"Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap;
they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them;
how much more valuable you are than the birds!"
- Luke 12:42
In that moment, it dawned on me, that even in our sin, as we took out loan after loan to live a comfortable life, God has provided for us, exactly what we needed. As we now deal with the repercussions of mistakes made five to ten years ago, I am so thankful that God has given us the means to get back on track. I am also thankful for His forgiveness for our shortsighted selfishness. So, when I regretfully think it is hard to live virtually paycheck-to-paycheck because we have amassed so much debt, I am grateful to a God who knows exactly what we need, and lovingly gives it to us.
