GospelFriendships Financial Update

Wow. Jesus surprised us bigtime by moving a half-dozen folks to give in unexpected ways in 2020, so that instead of a $5k deficit, we had an $11k surplus, which we've needed for the past several years as our cash balance at the bank has steadily decreased, so that two years ago, I only received half-salary in August, and no salary for the fall months. We always run a deficit in summer and fall, and years ago we had enough cash in the bank to still pay bills. Thank You, Jesus, for this provision! -- WeakDave and Janet


I dislike trusting Jesus


for an uncertain future. Well, my human-wisdom dislikes trusting Him. My human-wisdom wants to UNDERSTAND things, so I can fix things, eliminating or at-least minimizing, uncertainty. That's being responsible, right? WRONG. When I obsess over controlling outcomes, that's what an atheist does. No wonder atheists aren't impressed with us.


What does a Jesus-dependent do? Curious/expectant to see what SovereignShepherdJesus does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. At peace in the face of uncertainty -- even scary, because Jesus is Lord, not my human-wisdom.
