Daily Bread Update 6

Luke 11:3,Give us each day our daily bread.”

I continue to ask God for my daily bread and He continues to give me what I need each day!  Because money is not yet coming in I took out money from retirement funds.  Before I paid any bills, I made a sacrifice by giving God his first 10% (tithe).  That first ten percent belongs to Him not me.  By early afternoon, I received many good things; some items I can sell to make money, a lasagna and more cookies!

Thank you Jesus for doing what you say you’ll do!

Daily Bread Update #4

Luke 11:3,Give us each day our daily bread.”

Financially, things are getting tougher since I’ve made little money in business.  However, God is feeding me.  I bought a few food items and paid cash this week.  I could have bought lots more and charged all of it but I didn’t want to nor did I feel good about such an idea.  Besides, I’m late on my credit card payment.

Every day and night, I ask God to give me my daily bread and He continues to do so.  A good neighbor who likes to cook gave me several meals this week along with cookies.  I’m thankful for those little things that make life sweet.  Little sweets give me a touch of enjoyment in a basic staples world.  The Lord gives me more than bread.

A credit card, the biggest beneficiary of the ...

I’ve been asking God each day to give me my daily bread.  Guess what!  He’s answered my prayers each day.  Seriously, I’m at a very bad place financially now and I have only me to blame.  I screwed up so much to get in this bad place now I’m trusting God to help me get out and leaving all the details to him.

Each day, God has given me what I need and it has not included a credit card. It does include some money, friends giving me food without my asking them.  Not only that but I’m not starving.  I used to think this scripture meant that God would give us just barely enough to live but now I know that is wrong.  He is giving me plenty of what I need and it hasn’t been junk either.

Right now, I don’t really know how I’m going to pay my bills.  I’m working on selling stuff that I have and writing but mostly I’m asking God to help me.  To top it off, I feel calm about my situation.  Once in a while I’ll feel a moment of anxiety and then it’s gone.  I’ll keep you informed of the outcome whether good or bad.
