There were so many blessings during the month of June….almost too numerous to count. I share these monthly blessings posts to not only remind myself of YHWH/God’s goodness; but also to encourage others to truly trust YHWH/God. In my May Blessings post, I shared a testimony about a conversation with YHWH/God; and how He had blessed me with help three days later. A day after that (which was June 1st), YHWH/God blessed me with more help. To say that I do NOT enjoy cooking is a DRASTIC understatement. In my heart, I wanted a chef to just cook dinner. It was the meal that I least looked forward to making each day. Again, during my conversation with the Most High, I didn’t complain; I recited Psalm 121:1 to Him; and thanked Him for being my helper. Not only did God send me a Chef; but one who could make Caribbean food (which is an anomaly in the area where I live). In my eyes, not only did YHWH/God bless me; but He also delivered me from having to cook dinner and lunch. The Chef makes so much food; that it has been more than enough for dinner and weekends. I just praise YHWH/God, because He’s interested in every detail of our lives; as well as truly gives us the desires of our hearts. He also gives us exceedingly beyond what we ask. I just praise and thank Him!
Another blessing during the month of June was home renovations. I was vacuuming the rug in my living room; and thought to myself: “This rug needs to be cleaned.” I then thought to myself: “This whole house needs an overhaul.” The very next day, my husband came home with a new living room set. He asked me my thoughts. I responded that I LOVED it! (My husband has great taste; so I totally trust Him to select things for our home). From there, we have been upgrading each room. We’re not done yet; but we’re well on our way.
The blessing in all of this is two-fold. YHWH/God takes care of me and my household, because of our covenant relationship. I rely on Him alone to provide for me. There’s no pressure on my husband to get things for me. YHWH/God will put things on His heart; and He does it. The second part of the blessing is that we are able to pay for everything in cash. Once our hearts took hold of the revelation of Romans 13:8, we made the quality decision to stay out of debt; and trust YHWH/God for everything.
Perhaps the greatest blessing of June is that one of the contractors working in our home gave his life to YHWH/God. On the day that it happened, my husband was upstairs witnessing to him; while I was downstairs praying for him. I just praise YHWH/God! One more treasure for Him.
There were so many more blessings; but I don’t want this post to get super long. Thank you for reading. Please share some of the ways YHWH/God has blessed you; and may He bless you even more. Have an excellent weekend!
My husband had just finished his lunch; as he and I sat at the dining room table. My 7 year old son had come downstairs to the dining room and showed his money to Papa. My husband asked him, how much did he have? To which my son responded: $1.50. My husband asked him if he would give him all of his money, except one cent. My son paused and said no. “I’ll only have one penny if I gave you all my money.” My husband responded: okay. He then called our second son (6 years) down to the dining room and asked him for all of his money. My second son said no. My husband responded: okay. He then called our oldest daughter (4 years) to the dining room and asked her the same question; to which she responded yes, and gladly gave him her dollar. He called our baby girl (2 years) downstairs to the dining room and asked her for all of her money; and she too responded yes and gave it to him. My husband said to the girls: “Because you gave me all that you had, I’m going to give you back your dollar and another one.” The girls rejoiced and said thank you papa! He then said: “I only added a dollar; but I like multiplication; so I’m going to give you another dollar.” The girls rejoiced again and thanked their papa. He then said: “Because you said thank you, I’m going to give you another dollar.” The girls again rejoiced and thanked papa.” Finally, my husband said: “Because you cheerfully gave me all that you had, I’m going to give you another dollar.” The girls celebrated once again; and cheerfully thanked their papa.
I sat there the entire time as I watched this biblical lesson being played out before my very eyes. My husband and I got up from the table; and went into the foyer to look at the new chairs that we had just bought. The girls followed us into the foyer; while my sons stayed at the table thinking. After we finished in the foyer, my husband, the girls and I went into the kitchen. I explained to the boys that they had just witnessed and been a part of a biblical lesson. I shared with them the time that YHWH/God told me to give away my entire check. It was very uncomfortable for me; but I did it anyway. Two weeks later, I had received a debt-free vehicle. I explained that it’s good to give your normal tithes and offerings; but there will be times when the Father asks you to give more. It’s only because He wants to give more to you.
This week’s declaration is based on Psalm 32:8 and is: YHWH/God will instruct and teach me in the way I should go; He will counsel me with His loving eye on me. Last night I asked God to give me instruction concerning a matter. I had a dream and then Psalm 32:8 was the first verse my eyes were drawn to this morning. I was beyond delighted because God is so very faithful in the plethora of ways that He answers our prayers.
The mobility exercise of the week is hip openers. Stand and lift one foot off of the floor, bending at the knee. Move the knee to the outside of the body in a circular motion. Click here for a demonstration. As always, YHWH/God bless you and have an excellent rest of your week!
