The Lord surprises me sometimes, well really often. It shouldn't but it does.
I had all my orders complete. I had ordered fabric for my new samplers, which I was anxiously waiting for. I saw my depleted bank account but was trying to not fret over how we were doing food and menu plans next week. My daughter was invited to two birthday parties for this month... you see where I am going.
Today a box arrived with fabric in it. My friend wants a quilt for her brother. I had already said yes this summer. I thought honestly I would have finished the order by now, its fine though I have none, I have plenty of time. It is a simple request. It also had a check to cover my expenses and also the batting that she did not find.
So now I have grocery money once again. With the recent rain we just had and then this provision, I thought of this bible verse
Deuteronomy 28:5, 11-12
5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. 11 The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
12 The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
I love the idea of this verse! What a promise to have.
As we continue to move through this new season in life I am also reminded of Psalms 35:27
27 May those who delight in my vindication
shout for joy and gladness;
may they always say, “The LORD be exalted,
who delights in the well-being of his servant.”
