God Will Provide

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

This week, I had to say good-by to a dear Aunt who passed away.  It is so hard to say good-by to someone you love.  She was such a special lady, who I will always remember fondly.  She was one of my Mom’s six sisters.  Over the past few years, my Mom has lost all but one of her dear sisters and a cousin who was like a sister.  This has been really hard on her as they all shared a very special bond.  They got along so well and truly enjoyed spending time together. One of their favorite things to do was to meet for lunch and they took the time to make this happen on a regular basis.  My two daughters and I were privileged to be included in these special “Sister Lunches” and  those special memories comfort all of us during this sad week of good-byes.

As I was thinking about my Mom this week and how hard it has been for her to cope with so much loss, I thought about how God has been there for us.  I think God knew how hard it would be for her to lose her sisters and each time one of them left this earth for their heavenly home, I was with my Mom when she heard about their passing.  I am so glad she was not alone when she heard the sad news and I’m thankful I could be there in person to comfort her.  I truly believe God helped my Mom through these difficult times, by making sure she was not alone in her grief.

Earlier this week, Jules posted about the birth of her twin grand babies.  My Mom, Little One and I were able to fly to visit them last weekend.  What a blessing those two little ones are!  Traveling with my Mom and Little One was a little challenging.  We had luggage and a car seat to juggle and my Mom needed assistance.  Once again, God provided just what we needed in the form of what I call “earthly angels”.  At the airport we received exactly the help we needed, at just the right time, from some very kind people! I realized that you never know when you might be the person that is an answer to someone’s prayer!

These are just two recent examples of how God provided for my needs.  How about you?  Do you have any stories to share about how God provided just what you needed at just the right time?  We would love to hear your stories!
