Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord

We have a signed contract with the government promising health care coverage for Qavah until the age of eighteen. Any testing, treatment, or medication, related to her blood disorder would be covered by Medicaid the contract said. When God decided to take Qavah out of the Foster Care System and place her in our home we didn't say, "only if the government takes care of this." It was a Sovereign God Who placed Qavah in our care. God and God alone is the giver of life, the giver of health, and the giver of all good gifts. We depend daily on His provision for our daughters, and work hard to pay for what they need.

I have been increasingly disgusted by the promises made by our current members of congress as they have been promising the American people a better-than-ever system. Although we have a signed contract with the government's current health care system, we have increasingly paid for more and more medications and services after being refused the promised care.

It is not a government "plan" in which I place my trust. They are not going to take up my cause as the financial squeeze gets tighter. It is my God Who is above all nations, all peoples, and all living things. He will make a way. While we continue to pray for the prosperity of Paul's drill business, we know that everything we have is from God. If we prosper and are able to continue meeting the needs of our girls, that would be a privilege. If He chooses to bless the girls in another way that pleases Him more, so be it. We have been given a mission to honor God by caring for two of His girls. We are dependent on Him for the "how." But our nation is in trouble because we have traded our dependency on God for a dependency on government. While the political parties of our land bicker about government funded abortions or when to "pull the plug on grandma," there is really only one solution:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.
