When I was young I resented people who were given things. My thoughts were, “I never get anything. Why did he get that instead of me? It never occurred to me that I got many good things, after all, I wasn’t eating out of a garbage can. My attitude was despicable.
Then I learned that God wants to give us good things and we must ask for whatever we need and want. My attitude has completely changed in the opposite direction.
Today, I received an amazing surprise. Some people asked if I wanted things out of their house and of course I said yes. They gave me boxes of kitchen things, decor, lamps, furniture and a washer and dryer! I went numb. I’ve been needing a washer and dryer for months and haven’t had the money to buy cheap new ones. Not only did they just give me these things but helped me load them.
I don’t deserve anything that God gives me but I need it and I thank God for it all!
I continue to ask God for my daily bread and He continues to give me what I need each day! A few weeks ago, I got home late and my blood sugar was falling fast. I was shaky and light-headed and needed to eat immediately but didn’t have anything ready to eat on hand. A neighbor said she had a pizza that she didn’t like and I could have it so I did. God gave me food exactly when I needed it!
I’ve needed work and God gave me some temp jobs just when I needed them.
This past week, some people gave me a bunch of old things that they didn’t want to keep or have time to sell in a garage sale. It was home goods that I can use and tons of quality items that I can sell. None of it was junk.
What ever amount of money I make from selling these things and the temp jobs I’m giving God the first ten percent despite the money problems I’m currently having!
It’s been too long since my last daily bread update. Honestly, things have gotten tougher financially since I’ve only had 2 sales in 4 weeks! Those 2 sales would be great if it brought in a few thousand but they were very tiny potatoes.
I’m still asking God in prayer to give me my daily bread and He continues to do so. One person gave me a few meals but I don’t keep count. Mostly, I’m eating the last of the food in the pantry, which is dry goods. Perhaps God is saying it’s time to get rid of old things taking up space.
The Lord also gave me a wireless computer keyboard valued around $20. This is a nice necessity since my old keyboard with a wire got sticky keys.

Luke 11:3, “Give us each day our daily bread.”
At this time, I’m living day-to-day due to money problems. It’s not what I had in mind but there are far worse situations in which to be. Every day and night I ask the Lord to give me my daily bread and he keeps answering my prayer. Last week, people gave me several canned foods and two meals.
