In the theme of my "Money and Manna" posts, I've been pondering God's promises and power to provide lately- and it seems like I've been writing about it a lot, but I think that's because God is just showing me His goodness in this way a lot! Here are two little examples:
1) Michael and I have been praying about where to find more money to pay off student loans while paying his tuition and living expenses. We got the perfect raise at my job to make this possible. Also, out of nowhere, someone sent us $200 cash in the mail yesterday anonymously. This was the same day we took the little girl that we mentor the zoo and couldn't use the discount we planned- so the day cost us WAY more than we budgeted! Our zoo trip (and this week's groceries, and then some!) were paid for by the body of Christ.
2) A friend of mine has also been praying for financial direction and was in a serious budgeting pickle because of a roommate drop out. We prayed together on Monday and wrote out her projected budget, and saw how tight things would be. Later that same day someone left her a check for $4500 as a gift, out of the blue!
To quote my friend, "I can't make this stuff up!"
