God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Thank You Lord

So it seems these days in the life of the Bentley’s that God is moving HIS hand in BIG ways. We have so much to be thankful for and I want to be faithful to share with all of you about how God is moving.

I posted recently that a family at our Church is going to be allowing us the use their townhome just out of Charleston for as long as we need it when Anna Grace is born. This is such a huge blessing for our family and we are overwhelmed and this family’s generosity and in how the Lord has provided for our need, but it is something that we weren’t praying for. Truly, we had been praying about the Ronald McDonald House and for God to work out the details with it. However, there is a lady at our Church, Ms. D, who came up to us after we made the post about the townhouse in Charleston and told us that SHE had been praying for God to provide us a house for us in Charleston and that the Lord would NOT provide the Ronald McDonald House. The Lord answered the prayer of this faithful saint in such a big way. We were truly blown away. This person also shared that she has been praying for something specific in her own life which the Lord has not yet answered for her, but HE showed her that HE does HEAR. What a comfort to us all to know that our Lord hears our prayers!!!!!! Halleluiah!!!!

Something else BIG going on in our life right now is a fundraiser which our friends are hosting for us on November 2. Many of you have probably already received an e-vite to the fundraiser. This all came about because some dear sweet ladies that I go to MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) with wanted to do something for our family. These ladies came up with the idea of hosting a spaghetti dinner to raise money for our family’s medical expenses. Now, as for the details of the event – all I really know is that it is going to be held on November 2 at 6:00 pm at Starry Nights in Inman , SC. These ladies are doing all of the cooking for the event, which, boggles my mind. I can’t even imagine how to logistically prepare to feed so many people, but these ladies are volunteering their time and talents to prepare this for our family. Wow!!!! I am so overwhelmed by the generosity of so many people. God is again showing Himself as our PROVIDER in this. Everyday HE is showing us that we are not alone and that HE is providing for us. I am so humbled, truly I am humbled and certainly convicted about how many opportunities I have missed to help others in their time of need. May God OPEN MY EYES to see opportunities where He would have me minister to others needs!!!!!

I also want you all to know that we thank you for continuing to pray for our family. So many of you are faithfully praying for Anna Grace and for Zachary and for our family and our needs. Thank you, we hope that you know how much we love and appreciate all of you.

I know that we shouldn't need to see God answering prayers, but it is so nice to that He sees fit to show us anyway. It's enough of a drink to carry us on to the finish line. Thanks for sharing!
