A reminder from God...

So I thought I'd share with you a little reminder that God gave me today to trust Him.

The past month or so has been really tight with us on the money front.  As in I'm ashamed to admit we overdrew our account once (thank goodness for overdraft protection) and I had to pay one bill with the credit card (HATE doing that).  It's a mix of "recovering" from buying Christmas gifts and also I didn't work very much in December, and the end of November for that matter, due to holiday breaks. 

So I was feeling stressed today as I paid all the bills and realized that we were going to be about $18 short.  And I don't get paid until Monday (and Brew gets paid NEXT Friday).  So as much as I hated to I called Mom and asked for a $20 loan to get us through till Monday.  Well, she gave me a $40 check because (I had totally forgotten about this) I paid the electric bill for a month at our old house we weren't living in, and she owed me that reimbursement from my dad/aunt/uncle's joint account (they own the old house).  So that was a pleasant surprise.

And then when I got home today and got the mail- I found in it a refund check for our deposit we made with the last water company we had before we moved.  $118.  I just really felt like God was saying to me... "See???  Just trust Me!  I will provide for you!" 

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  ~ Philippians 4:19

That's an awesome story!

And as far as the other stuff....girl....been there and done that...A FEW TIMES!! But it gets less and less when you've been married a few years. At first we overdrew or would only have like $2 in the bank. Then we got up to where we could keep a $50 cushion in there and it's not so STRESSFUL all the time.
