God moved some mountains for us recently.
- He fixed a sidewalk through the Men’s Ministry of the church I attend. My mother’s balance is not as good as it used to be, and any time she walked on our old sidewalk I held my breath. I knew it needed replacing, but I didn’t have the resources to do it. God did. The men used what they could from our old sidewalk, and placed new slabs where needed. They took out the two steps and sloped the sidewalk at a slight grade. It is more like a ramp now and much safer to walk on. The men also fixed a spot in our driveway. All this was done at no cost to us–the Men’s Ministry took up collections at their meetings. Any time I look out the door, I see God’s work through the Body of Christ. God said, “Here is a blessing for you and your mother.” Every day it is appreciated. It is such a relief to have it done!
- I have a job now, and I believe God opened the door. I walked into the local supermarket as a customer, and walked out with an informal job offer! I didn’t see a product I like on the shelf and wondered when it would be in. I saw two managers talking and asked them about it. In the course of the conversation, I mentioned that I used to work in retail. One of the managers said, “Well, if you ever want to get back into retail…” I replied that my legs hurt; I need to sit a lot. The manager said, “If you get a letter from your doctor stating that you need to sit, you can work as a cashier and we’ll provide you with a stool.” That is the way it worked out. This, after I looked for work and ran into roadblocks. Then, I walk in as a customer and walk out with a job practically handed to me!
Some Scriptures: “Now to Him Who is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!…” (Ephesians 3:20, 21, ESV)
“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19, NIV)
