Getting Freebies God’s Way – Part Deux!

27 Jun

Earlier this week, I wrote about how with God, He doesn’t just provide income from our traditional “jobs,” but also He send additional ways for us to make money, or just gives us freebies.   I’m sure we have all worried about finances from time to time, (including myself.)

But instead of worrying, what if we just said, “God, I’ll do what I can, but you’re going to have to do the rest.  If you want me to be able to pay my bills, you’re going to have to provide a way, because as it is, I see no way out.”   (Below I’m doing Spanish tutoring at a local Mexican restaurant, another uconventional way that God has allowed me to bring in income for my family.) 🙂

Of course, the word also tells us to give and it will come back to us.  🙂  Are you giving to others?  If you don’t have money, are you giving time?  Are you helping others?  When we give, it opens the door for God to bless us.  (Another example of a “freebie from God” is when I recently won a sales contest at work, and my hubby and I were treated to dinner at a five star restaurant.  Here is some of the dessert.)  God loves to bless His kids with freebies!

Just the other day, I saw another homeless family at Wal-Mart.  Being alone and a female, I only stop when I feel God telling me to.  This time, it was so clear.  There was a man, his pregnant wife, a newborn baby, and a little girl who was about my sons age.  Before I even realized what was going on, I’d stopped my car and was talking with them and praying over them.  I only had $11 to give them, but I knew that was enough.  After I gave them some money, it looked like they were heading over to the nearby pizza place to get some dinner for their family.  They thanked me, and I was glad that I had listened to the Lord’s prompting. 🙂

When we are giving to others, (even if we think it’s just a little bit,) God will bless that!  Just like the lady in the Bible who could only give a coin or two, we have to do what we can to help others.  Then watch God bless you supernaturally.  I’ll tell more about this in part three! 🙂
