1 out of 29
We have officially paid 12 months of mortgage payments! It is true we only have 29 more years to pay on our home in Long Island, NY. Yes, the homes are expensive. Yes, the taxes are outrageous! But God has called us here to live and do ministry. I think that is one of the biggest reasons why anyone would stay on Long Island – it is a mission field! And a BIG one at that!
Over the last 12 months we have see the faithfulness of God. At the end of the day our income barely (if it does) meets our expenses, but somehow every bill is paid – and on time! It reminds me of a quote I heard over a decade ago – “Where God guides he always provides.”
God has met every need. Why? I believe it is because we practice the art of tithing. I know it sounds crazy, but we give 10% of all of our income back to God (through the local church). From salaries to birthday income to family support – we tithe on everything. It is what we think to be the key to us surviving the expense of Long Island. And it has been an amazing ride!
29 more years … 348 more payments … but God is with us!
Be faithful to God in all areas!!!
