God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He's so good to me!
He answers prayer, He answers prayer, He answers prayer, He's so good to me!
Well, low and behold what was finally in the mailbox on Saturday?! Pete's 1st little unemployment check! I've got to be honest, things were starting to look rather grim and glum around here. Yet, small as it is, we knew that it would never met and cover all that needed to be in time.
Then what does God send yesterday afternoon?! Men from my dear sweet little church, with a check and groceries! Seems during services yesterday morning, while I was teaching Children's Church, they asked Bubba to go outside and measure some windows, to get him out of the way. Then they discussed and decided to send a little help our way!! I had not asked for any (from man, just God). As is usual for me, I was waiting till the last minute to seek any help.
Dear ones, this is just one of the many reasons our Lord designed His church to be a body of believers....not believers scattered about to themselves. So He can reach down and meet our needs through the precious Holy Spirit's leading and the Saints.
I'll leave you with this magnificient quote that my dear Sister Trish posted to our AOL Group:
I was regretting the past and fearing the future. Suddenly my Lord was speaking: ""My name is I am."" He paused. I waited. He continued, ""When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I WAS. When you live in the future, with its problems and fears, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I WILL BE. When you live in this moment, it is not hard. I am here. My name is I AM. Helen Mallicoat
