"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
The pastor talked about asking God to provide and asking for His favor. He said that Hope implies expecting something good, something favorable from God. And the scripture above says that He will give us joy and peace as we trust in Him! Isn't He amazing! I continued to to pray and give it all to God, especially the part about the Air Force. Well, on Monday, the doors were absolutely shut with the ROTC program with these two remaining schools. While both schools do have the program, it's actually held in a big city where the students have to travel an hour to go to their ROTC classes 10 hours a week (I did not like the idea of Hayden driving an hour into the big city once a week with his little, old truck). Both coaches feel that it would not work with playing football, going to college and studying, it would just be too hard to do. We were bummed about it, but I'm thankful for the answer and I got such a peace about it.

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." II Corinthians 4:16-18
"Therefore I say to you, Whatever things ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."Mark 11:24
"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all He hath done for thee." Psalm 103:2
Can I also ask a few of you prayer warrior friends of mine to please pray for us too? Thank you so much! God is so faithful and so good!
