"You can trust me”. This has been something that God has continually reminded me of since being in DTS - especially when it has come to finances. Every time I am in need or any time He has challenged me to give, He has always whispered to my heart, “You can trust me.”
b Recently, I was shopping at a store and I noticed they had cute, colorful socks. Random fact about me - I LOVE colorful socks. They make me happy! :) When I checked the price tag and read $0.94, I thought, “Yes! I will buy myself a pair!” However, when I picked up the pair of socks, I felt a gentle “nudging” NOT to buy the socks.
g Thus began my argument with God. (Note - I do not suggest arguing with God; it’s sort of pointless). “But they’re only ninety-four cents!” I thought. “You can trust me.” He replied. “But God, they’re ninety-four cents.” I responded. “You can trust me.” He said again. And so I left the store empty-handed and sockless.
o That very same night, God challenged me to give. I asked God for an amount and wrote it down on the check. Later, when I checked my bank account, I realized that the amount God told me to give was near the same I had in my account. “God, thanks for not letting me get those socks,” I said, as the day’s events began to make sense.
s About a week later, a couple friends of mine gave me a gift card - to the very same store with the colorful socks!
i So what did I learn? I learned that God cares even about your wants, and desires to give you those wants. And something as seemingly miniscule and unimportant as socks - He cares about those too. I’d say He makes a pretty great Dad. :)
