We’ve all heard that term, “The Lord works in mysterious ways.” It’s amazing just how true and real that statement is. I’ve learned throughout my life that He works in ways we just don’t see coming often times. Maybe its through a tragedy. Often times we may wonder what God is doing when something bad happens. What I have learned though, is that those things happen in order to give us a chance to return to Him and glorify Him more. It also allows us to gain strong glimpses of His goodness when he moves others to work.
My family and I received a wonderful view of this in the past couple of days. My son, Brandon, was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic this past fall. Obviously, with all of that comes added costs of buying insulin, monitors, test strips, and doctor follow-ups. It was certainly a challenging time frame for the family and most certainly my son as he has learned to live this new life as diabetic. He has adjusted to this so much better than I could have ever hoped though and does not let it run his life. In fact, he was named by our local Children’s Healthcare system as their Comeback Athlete of the Month and now is being voted on for Athlete of the Year. He is a competitive travel baseball player and did not let it stop him at all.
With that said, this week, at our doorstep, there was delivered a whole host of diabetic supplies. A new monitor, test strips, needles, and more and will be replenished every three months at no cost to us. Someone, somewhere put our name in to this Christian Foundation that is now supplying these supplies on going. I can’t even begin to tell you what an amazing blessing that was to our family. To know that a substantial portion of this permanent cost is now covered is simply amazing.
This was just further proof of God’s amazing and mysterious work. It is quite evident that His Spirit moved through someone to do something that we never saw coming and was a tremendous blessing to our family. We are so grateful to this mysterious person and recognize that this was God’s work.
If you ever have a doubt that God is not at work in your lives. Think again. He is very much there through every aspect of our lives. He has a purpose for everything He does and that we encounter in life. Challenges come to Glorify Him and wonderful things happen to Glorify Him. It all comes back to God. Don’t lose site of the Lord and take time to speak to Him through prayer. he will intervene in your life. Many times in ways you never see coming. He is always there and I am so thankful to have a God that loves us that much and whose glory shines down everyday in our lives.
