I went to MOPS this morning and a couple came from Missoula that have been trained with Crown Ministries and I was sitting there thinking about our “budget” or lack of one and the subjects of tithing among others. I was sitting there feeling guilty that we were not able to tithe at all the last while, but then I realized how, yes, we were not able to tithe always, but God provided for us when we had no income for more than one year. We lived on savings, when truly we should not have had savings.
God provided for us in a way that I know was only Him, and I saw it as it was His blessing on us for giving to Him, not just a lawful 10%, but the attitude of giving from our hearts was there and He blessed us later for that.
It just made me instead of mourning the fact I cannot make a normal budget…(because everytime I try I realize it is impossible for us to live) I will rejoice that God is my provider and I know He will care of us like no one else can!
