Provider

So, I have my oldest daughter, Shandi Hass, in college out in Chicago. Currently we are blessed to have her other Grandparents paying for her tuition. My mom and I are paying her rent, groceries, spending money and paying also for school supplies!!! VERY TIGHT BUDGET!! We just paid her rent, a bit late, but it’s paid. However, she’s a photographer and her current semester is almost over and she needed paper to print her photo project on to pass her semester. We barely made rent and her paper was going to be about $200.00. I kept believing that God would supply and bring this money to us, it was a must have!! She attended a photo fair shop and met a girl (representative for a photo company) and Shandi entered a contest and won some free paper, but not the size we needed. The women then said she is going to give her a free roll (the kind we needed) and it would be shipped to her by this Wednesday!!! Thank You God!! The women also sent her this text message: “something in my heart/head told me to send this your way, and I just do what I’m guided to do” How awesome is that!!! Again, thank you Lord

Holy Provider

There is an 82-year-old lady who lives in my apartment complex, and who I say hi to every now and then. I’ve asked her to come to church, but she says that she wouldn’t know what to wear. Well she called me to ask if her 45-year-old daughter could stay with me for 2 weeks. My reply was that there is no bed in the 2nd bedroom. My neighbor had no room in her apartment and said that her daughter could sleep on the floor. I told her that I would need to pray about this, since I did not know the daughter at all.

I called the daughter and asked to meet her—the friends she was staying with told her she must be out of their house. I told her that I’d call her on Thursday around noon to discuss meeting her, after I walked my dog. On the walk I prayed, “Holy Spirit what do you want me to do?” Holy Spirit said, "do not refuse!"

I met the daughter. She had come home from Arizona, and her friend in Arizona texted her not to return. She has no job, no car, and no money. She will be living with me for 3 months. Her Pennsylvania friends gave her a bed. She prays! She has now stopped smoking! Please pray she gets a job soon.

The irony of this testimony is in November I came down with panic anxiety and prayed for someone to be here with me. I no longer have the panic! Praise God. And, of course God’s got the timing down for more than one situation. Let’s give our Lord all the glory. Amen.

In closing, I lost my job. But God prepared me for this 3 years ago financially.
As of 1/14/13 I am eligible for unemployment. God’s hand is not too short and He sure can multiply. More Glory Messiah, King of Kings, Holy Provider!

Birds of the Air

Leave a comment

At Christmas, we received $400 from some friends of ours at church. When my husband and I prayed about what to do with the money, God told us one simple instruction: "Give." So we did. We gave it all as we felt led. Then, on Christmas Eve, we got another $100 as a gift. That in itself, is testimony enough of His goodness, but the story didn’t end there. For the next three weeks, we watched as paycheck after paycheck from my husband’s job was far less than expected. We didn’t even have enough money to pay our bills. We had only enough for groceries and gas, and I knew we were being tested. Did we truly believe that we were more valuable than the birds of the air? Then on Wednesday, my mom called me and asked if she could take me grocery shopping the next day. God had blessed her, and she wanted to give back. $350 later, we left the grocery store. I had gone about $50 over what she said she had to give, but she insisted I not worry about it. When we arrived back at my home, she handed me an envelope, and said, "Here’s the other part of your surprise–it’s $50 short!" When my husband and I finally opened the envelope later and counted, there was $950! She had bought us at least a month’s worth of groceries, and had given us $1,000! Praise God! He is so good, and so FAITHFUL!! I was so overwhelmed by His goodness, and faithfulness, there was nothing left for me to do but weep and repent. Why had I ever thought otherwise? Praise the Lord, He cares for us!

God Provided

Leave a comment

Brittany and I were in a situation where we needed to move, which we both knew was God’s will. So we found an apartment that was a great deal and we even got discounts for some reason (God). So it came to a point that we needed about four hundred dollars to hold the apartment, which we did not have. So we prayed about it and trusted God to provide. Sure enough He did. A family was actually saving for a few weeks and they felt led to give to us. Wow God. Next step to move on the 1st we needed about one thousand dollars for security deposit and rent. We continued to believe that God would provide. We were very encouraged by listening to Adam on Wednesday night. Thursday at about 3pm a family friend called and asked how much money we needed. We told her about one thousand all together but we could make it with six hundred. She goes, "you need 1400?" “No, no six hundred,” we replied. "Oh just take fourteen hundred." Thank you God!

