More Than We Purchased


Tonight we were supposed to go to a Journey to Bethlehem event. As we were driving we decided to call and make sure we weren't going to arrive too late. Turns out we were two weeks late! I was really sad about it, but my hubby said we'll try to find something similar to go to over the weekend. I still wasn't fully cheered up but I was getting there. 

We decided we should go and get some groceries. So off we went and I was glad that I'd still have people to give tracts to. Of course the tract queen (my 4 year old) decided that it was her job to hand them all out, so I let her. She gave one to a lady who was so excited about receiving one that she said (kind of loudly) "Oh yea, that's my man Jesus!" Which of course made our girls laugh. After that we all went about our business. 

Once it was time to check out we got in line, and it just so happens we were behind the lady who got excited  about the tract. She finished checking out and then walked around the other isle behind me. Then she grabbed a few of our items and said "I'll pay for these". Totally shocked we said thank you and continued checking out. She then preceded to tell us that the Lord was about to bless us. She very specifically said it was going to be a financial blessing that there wasn't going to be room enough to receive it {Malachi 3:10}. 

After we were all done checking out she came over to where we were standing and asked to pray with us. Right there in the store she prayed for our family and our finances, not knowing that my husband is still looking for work. Then she told me I need to be praying for my husband and children. Now I know this, but I haven't been very faithful in keeping them covered in prayer. She reminded me that I am my husbands helper and that I need to stay before the throne! She encouraged us to just stay faithful and that God would come through. 

We left the store complete shocked by all that had just happened. We had a rough start this morning and were a little worried about some things financially. But we decided to just leave it up the Lord, He knows how best to handle it anyway. Then this happened. I don't know if it means anything. I don't know if there is something big coming. But I do know I left feeling encouraged. 

I left home thinking I was going to experience Elohim {God}one way and He revealed Himself to me in another.  


The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. -Deuteronomy 29:29
