God will provide! Won’t he? He will provide when we need him to, right? For a long time now I have had the mind set that God will provide for us in our time of need. But in the back of my mind I have those questions.
This week was the first week in our new season! I started my part time hours at work and when I say part time I mean part time. I am only working two days a week. My hubby and I have been thinking about taking this step for about three years. When our youngest baby was born, which made 4 kids, we thought it might be wise to stay home. I felt I was missing our on our kids and day care was not cheap. We talked about it and talked about it and talked about it but in the back of my mind I never really thought it would happen.
Well it DID happen!! Finally!! I am home (most of the time) with my kids!
BUT now the questions have jumped back into my mind.
Will God really provide? We will have enough money at the end of the month? Will we still be able to go places and do things with the kids? What if we can’t make ends meet?
I now realize those doubts are Satan whispering his lies to me. He really needs to leave me alone!! He has no place in my life and I am finally able to discern Satan’s voice and know that I just need to ignore him and pray, pray, pray!!
Last night after my nightly prayer asking God to help me figure all this out and to provide for our needs even when it gets really tough, I picked up my Prayers and Promises for Mothers book and looked up Faith. Guess what I read??
The title of the prayer was “God will Provide”!!!! How crazy and amazing and totally Godsome is that? I read the prayer and felt like I wrote it. It was exactly how I have been feeling and just what I have been praying for. Read the prayer below!!
(“Dear Jesus, there are several mouths to feed, as well as bodies to clothe, in our family; and we are certainly not wealthy. Of course I am thankful for each member of my family, an I cannot complain about the cost of their food and clothing. I’ve no need to be concerned, because You have always met all our needs. Remind me that You will always provide when the supplies run low–right along with the cash. Faith isn’t easy when our minds are taught to believe only what we see; but faith is rewarding. It is better to walk by faith, because You will never fail us. What we see in this world does have the potential to fail us. So help me live by faith.”)
God Will Provide!! I am listening and I know he hears me as well. We have to live life with complete faith in God. We have to trust fully that if we do as he asks he will make sure we are taken care of. Spending time in his word daily, living what I learn from the Bible and prayer are the keys to a wonderful life!! I am very excited about my new journey and my time with my kids.
God Bless, Crystal!