Change of Heart

Leave a comment

I have a friend who has had a very painful life physically, mentally and financially. She was going to the doctors one day and asked if I could pay for her. I agreed. She was behind in paying her bill there by about $800. The front office staff have at times been very cruel to her. Once even yelling at her in front of other patients about how she hasn’t paid her bill. We prayed together and asked God to go before her and prepare the hearts of everyone she would encounter. She went to her appointment. The staff happily agreed to call me and let me pay the bill. When I spoke to them I told them how much we appreciated that they let her do this and that they had no idea how much it has helped her during this difficult time in her life. After my friend came home from the doctors and the pharmacy she called me. She was so excited she could hardly stand it. Everyone at the doctor’s office was wonderful to her. The lady that let me pay her bill pulled my friend aside and told her that she was able to get her balance due down from $800 to $200. When she went to the pharmacy to get her medicine the bill was only $1 and it is usually $130. My friend said that even the doctor was very kind and said that he would work with her so that she could continue to be their patient. God made a way where there seemed to be none and blessed her with more than we asked for. My heart was flooded with thankfulness for a God of such mercy and grace.

God’s Business

I believe the Lord wants me to share a testimony of God’s divine provision in my life. Back in February or March of this year, I went to my CPAs and dropped off all the documents necessary for my corporate & personal taxes to get done. When he was done, he contacted me so I could pick everything up. This was around the middle of the month of March. To my surprise, and by the grace of God, I actually made more than the previous year (I wasn’t really paying much attention through out the year as to how much income my business was generating) which caused an increase in the amount of taxes due (I was making quarterly tax estimated payments) for the year 2011 and the 1st quarterly tax estimated payment was also adjusted to reflect the changes.

To make a long story short, I was stuck with a federal tax bill of $3846 and a state tax bill of $420 for the year 2011 taxes and my 1st quarterly tax estimated payment was adjusted, which ended up being $975 MORE for the federal taxes and $110.00 MORE for the state taxes than what I was used to paying. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any money saved up because I’ve been living week to week trying to pay my bills and paying off debts. All of the taxes were due on April 15th. So here I was, faced with an additional $5351 in taxes that I wasn’t counting on or didn’t even think about when I dropped off the documents with my CPA. I had about 1 month left.

So I simply prayed and asked the Lord to help me get through the month and help me get my taxes paid on time so I wouldn’t run into any problems with the tax agencies. And as God’s Word tells us in Matthew 6:25-34 I tried NOT to worry about the whole situation, but instead put my trust and confidence in God because I know that my Father is awesome and loves me and has the power to save as well as provide for my needs. As I expected, the Lord came to my rescue!! For a period of about 5 or 6 weeks, my business supernaturally skyrocketed from the middle of March to around April 24th. I was getting so many orders in my business during that period, I couldn’t even believe it. I had never seen anything like that before!! And as you can suspect, all of my taxes were paid on time and I was also able to get all of my regular living expenses paid on time as well.

The Lord is mighty to SAVE and PROVIDE for His children!!

God Loves Wendy’s

Leave a comment

The Connolly family traveled to West York to return a shirt I had bought at TJ Maxx. While in the area, we decided to get some frosty’s from Wendy’s. Nicole has a coupon booklet with 10 free junior frosty’s, but you’re only allowed to use one per visit. The woman on the other side of the drive through speaker said we could use two. Although that seems so small and irrelevant, I thought it was sweet and I wanted to do something for her. My first thought was to ask and see if there was anything wrong with her physically.

When we pulled around to exchange our coupons for our frosty’s, the young lady herself began to tell us that she wasn’t doing very well. When I pushed the issue further, she mentioned that she pulled her back at work and that her feet hurt. I told her that I pray for people and see healings and asked her if I could pray for her. She was more than willing to let me! I asked for her hand, prayed, and she was instantly healed! It turns out that God loves Wendy’s!
