God Provides

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

One of my favorite songs on my playlist is Great is Thy Faithfulness. It reminds me over and over that I can trust God to take care of us. Once again he has shown himself faithful in even the small things. In November, our old pickup truck just up and wouldn’t start. My husband tried to fix a few things like changing the battery but the weather was super cold and nothing seemed to work. We had no money to fix the truck with the extra expenses of Christmas and the new baby so the truck just sat in our yard. We really needed to be able to use that truck though. We don’t have trash pickup so we take the trash to the dump in the truck. We use it to haul water for the cows (our other option is to hand carry buckets of water from the house). The truck is our only 4-wheel drive vehicle as well.

We decided to bite the bullet and take the truck in to the repair shop to at least find out what was wrong. A friend helped us tow it in so we wouldn’t have to pay for a tow truck. They found a broken piece in the keylock cylinder. Total cost to fix it was $97.

In the meantime someone at church anonymously left us a card with a $100 bill in it!

The Lord really does care about us even in the small things. I am so thankful for his care and this very physical reminder as we face a year that we aren’t sure how we are going to make it especially with the extra hospital bills to pay for. I know that he is faithful and will provide a way for us.

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.
