He Always Provides
As I was walking back from our garden this morning I saw this little blue robin's egg and I thought, "Oh! Blue! I can link up to You Capture!" And I thought, "new life! I can link to unwrapping His Promises"...but then I thought of Matt 6:26 and realized I really need to be writing about trusting in God to provide because we're in that season...and have been for quite some time.
Somehow they fit together though. New life and trusting God.
We're still waiting to hear back from our agency on whether we will be approved to foster parent through them. In so many ways that will bring new life to our family. Through the lives of the little ones that we will be blessed to care for and through the new chapter of our life that will be born when we add children to the mix! Our hearts are ready and waiting but we trust in God's promise to provide...in His way, at His time.
In other areas we're learning to trust also. When one of our main sources of income took a nose dive this past January...all we could do was trust that God would provide. He did and He continues to! God has been in the midst of it all. Teaching us lesson after lesson about giving and helping others-giving money, giving time, sharing what we have...showing us His promise to care for us when our trust is in Him.
It's been tough in our struggles to let go and believe the promise that He will always provide but we're learning. And through the struggling and the waiting He has grown us and shaped us. And despite ourselves and all the problems we come with, He loves us unconditionally and He provides everything we need. And so much more! So we're learning to rest in His promises as we find peace and joy on this journey...right here, in this moment.
