Yesterday was Monday. That usually makes a statement.
But, yesterday was unlike a traditional Monday. In fact, yesterday was pretty darn manageable.
I was “surprised by grace” all day. My patient bill from my ER visit is being resolved (insurance wasn’t sent through, I got a bill this weekend, they’ll send me a new one). A credit was applied to my Perspectives text order. My auto insurer quoted me a lower premium (although other companies were lower). I got to listen to a good friend of mine share his heart about 20 years of church planting among the Maasai at Perspectives.
Even though I’ve checked my work e-mail this morning and saw a few people not being able to register because of system errors, I’m not worried about it. I know it’ll resolve and things will work for them.
I guess I’m writing this to let you know that God truly does provide what we need to be sustained. I think in the last few days I’ve been too concerned with making things work and striving to move forward instead of letting God move. I know that because I returned a call from another old friend thinking, “Okay, I’ve got to take care of this and this for him,” when he was actually calling to see how I was doing and ask for directions downtown (not at all what I was thinking)!
Proverbs 1:7 – The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
