He Supplies All Our Needs

"But my God shall supply all your needs
according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus"
Philippians 4:19

I am so thankful for this verse. The idea that the Lord will supply all our needs is amazing. My deepest desire this winter, outside of electric blankets and heaters, was for new windows. Recently this month I found myself with eight quilt orders. I was a little concerned at how I would manage it all. Last night I finished that last order. Those eight orders will provide us with one room of new windows. In fact yesterday in the mail I got a card for $25 off $250 in purchases from Lowes, if we use our discover card to pay for it. Therefore, the provision was granted a step further.
For us windows probably are our deepest need at the moment. We have had some rough winters here in Texas over the last couple of years, and our summers are getting equally as hot on the opposite scale. All three kids will be home this summer, there is no summer school, or camps this year so I worry about the heat of our house with no AC, in the main dwelling areas. I am excited to see how HE continues to work in our lives. How I can continue to work very hard on the orders that HE is providing us and it continues to provide the little things that we need to make lives a little more normal.
I am thankful for this promise, which is exactly what this verse is, a promise to us that HE will provide our needs. Now this is not just a want type thing, this is a true need, such as clothing, food, shelter. I am so grateful to have a Gracious Heavenly Father that takes care of us and continues to see to our daily lives.

  1. Jenn, keep the faith. I know how hard this is, but our faith doesn't go unrewarded. Also, I want to share with you Matt 21:21-22 anything you pray for with faith you will receive. I continue to pray for your family. God is awesome and He never disappoints!

    Love & Blessings
