The Milk Man

“Be not therefore like them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.” ~Matthew 6:8

God has a way of letting us know that He is aware of the things plaguing our hearts. 

I have been recovering from my third surgery in less than six months and the fatigue of it all has overwhelmed me. Tired of being tired, I felt very discouraged today. 

Various friends told me to try B12. I did some research and tried the liquid which only worked intermittently. I had planned to ask my doctor for the shot which I heard works much better than the supplements, however, I would have to wait until the end of February to do so. 

After dinner I decided to try one of the chocolate cupcakes my five year old made along with a glass of milk. I grabbed the container of coconut milk and read the sides while I warmed up my treat. 

  
I was astonished to read that coconut milk is an excellent source of B12. 

  
Just 8 ounces provides 50% of the daily amount needed. I could do nothing but thank God. At that moment I knew He knew what I had been going through. My heart filled with gratitude. 

 
 I’m sure most people will label this a “coincidence,” but not I. I know that God communicates with us in a myriad of ways. He provided an immediate answer to something that I needed. It gave me so much hope.  

The moral of the story is that God is everything. The Beginning. The End. The Alpha. The Omega. The Great Physician. Lord of Lords. King of Kings. Jehovah Jireh. And yes, the Milk Man, too!

Even the Wind Obeys

“He brings the wind out of His treasuries.”~Psalm 135:7

As part of my recovery I am required to walk several times a day. My little son is very good about reminding and escorting me as well. 

Some days I am reluctant to walk because of the heat. Today was such a day. When we made it to the corner, I had to pause for a spell because it was blazing. I told my son how hot I was. 

And would you believe that right then and there, God sent a glorious refreshing breeze?! I stood in the shadow of the tree which was gently fanning me, soaking it in and praising God for His goodness.
