Let me tell you….God is SOOOO good! I mean, He is tremendously good. Even when things around us don’t look good, God remains good. This past Sunday, the pastor preached about blessings that don;t match our expectations. he talked about how God blesses us in ways that we never imagined, that don’t fit our definition of a blessing or what not. He says that sometimes we miss the hand of God moving in our lives because we let our expectations stand in the way of us receiving what God is doing. He talked about how God doesn’t do things the way we do and that we have to keep our eyes peeled to see Him move. So today…I experienced a little bit of this. I’ve been believing God to supply my needs, even down to basic needs such as food for the next day. I have money but because my needs have needs, it seems to never be enough; but I prayed and I told God that I believe His Word that says “He will supply all of my needs according to his riches and glory through Christ Jesus.” God will supply my needs and all I have to do is trust Him. So today…my boss was stopping for lunch and I asked him to pick something up for me- I even gave him my check card to purchase my food. So my boss returned with my food, I blessed my food and I began to eat. I didn’t worry about spending money I didn’t have, I just ate. Halfway through my meal, I found something wrong with my food. It was bad, but instead of getting super upset or irate- I simply called the restaurant and explained what was wrong. The staff person was so sweet and apologetic, she made me a new meal and gave me a refund. She also prepared the meal herself and gave me some extra things for free. I went to go pick up my meal and the manager came and gave me some store credit for my next visit so I could get some more free food.
SO I BASICALLY GOT MY LUNCH AND SOME EXTRA THINGS FOR FREE!!!!
When God bless you, it may come in an odd fashion but He sets you up real nice in the end because He is just that good!!!
Until next time,
