The God Who Provides
“We could see God working in everything, just every part…
God is right there for you, but you have to let him know that you want Him in your life. You have to let Him know that you need Him, I mean, He knows all of this, but He wants you.”
Where is God providing in your life? Where are you seeing His hand move and work in your day to day? Maybe you’re reading this, and you think that God’s left you. That He hasn’t given you what you need to make it through the difficulty you’re going through. But I encourage you to listen to Sheila’s story.
Moment by moment she saw the provision of God in the midst of the hardest season. From the very beginning of her son, Jim’s, life, to his diagnosis with ALD, to the specific hospital that would treat him, to the doctors and nurses who cared for him, to the amazing support of people who surrounded her family in their time of need. There was not a moment where He was absent. He was present and providing.
Mike and I were married in November 1986. Christmas Day 1987 we received the best present ever. Our older son Steven was born. Jim followed 20 months later.
We still live in the house we purchased when we were married. It is a close knit street. As the boys grew up all the kids on the street played together and the older ones looked after the younger ones. The boys enjoyed sports and did well in school. Jimmy loved to play the piano.
Our perfect life changed when Jim was diagnosed with ALD.
