God has Provided

  “Yahweh-Yireh” – the phrase comes from Genesis when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son. Abraham had faithfully waited for this heir, now God was testing his obedience. Was he willing? Amazingly He was. The test over, a substitution was given.

“Abraham named the place Yahweh-Yireh (meaning- the LORD will provide). To this day, people still use that name as a proverb: ‘On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.'” Gen 22:14

I have been praying for provision in regard to my parent’s care. “God, I need them closer.” His answer had been clear: if you are obedient, on this mountain that I’ve called you to, I will provide… From down on my knees – to up on a step stool. I wrote the phrase above the door.

I believed it would come, but for months I’ve looked at those big loopy words as I leave home and drive south. “When Father?”  This crazy schedule only gets crazier and the hours only grow longer. My mom has fired every outside help I’ve hired and she will not consider moving.

Then in the space of one week… she had 3 falls, resulting in 4 broken ribs. Life changed fast. Hours extended. God changed her heart and we were presented with a house where all of us can live together. His provision has come! In His time. A much better plan than I imagined.

Our family needs prayers as we clean out, organize and mesh 2 households together (think Waltons). Move in is scheduled for April 1.
