One of my favorite hymns is "Great is Thy Faithfulness." It's "an oldie, but a goodie." It's been coming to my mind this week a ton and I thought I'd share it with you...
God has provided and proven His faithfulness in ways big and small this week:
- He provided a pony for our backyard VBS next week, after several cancellations and potentially disappointed kids, we found not one, but TWO and for a 1/3 of the price of our original ponies!
- He answered an unspoken request - I hadn't shared it with anyone and a volunteer stepped forward out of the blue because she felt like the kids would appreciate what she had to offer.
- During my MRI today (the first in a series of many doctors' appointments in the coming week), I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and comfort. No matter what the outcome, I know that He is with me and He is, and always will be, the Greatest Physician in my corner.
- A couple of months ago, I felt led to order a necklace from a friend's Stella & Dot show. I love S&D, and I've actually wanted this particular necklace for a while, but when it arrived, I couldn't bring myself to put it on. It was beautiful and everything I wanted - a delicate little cross on a thin silver chain. Small, but elegant. Dainty, but pretty. Everything I usually wear. And yet, I don't know why, but I just left it boxed up and sitting on my shelf. Fast forward to Bible Study this morning, a friend of mine talked about the mission trip she's going on soon to a closed area. The folks going need small crosses on chains to wear to identify themselves silently to other Christians. Ummm, hello! I knew immediately that she was meant to wear the necklace on her trip and ran to get it right away. I had goosebumps. Seriously, friends! What are the odds ... that I would order a necklace, sitting in the Netherlands, from a friend in Kansas (USA) to ultimately give to a friend heading out onto the missions field in yet a third country??? Hand of God.
Great is His Faithfulness!
