“Thank-you” for your gifts and prayers for my Tax Bill – from Anonymous Abuse Survivor

Last month we brought to your attention an immediate need of one of our readers regarding an unexpected tax bill.  (Links to the original post and the update posts – first and final – are here for those of you who didn’t see those posts.) That need was met in only nine days.  What a blessing your outpouring was to her.  For safety reasons the abuse survivor needs to remain anonymous, but she wanted to express her gratitude so we putting it as a stand alone post so that as many as possible have a chance to see it.

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in praying or giving toward the payment of my taxes this year. I am amazed at how God continues to provide for me in ways beyond anything I could expect or imagine. When I first began praying about this with my close friend, she reminded me that nothing is impossible for God. The struggles I face can be stressful and exasperating at times, but I also know that they cause me to have to rely on faith in God for my situation, more all the time, and that actually feels good to me to watch all the ways He cares for His own. 

I am praying God will return to all of you a one hundred fold blessing for your care and generosity and for His hand to meet every need you have in your life. My love and prayers are with you, always. May your celebration of Easter this year hold great blessing for all of you.

Final Update on Giving for Abuse Survivor’s Tax Bill – Paid in Full

Psa 68:4-5  Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the LORD; exult before him!  (5)  Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.

As of today, we have received $1602.00 in donations to cover the $1540.00 unexpected tax bill owed by an abuse survivor. We orginally posted the request on March 21st, so in only nine days the need was met in full. This is not only a huge blessing to our friend in need, it is very exciting for the rest of us as well.

Many thanks to all of you for praying and for giving. On occasion I am sure we will have opportunity to share similar requests with you all again.

Update on Giving for Abuse Survivor’s Tax Bill

 

Encouragement from the Psalms

We have added a new page to the top menu bar under the SCRIPTURE tab. In addition to our collection of “Twisted Scripture” articles, you will now find a collection of thirteen different Psalms for your encouragement. And with most of them Pastor Crippen has written a few thoughts. We have entitled it appropriately “Encouragement from the Psalms”.  We hope you find them to be a blessing!
