Closed doors should equal open windows...right?

Closed door...

I pray the old saying is true...

"When God closes a door, he always opens a window".

Cause right now all the doors are closed shut.
And locked.
Double bolted, even.

We don't make enough to qualify to rent pretty much anything out there.
Even the trailer parks say we can't afford the lot rent.
Even when the mobile home is free!
And the ghetto?
Nope...not enough to get a place even in the ghetto.

God is bigger than that.

He will have to make a way where there seems to be no way.

And that's the truth.
Pthewww.....
(that's a raspberry in case you couldn't deciper it!)

In Christ alone,
Cindy

Pin It!

You remain on my prayer list! I hope that you are seeking out whatever assistance is available, either through the government or through churches.

Rita said...

What state do you live in? There is a slight possibility we could help.

Valerie said...

*He will have to make a way where there seems to be no way* --

Cindy, I just wanted to make sure you saw, read, prayed and believed that phrase again and again and again. I am so excited to see how HE deals with this -- what a TESTimony you'll have -- don't get lost looking at the TEST part :)

Continuing to hold you up to our Father!

Blessings!
Gail

You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Just like the Keith Green Song playing in the background- He'll take care of the rest. God be with you!

Hi Cyn, I may not pray in the traditional ways, but in my own way, I am praying for you now. Stay the course. It will pass. It will get better.

What can I do?

I am praying that the powerful God that we serve and has our futures in His hands is fixing to move this mountain. He's done it before and He'll do it again! Just hold on and don't lose faith. Love and prayers are going up for you by many people and you are never alone!

Cindy
I will continue to pray. The Lord will provide. I know this because I've been in some rough places myself and he was there for me.
He will be for you too.

Hi Cindy,

Oh, my dad and I can really relate in so many ways!!!! All I can encourage you with is to keep leaning on Jesus, and He WILL see you through this. The key is not to give up !!!! Extra love and hugs to you, Heather :)

Renata said...

Hi Cyn
I am praying, praying, praying for you right now. Keep leaning on the Lord ~ I'm sure He has a plan in all this ~ it's just hard to see right now.
Love to you

Really, I do know your struggle, your frustrations, and the fears this must be bringing on. Don't give in to them, God is caring for you and has a place for you." But Thou O Lord art a shield about me, My glory and the One who lifts my head. I was crying to the Lord with my voice, and He answered me from His holy mountain. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustains me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about." Psalm 3:3-6

Rita...we live in West Michigan, around the Grand Rapids area...
We would be able to go a bit north, maybe 45 min. or so. If we go further we risk not seeing our kids...two of them are still quite young..22 and 19...so we feel we need to be fairly close in case of trouble or problems.

Rita said...

I agree with you. We live in central Indiana so that would not help at all. I can still pray like I've never prayed before that you will have all that you need and more. Your blog is inspiring and helpful to others. Please continue to let us know how things are so we can all pray. Where 2 or 3 gather in prayer our prayers will be answered. Bless you as we follow your days.

Holly said...

You are in our prayers sweet lady. We feel your pain and it make us realize just how blessed we are at the moment. For we realize that we too could be in your shoes next year. Lifes road is never set in stone. As I look around, I see many of our friends who live in travel trailers having lost homes in other states or are here working to pay for homes left behind. Some have family in tow, others are loney for their loved ones in at home in another state. A new chapter has opened up for you. I pray that your heart will be comforted and that you will be guide to a place where you can start again.

Maria said...

Stopping by here with a {hug} and a prayer ~
Cindy, your asking and seeking is already opening the windows of prayer for you and your family.
I pray that the Father of all ~ will give you, His daughter, all that you need ♥
Persevere and Persist ~ as did so many women of God...
...keep knocking, Cindy ~

Allison of A Farmgirl's View said...

I am praying for you Cindy and thanking God for the answer he has already set in motion that is not seen yet. I'm thankful for you and your encouraging blog and God will continue to bless you and use you because you are so willing. Hang in there and know there are lost of us sisters in Christ lifting your name before the throne of the Almighty:)

In HIS Love,

Praying for you Cyn, God owns it all, and He hasn't forgotten you He sees and knows all.
Hugs,

Still praying for you Cindy! God will make a way in His time not ours. I know it is hard but try to remain strong. Rebekah

I've posted your blog post on my facebook page because I have friends in the GR area and I've asked them to pass it on - our God is able! Anita

Cooking Up Faith said...

My prayers are with you. So many of us are going through the same thing. The Lord is near. He is our Provider. He will carry you up from the valley. Hang on!

Have Courage said...

Still praying for you all Cindy. There is a door yet unseen or yet to be recognized, you will be taken care of. God does not leave us stranded but stands behind at times whispering, "this is the way, walk ye in it." (((Hugs)))

Just a thought... Have you considered getting some books and forcing yourself into acquiring a new knowledge or skill-set that is in demand? This is a great way to lift yourself up out of poverty. I did it some years ago, and I've known a few others too. Its not easy, it takes a lot of time, dedication, and coffee. It does work better than just hoping and praying though, and I mean that in all honesty not trying to be offensive at all.

Cyn - do y'all want to come live with me for a while?

Stacie, A Firefighter's Wife said...

I am praying that you will be content in plenty and in want. I am so sorry you are going through this trial. The greater the trial, the more capacity we have to minister to others who are in pain. I keep telling myself as I am facing my worst fears. I will someday be able to use this for His Glory.

Love you!
