God Takes Care of the Birds

That's what Giulian sleepily said to me the other night whenever I began recounting my worries to him, and it reminded of how God has provided for us tremendously this past month. I stopped worrying and believed the gospel in that moment.

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? -Matthew 6:26

Yesterday Giulian began a new full-time job as a construction delivery driver!

We are so thankful that God saw fit to give him this job and at the exact right time. It was a quick interview process and we're super excited for the potential that Giulian has with this company, which was voted one of Seattle's best companies of 2006. Even though we have been waiting since November for Giulian to find a full-time gig, God evidently provided for us these past nine months and knew exactly when we would need it. I recently found out that the family I nanny for is moving so I would be out of the job! We had decided to buy a car from my parents with the money from our previous car sales so we would be using a big chunk of savings! We are more valuable than the birds and God faithfully cares for us.

We found out that Giulian got the job right before we left for Las Vegas to meet my parents who graciously drove there with the car we bought, what a sweet relief. Then we had the opportunity to take four days to drive it back making stops in Zion National Park Utah, Bear Lake Idaho, and Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks in Wyoming and Montana! Wow!!! It was actually more like a teaser because we didn't get to spend nearly enough time there. Man it was so beautiful and we just felt incredibly blessed by this trip. We laughed a TON and took our time not to rush the trip but enjoy it, and God certainly used it to grow our love for each other. What a perfect break before this new season in our life begins. Thank you Jesus.


UPDATE: Shortly after returning from our trip God gave me a job working for our church, Downtown Cornerstone, in an administrative role! Amen!

Here are some pics from the trip:

  1. Amazing photos and yes, look at the birds sis. Love y'all & so happy for y'all!!

  2. I've had times as well when I could not see how I was going to make it. In those times, I've believed and prayed the Word. I turn to what is true and not my circumstances. Psalm 37:25. He is faithful and true. Of course, my favorite part that always gives me such great peace is He is sovereign. What a Father!! -mauvianne
