I follow the blog A Place called Simplicity regularly and each week Linny posts something to remind us all of God's faithfulness. This week I want to post something He has done for us in the last 24 hours.
Jim and I are trying hard not to use the credit card and get completely out of debt. However, this is very difficult in a good month, but especially hard during months like this when we have so many extra activities going on. So here I am sitting in church yesterday thinking that we had no time to drive home and eat after church, then drive to another town to pick up two of the kids who had spent the night with friends, and then be back at church early for our Easter musical. I just really didn't see how we could do it, but there was no money to eat in town and then go get the kids. So during the end of the service I began to ask God about it. Not the whole bow your head and pray, just mentally say, "Okay God, I need you to show up." The service ended and Jim walked up front to get his music from the keyboard and then he waves me over. The music minister and his wife want to take us out for lunch!!! I was like WOW, that was fast work God!
Isn't God good!!! He cares for us in the little things. He knows how much we want to honor Him by being debt free and how hard we are trying. His timing is so perfect. When I shared this with the music minister and his wife, she told us that she had actually cooked lunch before church, but just decided she wanted to go out instead. That is so God!!
