Personal Manna

Just a quick note tonight – it’s been a busy week and I’m tired.

Long ago I knew I’d never be wealthy; I’d never have a yacht, nor a mansion.  In the past I’ve driven a 1972 Ford Pinto that was held together with Bondo and today I drive a 2007 Ford Focus which is five years newer than my wife’s minivan.

However, I have no complaints.  God has always seen to it that I have what I need and then some.

My kids are in a good school system.  My roof is new and my air conditioner works.  When something breaks I can get it fixed.  If I want something a little special for me or someone in the family, I can get it.

I feel like the Israelites.  I have manna and quail to satisfy me.  I can’t store it up, but each day what I need is given to me as a blessing.

I look at His generosity as a reason to take a moment throughout the day to say, “Hi, God,” or, “Thanks!” and “I love You!”  I believe He deserves to have me acknowledge His blessings throughout my day.

Just like He blesses me throughout every day.
