God's goodness

I am continually awed by God's goodness. We have a situation in our life. About a week and a half ago, we learned that our Tax bill is significantly higher than we can afford. Every Quarter, we owe 2060 to the US government, and don't have the income to support it. We had been saving 1450 a quarter, which means we're about 650 short per quarter. Either we eat, or the Taxman gets paid. Ugh....

To compound things, we also learned that we owed 900 from last year. To say fear set in is an understatement. How would we pay this bill? The church doesn't have this money available.

After being given some money, and cobbling together all that we had set aside, we were short. 616 dollars short.

The question remained. How would we pay this bill?

Last Wednesday, I shared all this to a pastor friend, and He and I spent allot of time praying over the issue, and through it, God made clear, He would provide. All to often, we forget, He is the one that always provides. Even through we may have Jobs, ultimately, He is the one that provides. In situations like ours, when we have no ability to provide, He provides. He cares; and He is at work for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purposes. He provides, when we are weak. He is a good God who cares for His children.

This morning, someone just told me they are sending a check that will cover the balance.

The Lord is good, and his love endures forever, his faithfulness reaches to the skies.
