It is Thanksgiving in the US (I am Canadian) and I have been thinking so much lately about my blessings. I had some bad news this week (of a financial nature) that could have really thrown me off. I realized I had been counting on that money a bit too much. I had made plans for my son’s birthday and for Christmas. I wanted to stew and mull a bit.
But, then after the shock and disappointment lifted, I said out loud, “God is my source and my provider.” The day before I had shared a testimony of God’s goodness to several people via text. God reminded me that he is always there with me.
When I was in my wilderness season, I memorized Philippians 4: 11- 13:
“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”God gave me some action steps to follow in the natural to make it through this time (instead of dwelling on what I had “expected” to happen). I listened and stepped out in faith. Then, he surprised me, yet again, with his goodness!
He provided (in a very unusual way) a birthday cake for my son (and muffins for me- we both share a birthday on November 29). Each year we usually buy two cakes- chocolate for him, and carrot cake for me. Guess what flavors the Food Bank gave us? God cares about the little things- even the birthday treats…wow!
I have so many blessings. I have a wonderful family, a warm house, resources at my disposal (I will share a link to a faith- based bundle for Christian women that my products, including the printable poster in the picture above are in).
I have so many amazing new (and old) friends that I have made in this soon-to-be half century of life. I know that God leading me I am so grateful to the seeds that have been sowed into me, the roots that are developing in good soil, and the growth I have experienced.I know that was made for such a time as this and God will finish the great work he has started.
Thank you all for being a part of what I am thankful for this day,
Keep Bloomin’ in Him,
