My dear friend calls it Manna Plan and oh, what a wonderful description it is. Living on faith, trusting God to provide everything– work, money, food, shelter; everything. He provides when we stay in His will (sometimes it is like being herded or for D&D players: railroaded.) We trust Him and want His best for us, and sometimes His best plan leads through some pretty uncomfortable territory.
Some days manna living is hard.
Some days you have to decide between buying butter or toilet paper (in general toilet paper wins but what if you are only almost out of both?)
Some days you have to decide whether it is worth the gas (which you have to buy because you are running on empty) to make a run to the bank to put $10 in the account lest that small bill that you are pretty sure will go through the next day does and might possibly cause a bounce if anything else goes through that you have forgotten.
Some days you wish you were a normal person with a normal job so your family didn’t have to struggle with these days.
Some days you forget how much God has taken care of you in the past and want to take the easy way out.
Some days are exhausting and scary and heart heavy and hard.
Yet God still provides rainbows after rain.
Manna still comes in the morning. It may not be much and you may be sick and tired or it, but there it is: Abundance. Just enough is all we need. And we only need enough for today.
God is still in the heavens and He still owns the cattle on a thousand hills.
The bills will get paid in His time.
We will still have food on our table.
We will still be able to do what He has ordained for us to do.
We can trust Him because He is trustworthy; more trustworthy than government, or insurance, or man.
And all is right with the world for God is good.
