The Lord Will Provide
At some point there may come a time when I am not surprised by the incredible ways God provides for our needs... but today I remain amazed.
Again the Lord has given us more than we could ask for or imagine...
First, we were able to close on the refinance of our home (that we have been working toward since January) last week. This means that not only do we skip a month in payments (on the EXACT month we bring home Ruthie!) but going forward we will pay $200 LESS per month!
Then, one day last week we received an unexpected check in the mail for $300 for the settlement of the townhouse we sold 2 years ago!
Then, the grant that we applied for earlier and were notified about last week was confirmed yesterday- and it is $1,000 MORE than what we even hoped for!
AND THEN today I go to check the mail and say to the Lord "OK Lord, what's today's encouragement going to be?" only to find a $1,100+ check from the bank from the escrows of our original home loan!
When the Lord called our family to adopt, nearly 2 years ago, we knew that He would provide every single dollar we would need. But it's one thing to "know" something and something all together different to "watch" something miraculous happen as we have these last weeks and months... our God is truly our JEHOVAH-JIREH "The Lord our Provider". We are blown away by his generosity and loving kindness.
Our desire in sharing all of this with you is to encourage you that wherever the Lord leads you He too will provide. Jehovah-Jireh will never leave you nor forsake you and he promises to provide for all your needs. Be encouraged and take heart!
One final mind blowing development- yesterday we found out that we will meet our precious birthmother on Mother's Day.
I can't imagine a more appropriate day to hug her for the first time.
19 days and counting!
