My God is Bigger

سلام لكم في هذا اليوم
God is amazing. Seriously.

So I had a bake sale to benefit my trip. Every site I looked at, everybody I talked to said that the average amount a person would make at a sale like that would be about $250. When I told them my goal, what I thought God was going to give me, was $500, they all acted askance, like "Okay, but really...I don't think so." In fact, I had kind of begun to think that I was aiming too high.

Don't ever tell God what he's supposed to do for you.

I went out to Walmart with four people baking for me, from 10am to 2 in the afternoon. And I made $530.

In another fundraiser I'm doing, I give people Pringles cans, and they fill them with change. The estimate is that you'll make about $30-$50 per can. Wednesday, I had a lady turn one in and it had about $100 in it.

And as I was writing this, I went to check the above estimate and discovered that I had just received a donation of $1,000 from someone I don't even recognize. I now only lack $1,400 for my base cost.

I serve a great and mighty God. He is bigger than what men say he can do for me. As I sit here, I'm practically in tears of ecstatic joy because of how awesome my God is.

He has a crazy love for me. I don't know why, but he does. That's something to rejoice about.

Trust God. He never lets us down.

He may have bigger plans, though.
