you that we just received a letter from an extended family member telling us that she will be paying for the transportation to and from Europe to pick up our little girl.  And she put all her credit card information in the note so we can use it when ordering the tickets.

I am running out of adequate words.

Oh Lord, You are awesome, and we bow down before You.

Share it!

    This is what I read last night in Streams in the Desert by Mrs. Chas. E. Cowman (copyright 1925):

    “As soon as the soles of the feet of the priests…shall rest in the waters…the waters shall be cut off” (Joshua 3:13).

    The people were not to wait in their camps until the way was opened, they were to walk by faith. They were to break camp, pack up their goods, form in line to march, and move down to the very banks before the river would be opened.

    If they had come down to the edge of the river and then had stopped for the stream to divide before they stepped into it, they would have waited in vain. They must take one step into the water before the river would be cut off.

    We must learn to take God at His Word, and go straight on in duty, although we see no way in which we can go forward. The reason we are so often balked by difficulties is that we expect to see them removed before we try to pass through them.

    If we would move straight on in faith, the path would be opened for us. We stand still, waiting for the obstacle to be removed, when we ought to go forward as if there were no obstacles.

    When ready to buy your tickets talk to Mark (my husband).  He is going over to Eastern Europe every year in Sept, Jan, March and May for two week trips.  He may be of help at finding good ticket fare.
