God has always taken care of shanna and i in big ways. we certainly complain a lot just like everyone else, but when we pause long enough it really doesn’t take much time to see His provision. sometimes it is unexpected and anonymous, and we are floored with how God answered a prayer and met a need. other times it comes in the form of something more “expected”, but just the same – it came from Him.
we recently have been seeing both forms of God’s provision for our needs, and God has been challenging me to try to be just as grateful and thankful for the “expected” as the “unexpected”.
i found this verse the other day and like so many times, new significance emerged from these ancient words:
“Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15, NLT)
