providence {day 16}

day 16

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:19

ok, so i’m not really talking about God supplying my need for cupcakes. lol. {it is kind of a need these days with all the pregnancy cravings though! ha!}

or even baby showers.

or even gifts for the baby for whom the shower is for.

i’m talking about God knowing my heart and knowing that i need community. and God supplies it. ABUNDANTLY.

baby shower2

we are overwhelmed by the baby shower that was thrown for us this past weekend at our church. it was crazy how many ladies were there and how much love i felt from each of them. i can NOT get over the fact that we just arrived a few short months ago and already they love us and treat us as family.

we are SO blessed by this community. baby shower3

God knows what we need. He knows the basics… like food, a roof over our heads, and even “things” like cars or carseats for our babies. and He supplies them.

but He ALSO knows the other needs of our heart. HE PUT THOSE THERE. how could He not know about them? He knows that we are a creature who needs to have people around us. He knows we need friends and family and love from others. He created it that way! and HE provides for our every need. even a relationship- that may seem like an extra thing that would just be nice to have, even if we don’t need it to survive. He has created us to be a people who walk together towards Him. He said so Himself in Genesis 2 that “it is not good for man to be alone”. yes, this is used a lot in marriage ceremonies but i believe it’s for every relationship in our lives. we need friends and family to survive, to be encouraged, and to point each other every day to Him. baby shower4

 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:24-25

it may seem like the baby shower that our church gave for us was a way to bless us with “things” needed for the baby. but what it really did was bless me (and Husbuddy) with love abundant and it showed me that God ALWAYS provides… God provides even a place for us to belong… in community.

for that, i praise God.
