There's Always a Raven

Ahhhhhh! I can’t believe I’m doing this!

That’s literally all I thought when making this. I wanted to do something a little different and realize that it is always easier to hear or see because there isn’t always time to stop and read. Well, I did it, I made a youtube video. I’ve been waiting to do this for a while and frankly, I’ve been holding onto this video because it isn’t perfect. I can see all my mistakes, things I should’ve done beforehand, things I should’ve done after, shoot, even things I should’ve done during. But something amazing happened after I made and edited this video. I made this video not because all my provisions were met the minute I asked, not because everything was going smoothly, and definitely not because I had the perfect faith and not a worry in sight. – No worries? Imagine that – It was the exact opposite, we were in the middle of great need. While making this, my fiancé and I were praying hard for provision, we had more questions than answers and had major, fork in the road kind of needs. One need being met or not, meant our lives could be greatly affected. I made the video anyway, I felt led to and I believe every word I shared, I believe in the faithfulness of God. I believe His character to be unchanging and I believe what David said in Psalm 37:25; “I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken…” . I didn’t realize that as I’m studying and talking about the way God had ravens provide food for Elijah, God had been lining up figurative ravens to provide for us. Two days after I made and edited this video, God not only answered our prayer, but surprised us by giving us exceedingly, abundantly more than we asked for. I can truly say that I have never seen the righteous forsaken and during the most difficult time of my young adult life, He has not left me lacking. I hope this video encourages you and reminds you in the midst of your need; there is always a raven! Like it, comment, share it and subscribe on youtube for more videos.
