God made it clear to me yesterday that he will take care of us. Even though small, he made it known he heard my need.
As you all know, it has been hard to get the essentials we need right now. I definitely took for granted my freedom to go out and get what I wanted when I needed it. Yesterday, I was down to few eggs and knew after I made breakfast I would need more. I had just been to the grocery store on Sunday, hoping to get what I needed to get by for a couple weeks, of course the store I went to had no eggs or carrots ( why carrots, who knows). So knowing I would need eggs I went to another store hoping to find them, which I did. The sign on the glass door said two per person, there were only 6 left and I didn’t feel right taking two in cartons in case someone else was in need, so I took one carton. (one dozen)
Of course by the time Monday rolled around, I wished I would have gotten two. Tuesday Morning I woke up and hoped to make a quick trip to the store, but didn’t want to make more than one stop if I didn’t need to.
I have been following a page called neighbors helping neighbors on Facebook. I figured it couldn’t hurt to write a post and ask if any one knew where I could find eggs. I wrote my need on the designated spot and clicked post. The first response did not even take two minutes and I started receiving text messages from family, letting me know they had eggs to share, a friend face timed me , the neighbor down the street messaged me, and before I knew it I had two and half dozen eggs in my refrigerator and and didn’t even leave my house. When I went back and read the comments relating to my request, I had perfect strangers letting me know they were going to Costco that day and could grab me some. Not to mention all the other helpful comments on where I could find them here in town.
God heard my need and used the people he place around me to make sure that need was met. This reminded me of one of my favorite bible passages in Matthew chapter 8.
Jesus teaches us about worry. Verses 31-34 say, ” So do not worry saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’or ‘What shall we wear?’. For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has trouble of its own.”
Thank you God for showing me you see what I need and for taking care of me.
