I wrote this on Sunday morning sitting in church:
"Even though my car is broken and stuck at Walmart parking lot
Even though I have no money to fix it or tow it
Even though I have $1 to my name and that is one I borrowed from my daughter
Even though I have no way of getting the financial resources I need to meet the needs I have this day
Even though my husband wants a divorce and has abandoned me
Even though he no longer helps me or provides for our kids
Even though I have no idea of what I'm going to do and am completely at a loss
I will rejoice in the Lord and thank Him
I will trust in His holy Name
I will seek His face and put all my hope in His goodness and lovingkindness
I will look in His eyes and trust in His love for me
I will remind myself of His promises
And will have confidence in His Word
He has said that He will supply all my needs.
I put my trust in You, Lord.
You are my God, my Father, my Savior, my Helper, my Provider, my Strength, my Hope, my Beloved.
My heart belongs to You."
Three days later, I sit here with my car in the driveway completely fixed, a kitchen full of groceries, money in the bank and a heart overflowing with gratitude and thanksgiving. Through the kindness and generosity of my small group at church and even through my estranged husband, God has supplied my needs.
"I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me." Psalm 13:5,6
