Manna

“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”
Lamentations3:21-26

I know you are going to start rolling your eyes when I keep telling you the blessings God has been pouring out on our family. But I can’t keep them to myself. He has been so good to us. We are still struggling financially, but God keeps throwing out a life line that keeps us from going completely under.

I walked out to our mailbox and found a letter from a friend. I opened the letter and read the note. It said that her husband had worked some extra shifts and they wanted to share the blessing with another family. She said they had prayed about who to give the money to and God led them to us. They sent us $100. I was flabbergasted to say the least! I read it to my kids and we all wrote thank you notes to the family.

Everytime I turn around God uses his children to show me his love. I can’t remember a time when we have been blessed more. It seems we are in a desert now, but God keeps showering us with manna.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
