When God Provides

Malachi 3:10

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Since having my son and him having his severe milk allergy, our budget said we could NOT afford the $400-a-month formula.  It didn't work on paper but God provided.  My husband's employer's business started booming and then came the overtime.  Without that overtime, we wouldn't have had the money to buy my son's sole source of food!  That scared me but God never failed.

Not only did God provide the money for the formula, he also provided some astounding blessings, one being my couch.  I didn't think I would ever get this "dream" couch but God opened a door for us and it was just standing wide open and we were blessed.  Sometimes God makes the impossible - possible, just to show us that not only can he provide and meet our needs but He will also meet some of our WANTS!

The new year is on the horizon in a few months and this means some serious increases in our health insurance.  It doesn't work on paper.  However, we are going to stand by our principles of no debt and not leaning on the government but leaning on GOD!  And if the past is any indication of the future - my God will make the impossible; possible!!

Bev,
Praise God for His provisions for your family! My husband's job is partially funded by the State in which we live. About 4 years ago our State cut programs like my husband's job. This was before we were saved, so pretty much we freaked out! I thought I was going to have to find a job, the kids were going to have to go to public school and basically we would be poverty stricken. Our State is currently 9 months behind in paying for the services in which my husband provides, and he has nearly had to lay off his entire staff, but somehow the money always came through. It was NOT working on paper, it was NOT in any way logically going to work, but God has provided for my husband's business to remain open in the most corrupt, financially irresponsible State in our Country!
I am still at home, still teaching my kids and thanking God everyday for what He has provided for our family!
