I was awakened, again.
It had been happening all night, but this time it wasn’t distant, it was loud and nearby.
It was a tree, falling and the branches hitting our bedroom window.
Last night was the second night in a row of freezing rain.
And the poor trees couldn’t handle the weight.
Power was lost during the night.
My husband didn’t sleep hardly at all due to the sounds of trees falling all around us.
This morning he and our son left to help move trees and branches from the roads.
Ordinarily, my husband wouldn’t have been able to cut down much as we no longer have a chainsaw.
Our son-in-law had left his in our garage just a few days ago.
So, my husband even has the tools needed to help.
I’m so thankful to the Lord for His provision.
Just yesterday I was saying to someone, “Only God knows what will happen tomorrow and I trust Him to provide for whatever that is.”
And He has.
Although, in floor heating won’t work, we have a propane topped stove, so I can still cook.
We have a propane fireplace, so it’s not too chilly.
The truck has gas in it, so my husband can drive.
We have a generator and plenty of gasoline.
Even the tree falling didn’t break the window.
Truly, we are so very well provided for.
And I know from experience that if something worse had occurred, God would have provided for that as well.
Because He is our provision.
Psalm 55:22 KJV — Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
He provided a way for our souls to be saved and has not neglected our daily needs.
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
Lamentations 3:22-24 KJV
Psalm 79:9 NKJV — Help us, O God of our salvation, For the glory of Your name; And deliver us, and provide atonement for our sins, For Your name’s sake!
The Lord is great and greatly to be praised, for His faithfulness and salvation is everlasting.
Psalm 145:3 NKJV — Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for providing so much for us each and every day. Thank You for walking with us and providing for all our needs. Lord, thank You for keeping us safe from the storm. Lord, may we never allow the things of this life shake our steadfast trust in You and Your salvation. Lord Jesus, You are amazing and we praise Your holy name. Thank You. Amen.
