The Lord Provides

His mercies are new every morning.

His timing is perfect.

He is trustworthy.

He is faithful.

I will trust in Him.

Again, I am blown away by God's provisions. I just want to give HIM the glory. Yesterday I was blessed by a devotional from this site (HERE). It was a great reminder that stepping out in faith requires a risk. Part of it read: If we could see every detail about where God was leading and how He would provide, we wouldn't need faith.

How true is that? We can not see every detail of how life will turn out and that keeps us depending on God. We need to continue to have faith in our Mighty GOD. And as we step out in faith to follow where He leads, we don't have all the plans worked out. We will need God to provide in His timing and in His way.

I was blessed by a mailbox moment. You know the kind, you open a card and out drops a check for the exact amount you need. That is right, for now, the exact money that we needed to continue on showed up as a delivery from God. How fantastic that a member of the body of Christ was tuned into the Spirit and responded in obedience.

I have been trying to figure out how to come up with this particular sum of money and God had it all worked out. He knows our needs and if it is His will, He will bless.

What an amazing thing to be blessed in this way. May God only receive the glory in all that we do.

The exact same thing happened to us! It was an amazing answer to prayer and the sign we needed that we were indeed walking within God's will for our family.
I keep meaning to stop and tell you that I am really excited to be watching your adoption story unfold!

Isn't that just the best-ever?! Words sometimes can not truly express the love we have for God and for those that deliver His message to us on days such as this for you. Very neat.

Oh, I DO LOVE how our LORD meets ALL our needs! I can't wait to watch all of the mountains He moves for you guys... I just know it'll be HUGE!

Also, I LOVED your post on couponing! I think it's AWESOME that God puts other people in our paths to encourage us in our walk just when we need them! I've been out of the blogging ring for so long and have obviously missed many posts just like the one you did. THANKS for the link to Southern Savers.. I can't WAIT to go and check it out.
