Yesterday was one of those days for me where if I even thought about my life I would cry.
God challenged me that morning when I read "Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this." Ps. 27:5
The literal meaning of that verse is "Roll your way onto Jehovah and trust upon Him, and He works."
I knew He was telling me to Roll my fear and pain and burdens onto Him.
I would mentally push them onto His very capable shoulders.
But then later I would take them back.
I'd think about how nothing seems to be really helping, as far as I can tell.
Then I'd think about how this next Wednesday I have and appointment in WI to look at the infamous tooth.
What if this is the answer?
Will getting it fixed or looked at help?
What if it does nothing?
Then where do we turn?
How are we going to pay for all this dental work?
That has been a question I've wondered since I've heard about my tooth. Dental work is expensive.
Then I'd roll it back onto His shoulders - for the hundredth time.
He is so patient.
And so faithful in encouraging me.
A friend of mine called yesterday and said my nurse practitioner/ midwife has been burdened for me and wondered if it would be OK to contact me.
I gave the OK and shortly afterwards got an email to which I replied right away that I would love to see her and gave a few small details of my life at the moment.
She immediately replied with something I could take for my nausea and is coming to see me on Saturday.
I am so encouraged. This woman is a wealth of knowledge about so very many things and I need a fresh perspective on both medical and natural. Something I know she can supply and will be honest with me.
God knew I needed it.
Then... yesterday my grandma asked me if I had gotten anything in the mail.
As I hadn't, she told me I would be getting a surprise tomorrow.
Thankfully our mail comes early, so as soon as I heard him on our porch I sent Karis out to get it.
My great aunt had sent a very sweet card, but what brought on the tears was the substantial check that fell out of it.
The gift was totally unexpected. She told my grandma that God had been laying me on her heart for the past few days and she felt she needed to do this.
I was overwhelmed. Through them, God had taken care of all my worries about how to pay for the dentist and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
Our church family has been so generous as well. Last Sunday my dad was helping direct parking at our church. On our way in, he handed me a visa gift card that someone who wanted to remain unknown had handed him. Once again we were blown away by whoever it was, and their generosity.
God is moving in His own mysterious ways.
They aren't mine.
I'm sure I'm going to be rolling burdens over to him always, but I am so grateful for how He is providing for our needs.
