Default Share a blessing

Psalm 139 tells us how well God knows every detail of our lives. Its my favorite chapter in the Bible. Nothing proved it more than something that happened over 30 years ago. DH and I were trying to make ends meet, but we had run out of toothpaste! Of all things, we just couldn't squeeze one more drip from it. So, I prayed. I prayed that God would send me money so I could buy toothpaste. Oh, how shortsighted I am. Later the same day UPS knocked. I had a package, but I hadn't ordered anything. Inside the package? Not one, but TWO tubes of toothpaste! Just proved to me that he knows my needs, he takes care of those needs, and he does it even better than I could ever have imagined!

Share a blessing!

That is so awesome! Thank you for sharing! Did you ever find out who sent it? I divorced a couple of years ago, and it has been very difficult financially. (I knew it would be, but I was so over it I was ok with sleeping on an air mattress and eating peanut butter out of a jar if I had to ). Twice I've received Visa gift cards- one for $100 that came in the mail with no return address and no note. A couple of weeks ago, the pastor of the church where I'd just completed a divorce recovery workshop forwarded me a Visa card for $300.Someone had given it to him to forward to me. Both times I thought I was doing ok, until I got those cards and there's no way I would have made it without them! That last one so helped me with buying groceries! God does, indeed, know our needs!

After my divorce, I was in a very bad way financially. I had always been a sahm and homemaker. I was getting very little child support and desperately trying to make ends meet and keep the utilities on. I was stressed and fretful all the time. I prayed for God to please help me in any way he saw fit... a knock came on my door one day. It was a gentleman I knew from 4H. (my girls showed horses) He was interested in buying a large, old horse trailer that was sitting in my driveway. I had no use for it, because it was a gooseneck trailer and my ex had taken his truck. In addition, he wanted to pay me for it on the spot, even though he said he wouldn't be able to come pick it up for a couple weeks from then. It was such a blessing and a wonderful reminder that God was indeed listening to my prayers. =0)

I am really praying this prayer today; I just found out my son's car is in need of $900 worth of repair. His dad and I will split it; but I can't exactly say I have $450 on hand. God keeps on providing, so I will pray He continues! And I would really appreciate some prayers for this!

Praying God will continue to provide. We have a prayer group over here if you'd like more prayer warriors on the job!
