Today is a day of miracles! How do I know this? Because today is the day I pay my bills....except for rent because it is always paid on the first....but the other stuff. You know, water, power, phone, tv/Internet, medical....all those necessities. And I know miracles will be wrought because it happens every month.
I know my paycheck is barely enough to cover these and still pay for groceries and gas in the car. But every month somehow...God makes it stretch. Why? Because He has promised to meet my needs as long as I follow Him and trust Him to do so. There have been months when I spent many sleepless nights wondering how I was going to do it....how I would have the money to survive these basic monthly payments.....and I do mean basics because on my salary, there is no room for extras or splurges.
But I have gradually learned to let it go. I've learned to take God at His word and trust Him to keep His Promises. And He does....every single time. And as far as extras and splurges go....I've found that God has a way of surprising me with those too! Sometimes its "Buy One Get One Free" sales at the grocery store and sometimes its an invitation from a friend to go out for coffee-their treat, or a discount on a haircut from my hairdresser because I've referred so many new clients to her shop....always unexpected and always appreciated are these blessings from God.
So I will go ahead and say, "Thank You Lord for all that You do for me. Thank you for taking care of my needs and for loving me enough to do so. Help me to remember to share Your love with all those around me."
