    Hi Steph I know the struggles you face very well, for the past two years my family and I have been in all out fight against financial struggles o much so that a lot of times we have only canned vegetables and maybe some bread to eat but we have air conditioning electricity internet working water and gas and in all honesty though food is very scarce these days and I mean scarce lol I am grateful to be going through this because in doing so I have learned the value of the things people take for granted. Another thing I am grateful for is how I am always saying how i am willing to give money to people but that was truly tested when even ten dollars is all I have for the rest of the month and yet I am willing to give it for someone who needs it even if that means I have nothing left for food.
    Granted I am not so bad off that I am starved or anything but when canned vegies and bread is mainly your only source of food money for actual food because that much more valuable even a honey bun from the general store that is 99 cents because a treasure. We also have been so close to losing the house several times that we had go to the extremes just to save it but it was in this time that I gained an understanding of the little things.

    I will be asking God for your financial issues but I said all this to let you know that you are not alone and that there are those who truly understand what your going through
    My life's testimony seems to have helped many people so I am going to put it here http://christianchat.com/testimonies...-new-post.html

    When the hearts of God and a child of his make that special intimate connection a wondrous power is born and a flame ignites that can never be put out

    Jesus knew more than anyone of us-Love hurts

    Hello, I understand this kind of struggles. Please don't give up, you two will find a way to get through it.
    When I started family with my late husband, I was so depressed with our poor financial situation. We borrowed money to buy a house and had no money for furniture. We slept on floor and ate sitting on stairs with a carton box as table. I was frustrated, but my husband was optimistic. He held my hands and said,"Baby, look, we have hands, we can build a beautiful home and beautiful lives together." It's true, he planed our lives very well. He did 2 jobs at that time and decorated our house all by himself with a little help from me. In 10 years, we totally changed our lives, he got promoted and I got my PHD.we are not struggling with financial problems anymore.
    Please keep working, plan well and try all your best to get a better life. I believe you will make it.
    God bless you.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss and financial struggles, Steph. I know how difficult and frustrating it must be for you to go through this. Please know that I’ll be praying for you and your husband, asking the Lord to provide for all your needs and surround you with many reminders of His unfailing watch-care. Remember that He cares about every detail of your life. May He be your provider and sustainer in many tangible ways. Sending hugs & prayers your way!

    So sorry for your "storm". And thank you for the prayers as I had family affected by Harvey. However, that does not lessen the stress you are under. Sounds like it's been tough for you. Waiting on God's timing can sometimes get us down. But if we are faithful He will provide, and often in unexpected ways. Keep persevering and trusting. Romans 8:28!
