Life right now feels like a money storm. I’m reminded of the storm in which the disciples found themselves, and I’m trying to trust Jesus as they should have. (c.f. Matthew 8:23-27) I won’t embarrass you with the list of things about which we are tempted to worry, but I will tell you about some of the cool ways God has carried us through so far.
Recently someone gave us a gift of $500. Here is what that gift brought us: 1 washer, 1 dryer, 1 TV, 1 couch, 1 love seat, and a dinner out for Cathy and me (per giver’s request). At some point in the past I had looked ahead to these things and feared the price tag, but not only did God provide us an unexpected gift, He multiplied the gift many times by providing unexpected bargains.
I could repeat this example verbatim for our two cars, only changing the amounts.
So looking ahead we’ll keep our attention on Jesus.
