Ten Percent

4:36 PM

I've been kinda down about my fundraising lately. I've sent out some letters, had an event or two, and still hadn't seen an increase in my funds. I really wasn't stressing out about it, I have still a few months until I need all the money, and I know God will provide. But it was just, well, not encouraging. And as usual, God knows my concerns before I even speak them, and just this week I received funds that put me over 10 percent! Obviously, still a ways to go, but just passing that first marker was reassurance enough. God then gave me this verse to remind me that He is in control:

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us," Ephesians 3:20

He will provide, in His time, and I will just do my part in allowing Him to provide. I even made this handy little thermometer as a visual guide as to where I am, funds-wise. Heck yeah.
