Provision

God is good like that. What’s that you ask? Well, basically everything. But most specifically, for me at least, he’s been good in my finances.

Let’s be even more specific. I am a college student. I make just enough money each month to pay for food and rent. That’s about it. Recently, I’ve had a few more financial obligations fall under my belt, such as paying for my own gas now and paying the security deposit on my house next year. This past month, I didn’t work too much and didn’t make that much because of it. I didn’t make rent this month either. YAY!

So here I am, asking God, what the crap. Not in a negative sense, but more like, what in the world am I going to do, God? I don’t have the money. I’m in enough debt as it is with my student loan, I don’t want to go in more debt, what ‘s going to happen? So I ask, God, provide the way. What’s great is that God gave me a really solid peace throughout the whole thing. I’ve been super chill about it and not worrying about it, which has been GREAT. Not having to be anxious about something is so nice. Anyway, on wednesday I’m driving to work and trying to think of how I’m going to come up with the money. I call my Mom asking her if she had talked to my grandparents about them giving me the money, because I had asked her to ask them previously. Well, they said no. Nothing against them, because they had helped me BIG time for my mission trip, so no hard feelings there. My mom and I get talking and she mentions talking to the church I work at if they have a benevolence fund. Well, turns out they do! And better, after talking to the church, they said they would help me out!! It’s so awesome how God provided! A big thing that I learned was not being so prideful and asking those around you for help.

Here’s another cool thing. So remember how I was being scammed a while back? Well, those charges have been sitting on my account for a little while now. I disputed them through Citi and got a letter in the mail saying that if I acknowledge them as fraudulent, then Citi will close my account and give me a new one, removing the fraudulent charges. You know what’s cool? I owe $168. And what do you know, the fraudulent charges add up to $169. How awesome is that!! And I still have $50 in my checkings account! WOO

1 John 5:14-15

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

I know that God doesn’t desire for me to be in debt. And so I asked him. And what did he do? He got me out of debt =].

God’s taken care of me up until now, and I don’t see him stopping any time soon. Actually, never. So if you ever doubt that God isn’t or won’t take care of you, consider my testimony. Be encouraged. It may take a little while, but God is there and will never and HAS never left you. Love you guys. Be Blessed =]
