Dear friends, I would like to share a glorious praise report with you:
If you've read 'On the Treetop,' then you are aware of a most tender place in my heart... a bruise that has been a long time in healing. And you're also aware that the cottonwood, the apple tree, and the pecan tree around the place I currently reside are all without leaves. But of course, it is the last day of January. Right?
Also, if you have read much of my writings or know me personally, then you also know I have been unsure of where I will live soon. And you might also know that I have been working toward publishing some books, but wasn't real sure how I'd finance it as what little money I had would be used toward moving expenses.
Well, let me tell you... I woke yesterday to find the apple tree thick, thick with blossoms. It isn't even spring! The neighbor decided she wanted to invest in a comb binding machine for me after having seen only one piece of my work. I also found a home and paid the deposit on it this morning. But the icing on my cake was being informed that my son will be living with me there.
Why the apple tree? I don't have a clue. But I sure do feel like the apple of God's eye right now. I can't seem to stop wiping tears. And I just wanted to take this time to publicly praise Him. I am overwhelmed by the goodness of my King.
I also want to thank every one of you who took even 1/4 of a second to pray for me. I appreciate you so much and have grown to love so, so many of you. May the Lord bless you also, abundantly above all that you could ever hope for.
Rejoicing with you, Joyce. His mercies never cease, nor are a moment late. They restore the soul day and night. Thank you for give us the opportunity to petition His grace and celebrate His visible goodness yet again.
Praise God for He is an awesome God. He is Jehovah Jira, God the Provider. I am so glad to hear such a wonderful praise report. I know that I was among the many people praying for you my sister and friend. I rejoice with you for the Lord has made you glad. Keep the faith and continue to celebrate in His mercy(which endures forever). So very happy for you. God bless. In Christ's love, Christian
I was so hoping (and praying) that you would post something here as soon as you knew. Thank you! Praise God for your blessings! He is good ALL THE TIME, we just don't recognize it sometimes. I've been praying, but haven't read 'On The Treetop' yet. It seems to me though (having read much of your writing), that you and I have much in common. I'm going there right now. I am so happy for you. God bless. Love, Tammy
Oh dearest Treava, I want to stand with you, and give thanks and praise to His name, with you and for you. Our God is awesome, and is doing awesome things for you, of which we all are so glad and rejoice with you. This Ps. came to mind: Ps. 126:1-When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. (2) Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them. Love, Sharon
Treava, I am shouting for joy with you over the overflow of blessings. I knew you were close to a breakthrough. God is never late, always on time.
Praise the Lord, He has seen your heart and the character He has produced there. He longs to bless you. Amen
Treava, it appears that our Lord...THE LORD, has provided a table for you, right in the middle of your wilderness. Hmmm..apple pie? Blessings to you. When we go through a dark time, and keep our eyes, by faith, on Jesus to see us through, our roots go down a little deeper in Him. This is the "establishing" of the Lord!
I'm so happy for you, Sis! As you continually depend on God's goodness and grace, by being His trusting and obedient child, expect more abundant blessings on the way. "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalms 37:4
