God IS in the Miracle Business

Yesterday I decided to check ticket prices for flights to Ghana and was most unpleasantly surprised to find out tickets were now $1,000 more than just a couple of weeks ago. And I did it again - put God in a box. Like God doesn't own the cattle on a thousand hills. Like He couldn't provide however much extra we would need. Like whether we need $1,500 or $3,500...He knows.

As we were leaving the house around 6:00 I remembered I hadn't gotten the mail today. You know, never really look forward to it. Usually just bills and junk mail, but today there was something different. A hand addressed envelope with no return address. And inside that envelope was another envelope with "Mercy" written on it. And inside that envelope was

$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100
$100

Just like that...boom...$1,300. Just yesterday the mountain seemed huge and today not so much. That, my friends, is God. And when I doubt or have fear I need to remember this moment and all of the other moments where God has shown His loving faithfulness. He will complete this good work He began.

Thank you Lord and thank you anonymous. We are blown away by God's goodness and your generosity.

"God owns the cattle on a thousand hills,
the wealth in every mine;
He owns the rivers and the rocks and rills,
the sun and stars that shine.
Wonderful riches, more than tongue can tell -
He is my Father so their mine as well;
God owns the cattle on a thousand hills -
I know that He will care for me."

It's those moments of provision that build my faith and say to my heart...Look. God is providing. He will surely bring him/her home.

And it makes me smile.
