I paid our bills yesterday and one of them is a portion of our mortgage payment. I was looking at the balance was surprised. I usually check it once a month, but it slipped my mind in December. When I checked it today, I was floored. So many things flooded my memory of what we have gone through. Here are just a few;
I looked at one of the cars and immediately felt that I was supposed to buy it. I shot him a price and they took it. After writing the check, I drove the car home. Ugly as sin, the car drove like a dream. I got to the house and did our checkbook. I balanced the check that the person gave us with the check that I had just written for the car. The difference between the two left us with plenty left over. I had a thought; “I wonder how much is left over on the student loans?” Looking at the balance of the student loan, we knew exactly what to do. Pay off one of the student loans in full.
Though I did not work, our bills never fell behind. We depleted the emergency fund. More importantly, God made the money stretch by putting people in our path who helped us financially. It was a long wait, but it was all taken care of. The fact is our emergency fund was depleted the week I started working. Even to the wire, we saw God’s hand in it all.
Today, I checked the balance on our house. To you, it means nothing. To us, we celebrate because we see the hand of God on it. Without the help of God, this number would not have happened. We aren’t anyone special. We followed God’s principles.
I am still in awe of God after looking at this. Only He could do this and He gets the glory!
What has God done for your life that exceeded what you could ever imagine?
