MBM: Always Enough
The story I am sharing just happened, but let me backtrack a bit. A few months ago Joel and I made a prayerful commitment to buy anything we would need with cash...even big items. We have been working to become debt free, which is challenging with Joel on disability and both of us getting Lyme treatments that are not covered by insurance, BUT we believe God will provide more than enough as we follow through on our commitment to become debt free.
A couple of years ago we felt led by God to give a sum of money to someone we know well. They did not want to accept it, but decided if God had told us to give it to them, they would. Just a couple of weeks ago they returned that money to us "with interest"! That was unexpected~ we have given them a gift, not a loan, but we thanked them, and tucked it away thinking we would use it for our Lyme treatments. Then.......
Our trusty washing machine let us know it had little life left in it! Joel has fixed it several times over the years, but the repairs now would cost more than the washer. We had purchased the set USED at an auction 22 years ago. It had been faithful to us as we washed clothes for 10 people down to eventually just Joel and me!
Just a few weeks ago we would not have had the money for a washer.
God had it all worked out. In His perfect timing He provided for us just when we needed it. Just in time! So we are getting a new washer and due to the "interest" part of the gift, we may be able to get a dryer too! Isn't is wonderful how God provides! Always enought!
