“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:19
We raise our hands in praise today for God’s goodness. We were short of paying for the books that we had printed for this year’s shows. Our tax return covered a huge portion, but we were short by $1000. We decided not to tell anyone else, but to ask and wait upon the Lord. George Mueller was our example as he prayed and waited upon God to feed his orphans in England. (If you haven’t read his biography, you should. It is amazing.) Anyway, the deadline was approaching – the end of March. We stopped between shows in GA at Tracy’s office there. His two bosses also met that week. These two men of God had decided a week before to give Tracy mileage money from Texas to GA! It amounted to just what we needed! Thank you sweet friends!
God also filled me up with friendship as I got to visit with two amazing women! They are my husband’s bosses’ wives and we met 20 years ago at seminary, but we live in three different places. I walked away rejoicing at my God’s provision.
Hint of the day: Look to God for your needs. He cares for you. He has provided cowboy boots and groceries, a computer and a car. Take your needs to God and then remember to praise Him and thank Him for His goodness. We keep a journal of God’s provision in our lives, so that we don’t forget His goodness. Don’t forget to point out to your kids God’s provision. That will build their trust in Him.
