October 9th: Stephenie Weaver “Relying Fully on God”


“Glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of – infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” Ephesians 3:20

Our family was complete. My husband and I had one daughter and two sons. We were happy with the live we were living. God had other plans for us. Our lives changed in July of 2015. Chloe was born to my cousin on June 30, 2015. I had only seen my cousin a handful of time. My uncle had visited us a week prior to Chloe’s born. This also was unusual. I think the last time I seen him was when my dad had passed away and before that I could not tell you when. He told me that his daughter was going to have her baby in the next week at Bloomington Ind. Unknown to me God had been working in our life. Isaac our youngest had been going to the eye doctor in Bloomington. So we were getting familiar with this place,not knowing God’s future plans for us. My uncle texted my mom to let her know that his granddaughter was born and sent her a few pictures. My mother called me to let me know that Chloe was born and that the state wastaking her and place her with my uncle. I called him and told him that we would love to help him out in any way we could. We would even take her into our home. On July 4, 2015 my uncle, his wife and Chloe came to our home. My uncle took her back home (Evansville) with him. Two days later my oldest daughter and I went to Evansville and brought Chloe back with us. How our world would change over the next two years. I have always had a trust issue, and what a way for God to show me to let go and fully rely on him.
