God, You're amazing

A friend of mine has been living on faith for awhile now. She's a single mom of sorts, home schooling a couple of kids.

For years now she's been driving an old beater car, not having enough to live on let alone buy a new car. But she put her hope in God. The One who commands the impossible. The One who can stretch a dollar into a hundred.

Last October, God told my friend to ask for a car. Then to say, "God's giving me a car." Now, hold on, this is not name it, claim it. This is obedience. She didn't decide on her own to say, "God's giving me a car." She merely proclaimed what He told her.

This past week someone gave her a beautiful 2002 Camery. Very nice. It's an amazing blessing. She did't manipulate it. Bemoan it. I didn't even know she was believing God for a car. She never said a word. (Well, talk about that later.)

But, God is the God of the impossible. Be faithful in the little. Drive that old beater. Work for no raise, but do it with your whole heart unto the Lord. He will provide! He will repay what you do in secret with a loud sound.

I know you won't say, but I hope this car went to who I think it did. She's absolutely precious. Either way God is amazing!

Awesome testimony! I absolutely agree. He is faithful and just....I will be sharing my own testimony, regarding our Faith Promise, recently made at church. Be sure to check next week for that! :) God bless you!

I love experiencing God like that - intimately or through another! In a simple way, and certainly not inclusive of all the ways, that God helps me continuously these days is in the Search and Rescue of lost items in the house! My mind is so full these days, and I'm so thankful I have a God who knows my mind and loves me right there . . . where I am. So my frequent prayer is, "Oh, God. You know where "this" is. Please help me to find it!" And, of course, He always does :) So very, very cool!

This is so awesome Rachel, it really blesses and encourages me - The Lord is so good to us. As I'm writing this I just sense the gentleness and swetness of the Father.
