Choosing Joy: Friends

Isaiah 26:3~"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

Sometimes God answers prayer that you have not even prayed. Does that make sense? He knows your needs before you know them. He provides what we need - when we need it. Marco and I have really tried to "teach" others that when you do for someone else in a spirit of love, it comes back to you. The Bible tells us that we are not supposed to worry (Matthew 6:25 - 34), yet I do worry. I am always humbled when He provides and I realize how weak my faith was. He always provides...yet I worry. Didn't He tell us to ask Him for our DAILY bread? (Matthew 6:11)
I have come to realize that I will always need HIS goodness on a day to day basis. My faith is so short sometimes. I need Him to come through for me daily, or I'd probably take Him for granted.
Today, a dear friend came over and made a difference in our day, our Christmas, our YEAR. She said that God put it on her family's heart to make that difference. We will not forget this act of love - ever.
I thank my Heavenly Father for showing me DAILY that He loves me and wants the best for me. It feels my heart with JOY!
