I recently texted with my friend, Lindsay. I specifically messaged her about a Facebook comment I saw her make on another friend’s page.
I was overjoyed about what she had posted on Facebook. As a matter of fact, it quickly caused me to send her a joyful, yet dorky text message. (This friend is one of the few that sees my dorkiest of texts!)
Anyway, as it turned out, I found out that God was going to use her and her family to be a big answer to my family’s homeschool co-op concerns.
I will not bore anyone with the details, but here is a quote of what I texted Lindsay that day:
“Yay, wooowhooo, woot woot, and a hallelujah from the back row!”
Lindsay and I then texted back and forth about the goodness of God and how He truly works out things for the good of His children.
God has been heavily teaching me this very concept for the last 2 years. I have never doubted His love, yet it has just clicked over the last two years how much God can really “pull off” the meeting of our truest needs and deepest concerns.
From finding the perfect pants for my child’s specific needs in *just* the nick of time, to finding the close parking spot when I am in an environment in which I do not feel safe, to my children finding a friend that makes them comfortable in a brand new or awkward environment, to my son finding just the right food/drink options when experiencing new food sensitivities—I give the credit to God and His creative resolutions to my personal concerns.
Do I believe that God always makes the way easy? Definitely not! Far from it! After all, the name of this blog shows I know that life can be bumpy at times.
Yet, I could name numerous examples of God meeting my family’s true needs—and sometimes in the most creative of ways (such as Lindsay and our homeschooling example).
I purposely kept this blog post on the shorter side this week. I would love to hear your examples of God’s workings and need-filling in your life! Please share any personal examples in the comments below.
Let's get our praise on,
