My beliefs get stronger each time I make a point of showing others generosity. It happens when I have something I can choose to help myself with, but instead use to help someone else. Because, I can only make that decision by being completely dependent on God.

When I’m running short on time and got some important things to check off my to-do list, but put on the brakes after realizing that someone’s in need – it requires showing absolute faith. It requires believing God will allow everything that needs to get done to happen. And it requires the understanding that He’ll make it all work out somehow.
In the brief moments of questioning – how I can provide for someone else, and still do what I must for my own family – I must make a choice to go to God in prayer. I have to pray, not panic and bail. I have to be expectant that He’ll provide for my family. Because, after all, He always has before.
Though we’ve had many struggles and felt like we were coming close to the bottom of our rope, we always manage to stay afloat. It might be by just a hair, but our basic needs get met. I don’t know why we have to go through some of the things that we do, but I do know that He knows why..and I choose to let that be enough.
