My Turning Point Part 2

After we sell our home in Tulsa we leave to move to Tampa. As we are driving there we find out that the company I work for is being bought out and my new position I just got promoted too; this new company does not have. I am at a loss and don’t know where to turn except for God. My faith starts increasing in God after moving there and attending Cypress Point Community Church in New Tampa. Even though my faith increases I am still going through the motions of depending on a God who can handle the things I can’t. I am attending church but not really having a relationship with the Lord.

Also I got a pretty big increase in pay, but we had made some bad decisions in our finances and had some debt we had accrued. We were living paycheck to paycheck. Stacey is handling the finances and keeps telling me that we don’t have any extra money, so I do the man thing and audit the checkbook. And I say well here it is this 10% that is going to the church we need to cut out. She insisted on us continuing and would not let in.

Well she has a trip planned back to Dallas to meet some family and she is going to have to drive with our two kids and I did not feel comfortable with them driving that far. I could not take off work so the only way I could go is if I drove there and flew back.

Stay Tuned for Part 3 on the gift/miracle from God that happens next.

I thank God for you everyday.
