Day 293, October 24

Neil T. Anderson -- Perhaps God brings us to the end of our resources so that we can discover the vastness of His.
Our family has experienced being to the "end of our resources" many times over the years.  And always, always, God has blessed us by sharing His.
In the fledgling years of my husband's business, we lived on savings, rice and beans, and little else.  But we never went without.  With provident living and through the generosity of family and friends, we made do.  When it seemed the business couldn't possibly succeed, God came through, providing a new contract, a new opportunity.
It is not only in temporal matters that God is there for us.  When my depression threatened to overwhelm me, God was there.  Sometimes in the guise of a friend, sometimes through my husband's support, sometimes through a lifting of the cloud.  God was there during the hard days following my sister's husband's death.  He was there for our son when his wife abandoned him and their sons.  He was there ... He is there.
This I know for sure:  God's resources are so vast as to awe us, just as is His love.

  1. Yes, God is good. Not to say that we won't have our fair share of problems but with His help and love, we can come out on top.
