I was at Walmart the other night...to spend a bunch of gift cards I got for Christmas. Our living room has one standing lamp but it's not that bright so I was perusing the lamp aisle. Nothing seemed to be the *right one* for what we need. I felt like I should hold off...maybe check out IKEA some time or something...when I had *real* $$$. lol
I take oldest to work yesterday and what do you know...I ended up leaving w/ 10 little wall lamps!!! The owner/his boss/my friend of the art studio closed down the sewing studio & moved it back into the art studio so she has ALL this stuff and she just let me HAVE it! She was going to throw it away. Actually, more than half of the nearly new lamps WERE outside, ready for the trash!!!
Seriously--God is SO good. THIS is my life! Stuff like this (now) happens all.the.time. God KNOWS you have need before you even speak it. Believe in faith. He cares and he WILL provide...LAVISHLY! Even LAMPS---LIGHTS from the Father of Lights!!! JOYOUS HALLELUJAH! Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly **lights**, who does not change like shifting shadows.
If He cares about stupid lamps--He cares about YOU!
Matt 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
