Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

God has been answering our prayers so mightily the past few days.

When we moved back here, we didn’t have a lawnmower. We have a pretty big yard so not having one wasn’t an option. We began praying for a lawnmower. Stephen came home from a men’s fellowship Saturday evening to tell me that someone had given us a riding mower – and a brand far nicer than we would have been able to afford had we bought one. We would have been happy with a push mower, but that is a lot of work with our yard so we are very thankful for a riding mower.

As if that weren’t enough. . .God provided even more of our needs, in a way that far exceeded my expectations.

Since losing weight, I had very few clothes that actually looked nice anymore. Most of what I had was too baggy, so I started praying that God would provide. I had planned on doing some altering, but hadn’t had a chance to do much yet.

Yesterday at church a friend of mine came up to me to ask what size I wore and if I wanted some clothes that she had sitting around. I told her I didn’t think I could wear that size, but I’d love to try and see.

What she brought me was far beyond what I had in mind when I was praying. She brought me more clothes than I have had in years. I had so much fun trying them on when I got home! Almost all of the clothes fit me, and the few that didn’t fit were so close that I put them in a back closet for when I lose a little more weight. There were almost a dozen dresses, both casual and dressy, some jumpers, a few skirts, several cardigans, and a couple of blazers. She even brought me three pairs of shoes. I got a giggle out of the shoes – I needed a new pair of black dress shoes and the black pumps she gave me were brand new and fit perfectly!

She told me that she had been holding onto the clothes wondering what to do with them.

I just kept saying, “Oh wow!” over and over as I tried on the clothes. God has answered my prayers exceeding abundantly above anything that I had imagined!
