When in need, she asked, and she received

Some may not believe the reports, but I do, of people going for groceries with no money, and someone else being there at the checkout saying, “I’ll pay your bill; the Lord led me here to do this for you.”

When my children were very small, my husband left and refused to pay child support – not a dime. I got a minimum wage job and bought a $200 car to get back and forth to work. Child care was not cheap when you had three children. It took a large portion of my check.

I had no food to feed my children twice during those difficult times. I asked the Lord to make a way for me to feed my children until my check came. Both times, the very next day, $10 came in the mail. I thanked the Lord for answered prayer. Back then, you could fill a large paper bag with groceries and buy a gallon of milk for $10.

Ask and ye shall receive (John 16:24). Jesus was my food pantry. Back then, there were no food pantries that I knew of. The Lord provided well. He always made a way.

I later became a nurse, but the Lord has always been there. He sticketh closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).
