My Secret Pledge

Several posts back, I shared with you on how the Lord has taken care of me and my children in the face of adversity. I spoke of how the Lord provided a job, a raise over and over again. But I also mentioned that I made a commitment in the building fund hoping to meet that pledge little by little. 

I gave to the Lord reminding the Lord of my promise, “I will fulfill this pledge”. Not expecting any great gifts in return just wanting to be a part of what God is doing to save people and do my part in any way I can, I opened up my mail and there was the balance of my secret pledge. For I told no one what or how much my pledge was going to be, yet, there it was a blessing to present to the Lord as I gave Him back what He has blessed me over and over with. It felt so good to sit with my children and let them know God answered my prayers, that He has given and I am giving it back to Him. Reminding them of all the times God took care of us. I have never written a check for that much money at one time, $1000.00. It may not seem like much to some but to me it was. The “Widow’s Mite”,she gave of her substance.

Luke 21:2-4
2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: 
4For... she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

That much money is not easy to come by, but my friend, God has given and given, I do not fear for my tomorrows, I face them gladly knowing God sees my through every day. Do you see why I love Him so? He is always soooo good to me. Always, always, so good to me, He takes such good care of me. Okay, so I made another pledge. Can't wait to see God help me meet this one, too.
