Surrender, pray, and watch God do miracles

On Monday I had to shell out some serious cash 
that in the end left me with very little and no cushion.
 To say my heart stopped and I suddenly felt nauseous is a bit of an understatement governor. 
So I did the only logical thing after experiencing such lovely feelings;
I laced up my shoes, put my headphones in, and went for a run.
Once I was moving I started trying to figure out how to fix the problem 
that was basically the size of Everest when I'm basically the size of an ant.
 And that's when God tripped me. Figuratively of course, I'm super graceful, and super sarcastic.
God is bigger then any problems that I have, am, or will face. 
In that moment I handed control back over to God.
I told myself I was not going to worry anymore,
but instead I would trust and wait for God to show His power, 
and continue providing for our needs. 
I surrendered complete control
and as a result felt a wave of peace wash over me.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.
 Phil 4:19

My computer was opened when I got back from my run and I noticed I had received an email.
It was a short, sweet, simple, knock me over, clearly delivered by God, kind of email.
One of those emails that causes your mouth to drop, tears to fall, 
that cause you to look up to the heavens, speechless at God's power kind of emails.
Specifically it was an email from my church telling me I had been approved 
a certain amount of money to continue my work in Rwanda. 
You had better believe I did a little dance, praising God
and am still in absolute awe of His power and continued provision.
I serve an awesome God.
