GOD, THE PROVIDER: Are there times in life when you are just not sure if you will be able to ever pay for anything again? Money is short, emotions are tapped, physically you have nothing left, and spiritually you are dry. Well, our local banks can’t help us much, but we have a God whose nature is to provide for those whom He loves. Our God is the ultimate provider in all circumstances, and we can trust Him to provide as He see best.
This is the description of the elective I will be leading at two weeks of camp this summer. Those of you who have known me, or anything about me in the last three years, are laughing hysterically. Stop it!
God, The Provider…where do I begin? As I was sitting here sorting through lots of thoughts I started thinking. There seems to always a common thread (other than the obvious God provides) that appears as you start to look at the different times you’ve realized God provided for you again. The thread I’ve discovered through my experiences is that God is always preparing me for the next step.
I know there are others who are learning this or have learned this the hard way and I wondered what their thread looked like. Why not ask?! Have you seem God provide for you over and over again? Have you had to learn and relearn that lesson several times? If so, what common thread did you discover looking back? I would love to hear your story.
