I wanted to share what God has done for us this week.
The beginning of the week didn't start off too well. For starters Leila has had pretty bad separation anxiety since she started preschool. To the point that she has thrown up almost every time I have left her. It's been hard. Last Thursday she lost it all over me and the car before she even made it inside.
Also, Brian is a Federal employee. The government is shut down and there's no telling when it will reopen...The same day of the government shutdown we found out that TEIS would not cover a very expensive piece of equipment that Leila needs. So, we tried not to stress and just started praying for the Lord to provide.
I started trying to figure out what our options were. I had heard about UCP in Nashville from a couple people so I decided to give them a call. They have an equipment exchange program. From what I was told it sounded like they probably wouldn't have exactly what we needed but would probably have something that might work.
So, yesterday I dropped Leila off in Murfreesboro at school and for the first time she didn't cry when the teacher took her from me. First prayer answered! I was already excited from that and Logan and I drove on to Nashville. The lady at UCP showed me the equipment she had put on hold for us and I was about to send a text to Leila's therapist to see if it might work when I spotted the EXACT piece of equipment we needed. She also insisted that we try a stroller they had. So here I am with around $8000 (yes you read that right) worth of equipment in my car to use with Leila that I got completely free and we can use it for as long as she needs it!
To say I had an AMAZING day is an understatement. God answered two big requests all within about an hour and a half.
God answers prayer and he will always provide for His children. It may not always be the way we think it will happen or how we think it should happen but it will happen in His perfect timing.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.
