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!  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!

Is God Ringing the Doorbell?

Three times my doorbell has rung at unusual times with no one there.  That does not sound unusual except that people around here don’t tend to come calling at these hours.

The first time, was on Monday or Tuesday I think, around 9 pm. I was online listing items for sale when the doorbell rang once. It took me about two minutes to get to the door but no one was there and no one was outside at all. I thought it was a neighbor who didn’t wait for me so I didn’t think much of it.

Second time, I was upstairs spending too much time on unimportant things. When the doorbell rang I looked out the window but saw no one. I thought, maybe it was a solicitor who left me a brochure. Once I got downstairs and opened the door, no one and nothing was there. Then I thought, maybe neighborhood kids were playing a prank but I learned later that they weren’t actually home.

Third time, was this Monday morning around 1 am. I fell asleep on the sofa with the TV on when 4 rings in quick succession woke me like an alarm. I felt scared and I didn’t move! A show was on TV where they were discussing neuro research about how addictions cause problems with reason and judgment. The researcher emphasized any type of addiction not only drugs but also porno, gambling, and caffeine addictions cause decreased blood flow to the brain. I don’t know why that got my attention. Perhaps, it’s a topic that I should write about.

My mind thought: Is someone watching me? Is someone trying to get in? Are evil spirits trying to get inside my home? Is the Lord telling me something?

I’m worried about loosing my home and I’m late on the mortgage payments. A woman down the street just lost her home. Another woman said many times that she wanted to sell her home but she would work on that later because she had all the time in the world. She died last month and never did anything she wanted to do.

Is God telling me, “WAKE UP!  You’re running out of time!”  Is the home He gave me in danger of foreclosure?

Revelation 3:20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.” Jesus can use the doorbell if He wants.

333 Hits Today

At the time of this posting Ask God Anything has 333 hits.

Q: What does that mean if anything?

I went to Net.Bible.org  and typed in 333 to search under Bible and these 2 scriptures came up.

Nehemiah 4:1 When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall he exploded in anger, vilifying the Jews.

Daniel 4:3 How great are his signs! And how full of power are his wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom and his rule goes on from generation to generation.

Sanballat, in Nehemiah, was an enemy of God and the Jews.

Daniel 4:3 uses the words of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon after God brought Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego out of the fiery furnace alive and unburned.

Sanballat was about to see the Jews rebuild the temple and was against God from beginning to end.

King Nebuchadnezzar witnessed a major miracle when the three Jewish men refused to bow down and worship him as god. He was an enemy in the beginning then a believer at the end of the story.

Sanballat hated the Jews and God while Nebuchadnezzar declared that the god of the Jews was God.

What does this mean?

Total of 333 hits by today’s date, 7/2/12? A Bible search with 333 results in 2 scriptures? About two different people? Both scriptures are Old Testament.  Daniel 4:3 How great are his signs Both scriptures have two four’s and only one three? Does adding 4+1=5; 4+3=8; 4+1+4+3=12; and the date 7+2+2012=2021; or 7+2+12=21 mean anything? Is God saying something in any of this? Is there a message?

As of now, all I can think of are the 3 bills that I don’t yet have the money to pay for the month of June; mortgage, credit card and vehicle registration.  It bothers me that I’m late on paying them but I’m asking for God’s help.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the Furnace

Daily Bread Update #2

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

This week has been amazing!  Each day, I’m asking the Lord to give me my daily bread and he has done so literally.  A friend brought me some bread this week.  I was expecting one loaf, instead it was an overdose of artesian breads from a bakery!

Currently, I’m having serious financial problems including growing credit card debt.  However, I’m trusting Jesus to help me each day.  God answered my prayer.
