This social media status came across my memories today and I had to share it with you all.
“Husband was on the phone when he said the quote of the day, “My wife hasn’t worked in 7 years.” I remember praying to be a SAHM. I remember the day I became one and my husband said “God will provide.” I remember people telling me that once my first becomes school aged then Kevin would require me to work again. I remember others saying once we have a second child there’s no way I could stay home. I also remember those saying I need a side account just in case he didn’t let me have any money or was stingy with his check. I DISTINCTLY remember checking every single person, in the most Holy way.
We’ve never bragged about what we have because honestly, we barely had “it” in the early years but God always provided. He has blessed the work of my husband’s hands tremendously. I’m grateful for Kevin Kemp because he has never made me feel inadequate or inferior for not bringing in more than a little YT money. He values my work at home and enjoys every benefit. Everything either of us makes is ours and no secret anything is needed.
God is faithful to those who are faithful to him. I love my King because he honors the King of kings. There is nothing like life with The Most High especially when I get to share it with my wonderful husband. Don’t let other’s comments interrupt God’s plan for your life. Remind them that your home is not up for discussion and that God takes care of his children. Long and random but I thank God for a reminder of where we came from and a glimpse of where we are going.”
I posted that status on August 11, 2015 but these words are still true today. Never forget that God is more than able to equip, give provision, lead, and guide you through your life. Just remain obedient to his will and the Word of God in the Bible. He has never broken a promise. He has never failed. His perfect love for his children is everlasting and his truth will endure forever.
If you ever get concerned about his track record, read your Bible and watch your faith come alive again. Take a trip down memory lane and revisit the miracles He has performed for friends, family, and even yourself. Even as I write this, life is happening and I’m truly concerned but I know God is able. I’ve trusted him through our journey and I will never be persuaded to stop. He is never failing! He is powerful! He is great and mighty! He is love and truth personified! He reigns forever and ever more! He is! He just is!
Never doubt his presence, power, and promises. Be strong believers. Remain obedient. ENDURE!
God WILL provide.
Make this week powerful,
