God will provide


Saturday, March 02, 2013

Today I took the babies for their weekly visits to see their parents. One daughter is in jail, so couldn't see her son, so I had to keep him with me during the other 2 grand-kids visit. I felt bad for him but what could I do. I refuse to bail her out cause I cant afford it and also I think she needs to sit and learn a lesson and rethink her priorities and find her way back to God. I was surprised however, that the other daughter actually showed up to see her babies as she has only made it to 2 visits in 6months. It was nice to see actually see and know that to a point, she is ok, which I really needed to see. She is my daughter after all, no matter how much she is struggling and messing up, so I still worry. I had been wondering all morning what I was going to do today while I waited for kiddos to visit with their dad. I usually use that time to do some grocery shopping as that is a lot easier to do alone then with 3 young kids in tow. However I did not receive my check yet, so I was worried about how I would provide diapers etc for the babies with no money. My loving God heard my fears and prayers and my cell phone rang. My mom, who is such an awesome woman, called ma and said my parents and discussed my problems and decided it was best if they stepped in to help with the babies. At first, I fought the idea telling my mom it was a great idea but as I was a grown woman raising my grand kids, it was no longer her job to support me. Of course my mom scolded me like a little girl and told me to shut up listen to her, come pick her up and lets get the babies their stuff. I being the obedient daughter because I would never dream of not listening to my mother, not a great idea. went and got her during kiddos visit. She took me shopping and got all the basic necessities I needed and a few extras because her babies needed stuff that they liked also like lucky charms etc. lol. My mom is too cute and too good to me. During our trip, we talked a lot about God and how He works in His own way and His own time. She said He knew I needed help and since I'm stubborn at asking for help she was the best solution He could offer me. It also gave us some good quality mom and daughter time , which we don't get much of these days with the little ones around. That was great in itself and I needed it. I gave her loving hug and kiss and thanked her a lot and then we prayed for an awesome God who once again showed us that help comes when we need it most.

    A good friend once told me when she offered to help and I declined that my receiving her help would actually open up God's blessings to HER as well. Ever since that time, I have not refused someone's generosity as I would never want to keep them from receiving their reward/blessing from God!

I commend you for taking such good care of your grandbabies and providing them with a nurturing, God loving home. My prayers are with you and your family as you go through this trial. I believe you are doing the right thing in letting the one daughter stay in jail so she realizes the consequences of her actions, and hopefully learns from it.

Don't get discouraged, keep praying for your girls. I went to hell and back with NO ONE praying for me. But in the midst of it I got saved, a few years later I started praying in earnest for MYSELF (come from an atheist family) and within 1 year of praying for deliverance every day, I was set free. If you really want God in your life, He will step in, no matter what your condition. So pray for your children to truly desire HIM, and have a heart for HIM. I hope this helps.

  God heard your heart's cry for help and answered.
I teach Bible Study to women in jail. Many come from fine families and Just Mess Up. Don't ever quit praying and hoping.
It is such a joy to see some who give their lives to Jesus and commit to living for Him. Don't ever think PRAYER doesn't matter. God bless you my friend.

    I am glad that you recognize that all of this is because God provides for his people. I encourage you to accept any help your mom offers you and that you find a way to spend more quality time with your mom. I know god will continue to bless you in as you raise your grandchildren. I suggest that you try to find some time that you can just be alone each day to listen to what god has to tell you. Remember God send is help in all form so just accept anything anyone offers you no matter how big or small it may seem as you will be blessed as a thankful receiver as well as a giver.
Sometimes it is hard to accept help from family but do not deny them the blessings God want to give them by helping you.
Praise God for he is worthy of all glory. emoticon
