Hey guys. Sorry for not posting in awhile. September slipped away from me, and now October is halfway through! Many of you might have heard about Hurricane Matthew. We are all good, but I have a story to share.

So the winds were blowing, and tons and tons of rain falling. And one of our pine trees decided to lean. So I told my mother about it and we started praying that it would stay up and not hit the house. Well the tree still leaned even more, but this time towards our neighbors house. So we prayed some more that it wouldn’t hit our neighbor’s house.

Well we had faith, especially momma, but the tree still came down. It didn’t damage anything, thank the Lord. Momma thought about it later and she asked her sister “I had faith.I knew God could hold it up. But why did it still fall?”

Romans 8:28 says that ‘All things work together for good. To them that love God to them who all the called according to his purpose.’

#1 The Lord used my mother to witness to our neighbors. She told them how she prayed that it wouldn’t hit there house, and it didn’t.

#2 God increased my faith during this. I am what people call a “worry-wart”. I don’t mean to be but it just happens. I freak out and worry to much. So, even though the tree still fell God increased my faith because I had doubts about God holding it up. It didn’t seem possible. But nothing is impossible with God. I need to trust him.

#3 He worked through my dad. Momma called my dad and told him about the tree falling. (He was at work) And she told him how she had faith that God could hold it, but he didn’t hold it up. But dad told her this:

He did hold it up. It didn’t come crashing down. It didn’t hit our house, or our neighbors. It didn’t break the fence.

What is really cool is if you look at the tree it’s leaning on a power line and on another tree. The tree that is holding it up has two branches that look like arms outreached, holding it up.

Even though we had a tree down God was still with us. Some were left homeless,flooded, trapped in their homes because roads collapsed all around. One collapsed near our house, we call it “the canyon”. But thank the Lord we have another road on which to travel. And all we had was a tree down. That’s a blessing.

God works in mighty ways. And I thank the Lord for that.

Romans 8:28 ALL THINGS work together FOR GOOD to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

      1. Your welcome and I’m so sorry someone is being cruel.

      2. I do. Halloween was originated from Pagan gods, spirits, devils, ghosts etc. We celebrate Fall Harvest not Halloween. Halloween rejoices in celebrating death, the devil, and spirits. And as christians we shouldn’t be involved with that kind of stuff.
        Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
        Matthew 13:15-16 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
        they hardly hear with their ears,
        and they have closed their eyes.
        Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
        hear with their ears,
        understand with their hearts
        and turn, and I would heal them.’[a]
        16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.

        As I christian I can’t agree with you. The Lord says to glorify him, not the devil, and that is what Halloween is about.
        We still dress up in nice costumes, but no we don’t celebrate halloween, the devil, or spirits.
        Proverbs 4:13-16 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
        guard it well, for it is your life.
        14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked
        or walk in the way of evildoers.
        15 Avoid it, do not travel on it;
        turn from it and go on your way.
        16 For they cannot rest until they do evil;
        they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble.

      3. She was being nice. Its just you didn’t want to hear what she had to say, we come at you in love. We care about you. We don’t want you to follow something ungodly. We want to encourage you in your faith. We don’t want to tell you all you are doing wrong, and how you should live your life, the bible tells you.
        Psalm 119:2 Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart–
        We want to help you, teach you, encourage you. ❤
        Just like Jesus does.

      4. Thank you so much!! I’m doing great. I’m super excited to hand out candy. I just posted something about Halloween, by the way. I hope you read it!

        How’ve you been? :)))

      5. Your welcome! And I did read it! I love that you want to give out candy to others, because God wants us to give. But don’t you think you could still give out candy without celebrating ghosts, goblins,witches, devils etc?
        And I’ve been doing good! Thanks for asking! ❤ 🙂

      6. Definitely. I wish everybody would dress up as sweet, harmless things like unicorns and Pac Man haha. I guess all we can really do is “be the change you want to see in the world”.
