the manna eventually stopped…

- - - - -

i have always had more than enough.

while preparing for and during my YWAM trip i was absolutely astounded by the overwhelming blessings God had poured over me. it seemed like everyday i walked through challenges either financially, emotionally, spiritually, mentally or physically…sometimes i thought it was more than i could handle, but it never was. God’s provision in every aspect was so evident.

now i’m home and everything looks a little different. i have resisted the change at times and am still a little afraid of the uncertainty of where i am at. sometimes i feel dreadfully overwhelmed at the complexity of having so many things unknown. that is where i am right now…even the amazing possibilities are causing me to feel like this is too much to handle. i need to remember that God’s generosity is just as much a part of today as it was in my last season.

in joshua 5:12 it mentions the day that the manna stopped appearing to sustain the israelites and they began to eat the produce in canaan. it really struck me that the provision never ceased but it looked drastically different…

am i too stuck on what used to be to recognize the provision for today? i sure hope not.

Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? 
Luke 12:24-26
