I promise I do not usually post twice in a day. I just thought this was really special to share with you all.
As I’ve shared this week and last week, my laptop has had some issues. It’s come to the point, I’ll have to extract my files from my hard drive or at least attempt. In doing this, there is a fear, of course, I may not be able to receive the files or photos.
One of the biggest concerns I had was not getting the updated material on the book I’ve been working on. I have all of the chapters on Google docs, but they do not have all of the recent revisions I’ve done. Still grateful, it’s a lot better than starting from scratch or even being a few chapters behind. Really, it could have been worse.
I’ve been praying daily for provision and working on thanking God more for what He has given me throughout the day. It really has opened my eyes so much, and to all of the things I take for granted.
Well… He didn’t just provide all the chapters I’ve written to my book.
Unbeknownst to me, He provided my most recent update, too.
I had forgotten that a few weeks back, I felt it in my heart that I needed to print out a hard copy of what I had so far. Of course, some of my friends asked me if there was any reason, and I just responded, “I’d like to have it, and look at it physically.” Little did I know, this would come in handy.
God provides in some amazing ways. It isn’t always a big deal, but some of the simplest things He does can mean so much. When my laptop wasn’t working, I prayed throughout and thanked God for helping me be less attached. I’ve had issues with laptops before, and let me tell you, in the past, I’ve shamefully taken it HARD. I went through a mini depression in 2017 when my phone broke down and I lost access to my games and the internet.
Yeah, not my finest moment as a follower of Jesus who gave me everything and His life.
But this time around, I can work with it. God provides, and I knew He would. My ideal would be for my laptop to work, but, you know, this works, too. Every experience and each new day is always a new opportunity to grow in Him.
It was just truly kind of Him to prepare me even for this and lessen some stress.
(NLT) Acts 14:17, “but He never left them without evidence of Himself and His goodness. For instance, He sends you rain and good crops and gives you food and joyful hearts.”
Has God recently provided for you? It doesn’t have to be a big thing.
