God’s Awesome Provision

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

God continues to provide in so many ways for us—and confirming our call to go to Mexico!  Over the past 2 weeks we have been given free storage space for an unlimited amount of time, a great 5 x 10 enclosed trailer to haul furniture and “stuff” to Mexico and had many encouraging meetings with people about support.  God is faithful!  What a journey it has been watching HIM really lead us in this new adventure.

I realized, in the midst of all these amazing blessings, however that I am really fearful of being lonely these next couple of years.  And in such a gentle way, the Lord asked me, “Do you trust me to meet YOUR needs too?”  It is easy to see him providing in these tangible, physical ways, but I haven’t been trusting that HE really cares even more about ME!  Yes, He cares about the little details on my list of things to do, and Yes He cares about our financial needs, and Yes, He cares about our living situation—but do I really believe that He cares about my heart?  He does—He is not just going to get me to Mexico and then let me just “fend for myself”!  And yet in my fear, this is what I am believing!  Just as we ask boldly for our physical needs to be met, the Lord is teaching me to ask boldly for the things that really concern my heart—and then trust that He really has Me in mind in this whole process!!  After all, most important to Him is that I fall more in love with HIM through this time and learn to totally depend on HIM!!  What a journey ahead!!
