When events like our recent banishment unfolded, we had already received a notice that another one of the Lord’s intelligent crafts should be comitted to our trust. And the financial instability we then entered into was not a little threatening. But while we could not say the Lord nay, we were at the time fairly aware that the Lord was ever dependable even if all sources may fails. So I, as often as I could, sought to implore his mercies – that if it were at all possible, that his promised guest would find us faily comforted of him financially.
About three weeks prior to their arrival, I learned of how my brother’s wife had just availed a liberal personal loan. And while I by all means meant not to unnecessarily expressed our somewhat need for financial help. I had to learn that they had purposed to put away part of the sum availed as a reserve. Now because I expected to pay off this one bank loan of my own in three months time. After which I honestly expected to be offered another, I felt there was a valid platform to communicate my need – asking that they particulary lend to me from the purposed reserve. And that I should then repay them back once I should be offered the anticipated one. Of cause I considered the possibility of that not happening. To which reckoned I could ask that they instead let me repay them in monthly installments.
Well to our great consolation, the request was granted and we were lended about $700 USD (R10000). The two major hopes on the sum were to service the old KIA, reattempt the sale and then relocate. Now while at the time of the writting of this journal entry, we neither have a balance from the borrowed sum nor have done any major repairs to the old car, we have with the help of the same loaned sum seen a lot of conveniences around the arrival of the man-child (9th of June). For which goodness anole I bless the Father a lot. As for the car sales or relocation, I take it the He simply has not granted the same should come to pass – and that ours is to wrestle in prayer therefor still.
Grace and Mercy were the reseved female names while Musa and Vunene (both of which translates to Grace and Goodness respectively from Tsonga) were reserved male names – and of cause the latter were used accordingly. And while I am so grateful to God that I am lost for words for the boys, non of the reserved names were meant to denote this gratitude. They instead were meant to simply honor the very attributes of God that each was adapted from – namely mercy, grace and Goodness. Yea blessed be the Lord throughout world without end for His numerous beuatiful attributes. In Christ Jesus – Amen.
