Another guy I love~George Mueller

I've lost count of how many books I've read about George. He's my hero. This godly man cared for over 10,000 orphans in his lifetime. George was a man of incredible faith whose #1 goal in life was to glorify God by trusting in Him for EVERY NEED. He vowed never to ask anyone for money. When faced with a financial need, he would say, "How the means are to come, I know not; but I know that God is almighty, that the hearts of all are in His hands, and that, if He pleaseth to influence persons, they will send help." And he would pray and wait until the need was met. It is estimated that the equivalent of around $150 million dollars in today's currency passed through George Mueller's hands during the 19th century.

This is how we want to live our lives as a family. God has taught us a lot over the past 14 years. We've discovered that if we seek His kingdom and righteousness first, we will have all we need (Matthew 6:33). We've learned to owe no man anything but love (Romans 13:8) We've learned that if we give, it will be given to us abundantly (Luke 6:38). He is a loving Father who supplies all our needs (Philippians 4:19) and He WILL provide (Genesis 22:14). We have so many testimonies of His provision for us when we trusted and obeyed Him!
