Today, my husband was able to work four hours at a free lance job and will work another six hours tomorrow. He was asked if he would be available for another gig as well... indeed he will. Since he is on unemployment right now, he will only be able to keep 45% of what he earns but... we are thankful.
He came home at noon and as he had spent the morning moving heavy gear he was hungry. He'd called earlier to warn me about that.
He stepped out of the cold and into a warm kitchen just as I finishing preparing lunch. He sniffed appreciatively as I sliced the bread which I had baked yesterday. We sat down to eat and my husband was silent for a moment. Then in a heart-felt voice he offered up a prayer of thanksgiving which included... "We thank you Lord, for your provision."
It has been just 3 1/2 weeks since my husband lost his job. During these few weeks, we have lacked nothing. Every need has been met. In fact... we even have a bit more than we did then and all I can say is: "Thank you Lord, for your provision".
Whether bread on a plate or salvation on a cross, no provision is too big or too small for our Lord to provide.
So pleased for you both, k. God is sooooooo Good .praise His Name.
Yes, I continue to pray that He will supply all your needs beyond your understanding. Surely He is able and will do more than you can think or imagine for He is God and nothing is too difficult for Him.
Thanks for sharing, Sister K

Our God is faithful and provides all we need!
That is so exciting...I know it must mean a lot for him to have the work. PTL!!!
Praise God for His faithfulness!TT
This blog caught my eye today and as I read:

I chuckled and knew I needed to post an update.
After I wrote that, he learned that they did indeed have another four hour gig which they wanted him to work on this Saturday afternoon. However... a short time later they called to tell him that later that after that event was done, there would be a wedding reception held at that same facility. Would he mind staying and working that event as well since he was uh... already on site? LOL!
Indeed, God does provide. Our household has always been somewhat dependent on free-lance work for nearly 28 years. It's just that now it is playing a far greater role in our lives.
Christians who either do not have a regular income they can depend on or have supplement it through free-lance work or tips in order to make ends meet, get a crash course in learning to trust God in providing our needs.
