'' What? We're short on rent? How much?.. Oh, well I think I may have that much in my wallet if we borrow from the Christmas account.''Immediately my mind began to worry. What about Christmas? We promised each of the kids are certain budget to spend on the name they drew within our family. Some had already gone shopping, others hadn't. How was this going to work? We still needed a second vehicle and the fuel tank would eventually need filling. We had the fruits and vegetables I had canned over the summer, but we were out of meat. There were other needs as well. Where was the money going to come from? A quiet voice whispered in my heart. ''Haven't we been here before? What have you learned? Do we need to keep coming back to this test?''''Oh, right. I know Jehovah Jireh. Lord, you have been faithful. You have proved yourself over and over again. What was that verse I read again just this morning? 'Just enough for this day's daily bread. No more or I may disown you... No less or I may steal and dishonor you.' Thank you that today we have enough for rent. Today we have a warm, comfortable house. We have clothes and food, and we are all healthy. Today, we are blessed. Would I complain about the manna on my plate? I will not worry about tomorrow. 'Great is Thy faithfulness.' I sung it at the top of my lungs in the shower. My daughter says I sound better when I sing there. We went about our day. A text came. We had miscounted and over paid rent! The landlords had our refund waiting. Another message came. A friend had been given some deer meat and had more than they wanted. Deer meat waiting for us to pick up. Why do I worry. God always knows what I need even before I ask him. May my first response not always be 'practical' worry but rather grateful trust. Be joyful always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances.
