God Provides

The other day, as a few of us were talking about recent material needs we've been given, we were amazed at the number of unexpected blessings. God has continued to supply all of our needs and has even given us much more then that! He is faithful!

These blessings include:
  • Dad going to the bread store, and the cashier, upon finding out that he had seven children (yes, seven! [smile]), giving him three large unlabeled loaves of free bread-- it made delicious french toast!
  • a hymn CD in the mail from friends!
  • a check when we weren't expecting it
  • loads of free vegetables
  • more unexpected money that we were able to bless another family with!
  • 8 1/2 yds material for seventeen dollars (if you've bought fabric lately, that's way cheaper then most prices)
  • lots of needed clothing for a dollar a piece
  • two clothing articles for fifteen cents at a thriftstore!
  • free cheerios
  • coupons
  • free steak & pizza from friends
  • more clothes given to us
  • water heater replaced for free
  • free mulch
  • a dog containment system (system with a shock collar and a safe zone to keep your pet in your property) worth a few hundred dollars given to us
  • cat food
  • free nutriton class the helped us with different things regarding health
  • free chiropractor adjustments
  • a new transmission on our van for free!
  • a chain saw for 1/3 of the store price
The blessings above are just the first that came to mind, I know they're others I'm not remembering at the moment. My hope is that this will encourage you to think about ways in which God is also supplying your needs, and to thank Him for it!

"But My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches and glory through Christ Jesus."
Phillipians 4:19
