26 Jul

Last year when Mark and I got married figuring out our budget was certainly a learning experience. Things were pretty tight as we tried to figure out how to do this marriage thing and one one morning in the mail we received BOTH the Mustang and Truck DMV registrations.The total was around $480 which was a lot for the two of us. (It still is!)

That morning my little daily devotional was about how God provides.

Sometimes I think God does things just to prove He can and He is in charge. The VERY SAME day we received a FedEx envelope with a completely unexpected gift of a $500 American Express Gift Card.

I certainly don’t expect God to arrange to get me an Amex Gift Card every time my bills come due that I am not prepared for. But sometimes I think the things He does are so obvious I just can’t help but notice.

We just got the registration bill for Mark’s truck (just one bill this year since we sold the Mustang and have not purchased a new car yet). This year we are prepared for it and have saved up money to cover the cost. But when it arrived I immediately thought of last year’s bill and it made me happy because God is still providing.

    Isn’t it crazy when these things happen?!? Such a testament to the Lord knowing our needs.
