I'm a happy person. I am so very grateful for the wonderful family and true friends God has given me. It's a far cry from my childhood and something I take very seriously. I work my tail off home schooling because I want to honor God and offer myself a living sacrifice for His Glory, whereby my walk and not my mouth is my greatest testimony. In the mix of life, I sometimes forget to be still and know He is God and begin to wander in my busy mind about too many things that are truly out of my control: mainly finances and the state of my husband's peace of mind.
We've never had much money, especially compared to American standards, but we've always been rich where it counts most. That leads me to this post. God takes good care of us even though there's no money in the bank. This week, God has blessed me in tiny little ways that have encouraged me that He does and will provide all my needs, down to the tiniest things like removing the binding from school books. I know this, but sometimes, my mind is so busy, I tend to forget. He once told me I was Israel -- wandering the desert, unhappy with my manna, and forgetting He is God. I still struggle with being Israel, but at least for today, I remember who He is, and I am so thankful.
If you don't know Jesus as your savior I can offer this: being under His wing has brought me peace beyond understanding and a sense of wholeness like no other I've ever known; truly, His love reaches far and wide and is indescribable to the point of no words...if you spend time on my blog, you know that "no words" is rather uncommon for this daughter, wife, mother, and sister. May you know Him deeper if you're already acquainted and may you know Him today if you don't already.
Glory to God in the highest, my great Jehovah Jireh.
