I truly believe that God wants to bless His children. And He does it in many different ways. But huge surprise blessings always amaze me.
So, we are planning on going to see my parents on the 27th. They live about an hour and 20 minutes from us. Well back last fall we had our van in for maintenance, and it really needs new tires. As in we really shouldn't be driving it much. (We could use a new vehicle but it's not a "need" yet) Well, when my husband lost his job we kind of just pushed the issue to the side. So, two days ago I was thinking that I really didn't want to drive our van to my parents' house, but having three kids who are now almost as big as me smooshed into the back seat of my husband's car wasn't real comfortable to them. (They could do it, but who wants to listen to them complaining about it )
Yesterday, I get the mail and there was a letter from my mom. In it was some money. She also sent a note that it was from some of the money she had received when her dad died. There was a check for each kid for some new summer clothes, and a check for me with no comment about it. It's enough to get new tires.
He knows our needs. Sometimes we have to wait, but He knows our needs. I hadn't even prayed about this situation for months, but He heard.
Is 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Thank you for sharing about your blessing! I also needed tires recently. My summer tires needed replacement and it was time to change to them. I didn't have quite what I needed to pay for them but God provided in the form of a decent tax refund for my husband this year. I found it interesting that we were both blessed with the ability to purchase tires. Perhaps there is a shared journey in our near future. 😉
Joecool: the verse doesn't say when there is peace and safety, it says they are asking for peace and safety.

EnochWalked: www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-53770859 'Israel will also "suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined" in President Trump's Vision for Peace between Israel and the Palestinians'.

EnochWalked: 'The UAE, he said, sees this as "a stoppage of the annexation, not a suspension".' Does that mean Israel are giving up not just on the areas reserved for the Palestinians, but also the areas that Trump offered Israel? Is this the real covenant with many?

EnochWalked: Let's see if "Emmanuel"'s 10 nation army will start attacking the forces of the would-be Sultan of the new Ottoman Empire, whose eyes are on Jerusalem. At the rate things are intensifying, this year could really go out with a bang.

EnochWalked: when asked how long Israel had agreed to suspend its West Bank annexation plans as part of a normalization deal with the United Arab Emirates." Presumably the ink won't try until after November, or January then.

EnochWalked: "and in the midst of the week he causeth sacrifice and present to cease" (Young's Literal Translation). Does "sacrifice and present" sound like the give and take of a trade or deal? Could 2020 be the middle of a set of 7 years, starting in 2017?

EnochWalked: "and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (KJV) Could the desolation be lockdown and is "that determined" a vaccine "poured upon the desolate"?

JamesVa: Interesting that they call it the Abraham Accord. There is only one Accord with Abraham that god recognized, and the land belongs to Israel. Makes you wonder about the choice of name...

Boymaker2: EW, Brenda Weltner also thinks sweets in the Trib from Detroit 2017.

Boymaker2: Wow. Fat fingers type word salad.

Boymaker2: Brenda has the end already on schedule from the Rev 12 sign

disciple4life: Boymaker, Brenda Weltner already missed several things and she tripled down on her timeline and predictions, which some have already not panned out. She missed the Tu B Av, and another key event that had to happen in July. Her entire theory uses one source

disciple4life: that incorrectly put Rev 12 sign on Feast of trumpets, in 2017, but a dozen Jewish and Non-Jewish sources all agree that it wasn't.

boymaker: I don't understand how the Trib could have started without the agreement being confirmed.
