Fast Day 3

So on July 1st, Karina and I started fasting that I can get a better job and better money. Things are really tight right now so please be praying for us. Our fast is not allowing any meat or dairy. And no sodas or candy per se. I am opting not to put up a daily weight loss amount because I do not want to get focused on it. But I will let you know if I did lose any at the end of it.

1st Day

I worked hard today not just beginning to learn the menu but also serving it to guests. My trainer suggested I jsut start taking tables and that is exactly what I did. I served a lot of lunches today, made a little money, and used it to buy some happy hour food in order to learn the menu a little bit. Overall not a bad 1st day at my new job

Prayer Comes Through

I just wanted to share a story that happened last week.
Sunday I was writing my tithe check, and I was arguing with God over a difference of $50 in the total.  I had the whole check written; Date, Addressee, Note, Signature, everything but the amount. Karina was practically in tears watching my silent struggle during the worship time to give God that extra $50. I did it eventually, but it was hard. Things are tight for everyone.

Tuesday, I am working, its a decent night, nothing big until at 7:30ish we got a huge pop. And the people were generous to say the least. I made more money that night than any other night at the restaurant in my 1.5 yrs of being there.

Two days later, I find out my little foster-brother-in-law Alex, had asked my in-laws if they could all pray for my tips on Tuesday night, at 7:30ish. That specific of a prayer. They didn’t even know about the tithe incident.

God came through. It was amazing.

Just wanted to share the blessing that God gave me, it allowed me to do special things for Karina’s birthday that week.
