God Will Provide

For the first time tonight, I attended Wednesday service at Church. I didn’t plan on going.

I had a dinner date with an old friend. I figured since I was already out of my house, I could swing by the Lord’s house.

Then I realized I left my Bible at home. I know me. If I went to pick up my Bible for Church, I wouldn’t have gone at all. Because #homebody

Plus I get nervous doing new things. Nerves are great at convincing us to avoid new situations.

On my way home, I felt calm and relaxed. Like I could go and be okay.

So I went to Church.

Not one minute into the service, a person in the pew behind me gently tapped my shoulder. She gave me a smile and a Bible.

And I knew it was God’s provision. His way of telling me I can trust Him to provide.

P.S: The Pastor preached on faith in action and not using vulgarity. If you’ll excuse me, I got a lot of blog edits to make. Damn.

  1. LOVE IT! Keep walking forward. God will provide for everything. He knows our supply before our demand. That lady was a God set up to give you a Bible. Fabulous blog!

  2. Remember in the last chapter of John, Jesus surprises the disciples while they are out fishing. They have been out in the darkness all night. They have not caught anything. Right after the break of day, right after the coming of the light, Jesus calls to them from shore and asks them if they have any fish. In the pale light of dawn, they do not recognize him. They tell him no because they have caught nothing in the darkness. Jesus tells them to try casting their net off the right side of the boat. When they pull it up, their net is full. (On shore they will count 153 fish.) It is at this moment that they recognize Jesus and Peter jumps into the water and races to shore and the other disciples are in hot pursuit. Jesus has built a fire on shore and is cooking their breakfast: fish and bread (like when he fed the 5000). Jesus seems always ready to care for his sheep.
    When we walk in the light and listen to Jesus, he fills our nets, he provides for us. As soon as the disciples followed Jesus’ command, their net was full.
    “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25
    You listened to the Biblical command to attend corporate worship (to tend to the body of Christ which is the church), and Jesus provided for your needs.
    Amen.
    Thank you for sharing.

  3. Great point on God providing. It’s hard to let go the control we hold in order to let God in charge. Yet he’s the most qualified if only entrust our lives to him. Just part of being human. Thank you for your posts. They don’t go unnoticed.

  4. christianforkids,

    Just cuz lol. Seriously though, I feel like damn isn’t a true swear word if it can be located in the King James Bible. Though I do understand the context is what makes a word a “swear.” For that, I am not excusing myself. However, if you aren’t familiar with my writing style, I should warn you that I am a sinner Christian who loves ironic word play and documenting my adventure in this thing called Christianity. When the Pastor spoke about vulgarity, “damn,” was the first word that popped into my mind. It really was. If you refer to my About page, you’ll see I mention my blog is to share my “authentic” journey and to encourage. Not my, “censored kid-friendly PG fun for the whole family” journey. For what it’s worth… I’ve given up dropping the F bomb… as much… online. #babysteps 🙂
    Blessings,

    Okay. I wasn’t sure about that. I don’t know very much about the King James Version, so thanks for telling me.

  6. Yeah, it’s always interesting to read what it says in the Bible. Believe it or not, many Christians have a lot of misconceptions. I didn’t realize how many I had until I read the Bible in its entirety. I definitely recommend regular Bible readings and Bible studies.
