Jehovah Jireh

Jehovah Jireh....Our Provider

He provides each breath we take.

He provided a ram in the thorns for Abraham and
He provided The Lamb wrapped in thorns for humanity.

He provides the Spirit to infuse us with strength to follow.

He provides resurrection power.

He provides all we need for life and godliness.



Romans 8:32


He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for
us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all
things?




He provides everything.

Today, I am thankful that He also provides community. I am spurred on, encouraged and admonished by this fellowship of believers.

I find community not only in my local body of believers and through the Internet, but also in the authentic writing of true believers. I am reading Scribbling in the Sand by Michael Card and it has been the apprenticeship I have longed for, the mentoring I have needed. I'm thankful that God provided this book right when I needed it.

I'm thankful especially for a friend who took the time this week to speak words of hope and encouragement to me.


Iris, thanks so much for taking the time to choose a theme each week as we count our blessings.

that's so wonderful that you've found a book which has helped you a lot, and that you have found a very encouraging community. Such great blessings! :)

You've listed so many wonderful things. I like what you said about being mentored through a book. I don't have a physical person mentoring me right now. But, I have my favorite mature Christians that I enjoy listening to on the Christian radio station. I appreciate that they share what they have learned with us, so that we can grow, too.

Isn't it amazing how GOD provides exactly what we need, at the perfect time...
That is how the Second Mile was for me..by Mike Haman....
It was written for me to read "at a time such as this."

Happy Thursday!

I am so thankful for you too. My precious friend. I sure wish we lived closer, I'd love to share a coffee or tea with you. There is no greater joy to me than to give encouragement and hope to others. So glad I sprinkled a few hope seeds your way. You are not alone. Email me anytime. I am here for you.

Heather said...

This week I have been reflecting on the fact that God always provides our needs, but not always our wants. I am so thankful that He knows whether my wants are good for me or not!

Thanks so much for sharing, Heather!

It is amazing how God's timing sometimes works. I always boggles my mind how He is just there, even when we don't notice it and He provides all we need :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week. Can't wait until next week *big huge smile* to share my grateful heart :)

Blessings to you and your wonderful family.
