The God Who Provides

February 1, 2010

Josh got a job. Three months to the day after being laid off. We’d been praying specifically God would provide a job by the end of January. And He did. Josh switched industries and will also be going back to school on a government-funded grant to get certified in his new field. We’re so excited.

It’s been an amazing three months. One where I’ve learned peace and trust like never before.

The blessings that have come from this “bad” situation has been overwhelming. Simply that. Tangible and otherwise. We’ve truly experienced God’s provision from various means. Every time we needed something it was there. We never paid for a thing with a credit card or went into debt.

I hope others going through similar experiences will be encouraged. Here’s just a few highlights of the provision we received over the past three months:

  • Free hi hat lights (that we’d been wanting to buy and install since May) given to us for free from an electrician
  • “New” TV given to us when ours was on the brink…the person who gave it to us didn’t know ours was about to die
  • Christmas gifts provided for through the giving of others
  • A total of four side jobs for Josh to bring in extra money
  • A photography boom for my business
  • I sold an article
  • Financial gifts from friends and family, some anonymous
  • A Federal grant for Josh to go back to school for a Government Contracting certificate, that he could have only applied for if unemployed

These are just some of the tangible ways we were provided for and blessed over the past few months. A mixture of hard work and miracles. I can honestly say I wouldn’t have traded this time for anything.

    Yay, more wonderful news! When you look back, it’s always amazing to see how he provides, even with the little things.

    Congratulations on your hubby’s new job… and thanks for sharing your testimony of God’s faithfulness through the season of unemployment. 🙂

    And the miracle of a baby, too! (Not quite tangible yet.)

    I am so thrilled to read of God’s kindness and provision to you all.
