“The Lord will not abandon His people, because of His great name and because He has determined to make you His own people.” 1 Samuel 12:22 (HCSB)
“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 (HCSB)

I could keep going. Verse after verse about how God takes care of us, believers in Jesus Christ. Yet, I’m often amazed at his provision.
Yesterday, I tried to start the dryer but it wouldn’t turn on. It made a loud buzzing sound. I used my phone to video what it was doing. Then, I sent the video to my husband who was at work. I mean, let’s face it, I’m a girl. A video would be easier to describe what was happening better than my words.
My husband is good at fixing stuff. Once, the stove stopped working. I thought I would get a new one. I was kind of excited, but my excitement was belated. He ordered a new element to replace the old one, thereby fixing the stove. So, when he heard my video he thought the dryer would be a quick fix, but it didn’t turn out that way.
We had to sit down and go over our finances. A few months ago, when the flood came through, we lost time at work. That meant we had less income coming in. What money we had saved up disappeared fast. But now, in the past month he has been working a lot of overtime and I feel like we are starting to get back to where we were before.
God is so good! It looks like we will have the money to get a new dryer and not have to use money from savings or have to use the credit card. God knew this was coming, but it still blows my mind. It is times like these when I feel really blessed.
But, I am always reminded that not everyone is as fortunate. There are still people affected by the flood who are not back in their homes. I hope you will pray for them, just as I am. Thanks.
Lord, thank You for providing for me and my family. I ask that You send help to those who are still not in their homes. Let them see the light at the end of the tunnel.
