All things are possible for You....

The girls on Easter.Sorry that it has been awhile since I have last posted. A lot has been going on in the Elliott house. Matt lost his job a little over a week ago. He has applied at a lot of places but has not heard anything yet. I have had some tears and some stress eating that I am trying to get under control.

I was thinking a lot the week before Easter of my worries, continually giving them to the Lord. I remembered the Lord right before He was about to die. Do you know that He was so troubled before He went to die that He was sweating actual blood? In Mark 14 it says that He was greatly distressed and troubled....yet He never sinned. In verse 36 he prayed, "Abba ,Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what You will." Now getting ready to die to be the atonement for the sins of the world, that is something to be troubled about. I was thinking on that to put my own troubles in perspective for me.

I know that God could give Matt a job today. I don't doubt that at all. He cares for us more than sparrows. I am still fighting the sin of worry. I have about 5 weeks of teaching left and then I am done for the summer and no more pay checks. Please pray with me that he gets a job.
He has been working really hard to get one.


  1. I'll be praying for you guys Kelli!
    When things get really slow for my dad God always provides in incredible ways, and I know He can provide with exactly what you need.

  2. I will be praying! We are self-employed and have been "in that place" many times! God is so AMAZING, so incredible to see Him provide in ways that you would never imagine! Can't wait to hear what He does!

  3. i'll be praying for your family! my hubby was laid off three years ago, two weeks after we bought our house. he worked side jobs and temp. jobs until we got blessed recently with an awesome career with an amazing company. we prayed fervently. we trusted the Lord and did not give up. though it was really hard some days, we had to learn to truly cast our cares on Him and believe He would supply our needs. and He did...every. single. time. not in our timing, but in His. God is so good! even when our knees are shaking and our time-line approaches (and sometimes passes by), He continually is working on your behalf. xoxo
