Recently I have been going through financial trouble.
I am behind on my rent, I have exactly $11.28 in my bank account, and I’ve been eating peanut butter sandwiches for a week. Long story short: Your girl is BROKE.
The church small group I started going to (which you can read about my experience here) has become my safe haven. The girls are funny, loving, and encouraging. We all open up to each other about real issues we’re having and how we struggle in our faith. We pray with one another, support each other, and worship together. It’s not something I’m used to, but I love it.
One of my friends told our leader about my financial struggles and my leaders roommate, who doesn’t even know me, graciously sent me $20 for groceries to get through the week.
I was literally wondering and asking God where my next meal was gonna come from and He wasn’t even worried because He had a plan!!
Won’t He do it!
I feel like God used this woman’s donation as a physical reminder to me that He is here. He loves me. He will not forsake me. I shall not want because His rod and His staff comforts me.
Isn’t it crazy how God can use $20 to restore hope?!
I’ve been reading this verse daily and I want to share it with you:
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I know that this is a common verse that many people have read and have glossed over, myself included. But, now that I have worried about where I’m going to sleep, eat, and wear, I’ve never related to a verse so much in my life.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve doubted God multiple times. I’ve worried and worried about these things for the last month. God has proven, yet again, that what He says in the Bible is truth and that when we seek first His kingdom, all of these things shall be given unto us.
God has blessed me, and I pray that you can seek His kingdom and remember His goodness.
