Perspective

My granddaughter is fine, but she was in a little accident. She’s so small and precious, it is hard to have her hurt, even a little.

A few days later my sister’s message  gave me a proper perspective: Praising God again this morning for protecting G and providentially sending someone to help at just the right time.

Praise God for the good He does, even when bad things happen.

 

 

More than Enough

We rented a storage unit for our household goods, even though it seemed too small. It was all they had. The night before we moved we read how Jesus fed 4,000 men with a few small fish and 7 loaves (see Mark 8:1-9). We prayed, “Lord, you fed 4,000 with a few fish. Will you make that storage unit big enough for all our stuff?

As we packed the unit from floor to ceiling, our friend said, “You have to see this, look at the angle of cut of that leg, it’s flush against the chair. It looks like it was planned.”

At the end of the day, we had room left over.

We thanked God together for fitting about 4,000 things into a fish-sized space.

Ask for what you need

On Sunday, we saw 2 woodpecker holes on our house trim. My husband, who can do almost anything, said he could fix them, but not without a forty foot ladder. We prayed about our need. (We know where to rent one, but our car is small.)

On Wednesday I drove through town, asking the Lord if there was ladder we could use. I noticed a Comcast truck with a ladder, but it didn’t seem right, so I kept praying. I passed the fire station; they have ladders, but woodpecker holes aren’t an emergency so I didn’t stop. Then I saw two men using a big tall ladder. I stopped. I prayed for favor. I asked if I could rent their ladder. They offered to deliver it to our house.

It’s Thursday morning. The woodpecker holes are fixed and I’m waiting for them to pick up their ladder.

If you need something, remember to pray about it. And after you’ve prayed, look for God’s answer.

(These men live an hour from our town. I think God gave them a job here, yesterday and today, so we could use their ladder. I told them they were an answer to my prayer. I’ll tell them again today. God will be glorified.)
