When I was barely twenty-one, my father went to be with the Lord. It was the hardest time for my family, in every aspect. I had never been so close to death before. I was too young when my grandparents died, so I couldn’t remember the pain.
Eventually, the financial burden became very difficult. My brothers and I were all unemployed at the time and we did not have any great savings to depend upon. To tell you the truth, I really don’t know how we made out. In fact, I can’t really say.
All I know is that for almost two years, we remained unemployed except for small jobs or very temporary jobs we would get from time to time.
Yet, I cannot say that we had one moment where we could recall not having food on our table or the bills were piling up.
We were always in church and gave what we had. We continued to live by God’s word, especially my mother, one brother and myself.
God’s Blessings flow
Eventually, we all got jobs that enabled us to pay for the normal amenities God seemed to have been providing for us while we couldn’t do it on our own.
When I reflect, I believe that God Himself was ensuring that our food baskets were never dry and that our monies didn’t run out. God placed in the hearts of people to bless us so that we always had.
If I ever wondered or doubted if God was real, this would have to be the time in my life where I have to admit He sure is real.
And He sure stands by His word. And He really makes a way where there is none at all. Our God is so awesome.

Casting your care upon God
The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Do you have some burden or desperate situation that you need God to take care of? Do you need Him to intervene or is there some situation where you feel that you won’t make it through?
I believe that God can take care of any situation that concerns you. He did it for many of His children in the Bible and He is still taking care of us today.
I encourage you to trust in God and serve Him with all your heart. Have faith that He will take care of all that concerns you today.
Cast your care upon Him. He can take care of it. I’m sure that He is not surprised about it. I am sure that He can make a way out for you.
May your life be filled with God’s kind and tender mercies as you continue to trust in Him with all your heart, Amen.
