Thankful Thursday

I am thankful God provides all my needs. First I don't even know what some of my needs are but God knows them all. God knows the difference between what I think are needs and are really wants.

I'm thankful He has control. He provides my husband, a high school graduate with a paying job that can meet our financial situation. People often say to us how can you live on that income? We can because God provides. They ask how do you afford 2 kids in college. We don't God does. Our daughter has her schooling covered in grants for the second year. Our son last year left for college (with all his stuff) on a Monday and said I'll either see you this week end or in a month. He left and still needed $5,000 by Friday to start college. God provided.

I am continually amazed how God provides. In the past I would think, Well God will want me to do this or that to get money. No God has a plan I didn't even think about or was possible.

God doesn't just provide my material things he provide time in my day, emotional and spiritual needs. I am so thankful God has the controls.

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