God Always Provides

AUTHOR:  Kacie Walenczak

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. (Mt. 7:7-8)

I often get ideas during the night and wake up with my mind buzzing. It’s in these moments I believe the Lord is talking to me because all my worry is stripped away, and I find peace in my decisions. I had one of these moments a few months back when I was fretting about what to do for Easter with the children of St. Paul’s. I had been praying and asking for a sign. Then one night I woke up thinking about the Stations of the Cross the Evangelism MAT has done and thought, that would be fun to do with the kids. So began my journey of creating a walk with Jesus, from the garden of Gethsemane to His resurrection. I of course began to worry; would the kids enjoy this? Would I be able to find what I need to transform the rooms? Would it be good enough? He provided! I went to a MAT meeting one Monday and shared some of my concerns. Everyone had ideas of what I could use and where to find it. That Thursday I went to church and began looking for the things on my list. My daughters went with me, and I asked them to find me a crown of thorns. In the fellowship hall in a corner, they found vines woven together in the shape of a crown. It was perfect. Weeks later while setting up on a Sunday morning I was looking for something to use as a blindfold. I turned around and upon the empty counter sat a blindfold. Again, he provided. I asked the girls to find me a purple robe, and they found one. He provided. This experience brought many smiles, laughs, and great discussions. All my worry and all my fears were driven out during this time because he always provided.

“And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” (Mt. 21:22)
