You ever had something happen to you that just totally blow you away?
That was me on my birthday this year.
I was grocery shopping two days before my birthday because I wanted to make some extra money to take care of my trip to Niagara Falls. But a few days early I was feeling an unction in my spirit to just sit down and relax. I kept feeling like everything was going to be taking care of but yet I was still so anxious and wanted to make sure.
So that Monday I took a few orders delivered them and decided I had to go get my glasses (because I had left them at my previous job the week before). It was convenient for me to pick them up and have my meeting outside in the parking lot since I was already parked.
After I finished I went to start the car up and guess what happen y’all ? IT WOULDN’T START! I was like okay this happened last week so let me go purchase jumper cables and then it’ll be good. That’s exactly what I did and the car wouldn’t start. I called my mechanic and he picked up my car that night. The thing that I didn’t want to do which was sit down and be still God force me too.
My friend (Shanti- Peace) had told me about this sermon that was preached at her church in July. Which was based out of Psalm 23 (go read). She told me that sometimes when the sheep go astray the Shepherd would have to break the sheep’s feet and carry the sheep so that the sheep would get out of harms way. Of course the sheep’s feet would heal and it’ll be right back where it belonged with the other sheep.
That’s exactly what happen to me. God BROKE MY FEET! I wasn’t listening to the still small voice that told me just to relax. I was so worried that I wouldn’t have enough to pay for my trip. That God LITERALLY stop me from going out.
I stayed in the house for two days.
On my birthday I was ready, and refreshed. Shant was taking me out to brunch and I love some good food so I couldn’t wait. We were talking and out of nowhere the UNEXPECTANT happened.
My cashapp started to ding over and over and over and over again. I literally COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. I started to explain to Shant what was going on and started to cry. Like that ugly cry because God had once again came through and I truly wasn’t looking for it. I was trusting Him hoping that somehow it’ll all work out but I had my doubts. And y’all He gave me enough to get my car fixed, pay for my trip, and have spending money.
I was overwhelmed and grateful. It has caused my faith to go up another notch.
So if their is something that you don’t have and your waiting on God to provide just wait. In His timing He always provides. He did it for Abraham He will do it for you too!
Those UNEXPECTED blessing are worthwhile!
