On most Sundays at the end of the sermon, our pastor will often invite anyone who needs prayer to come forward and meet with a member of the prayer team. One particular Sunday several months back I found myself talking to the sweetest woman who listened as I blabbered on about how tight money was that week (when isn’t it?). She prayed for me asking God to open the coffers of blessing. Well, He did just that last week, all on one day. So this week I’m praising God for:
1). $1000+ of my medical bills written off by the hospital (Friday).
2). Giving us a much-needed new refrigerator courtesy of one of my clients (Friday).
3). For giving my daughter a new bed (as the one she currently has is being held together by blocks of wood) courtesy of the same client (Friday).
4). For warm layers on a cold night of baseball.
5). For being reminded of my warm layers on a cold night of baseball (thanks, Robin).
6). That my daughter has one, possibly two jobs for the summer. There really are jobs to be had out there!
7). For the sheer enjoyment of watching my son pitch well this weekend. Makes my heart sing!
“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,'” says the Lord Almighty, “’and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
