Rhianna's Testimony: "Jesus wants to bless you today"

The next guest post in my series of testimonies about God at work in everyday lives, comes courtesy of fellow blogger Rhianna of Romeo: love, laugh, craft. Thanks for sharing, Rhianna!

One of the things I regret about my blog, is not discussing my faith, enough.  I always thought that someone’s faith/religion was a private matter, but I no longer believe that. I think that is one of the  problems with the world today, too many people for too long have kept their faith private.  I was very fortunate to grow up in a Christian home, with very loving, morally conscience parents, and where our faith was exercised daily. As an adult, I still live by everything that they taught  and raised me to believe, I just sometimes forget.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.
Acts 16:31

A few weekends ago, on a Saturday evening I pulled up at a restaurant to pick up food that I ordered. When I was ready to leave, my car would not start.  It seemed that my battery was dead. I had to call for roadside assistance to jump my battery.

Later that night, when I got home,  I found that my laptop battery was dead.  My car battery and my laptop battery both died on the same day?! I thought to myself that maybe God is trying to teach me something or maybe this is just a coincidence? To some, these things may not seem like a big deal.  I try not to make things like this stress me or anything, but I really didn’t have the extra money at the time to pay for extra repairs or replacements.

The following day, my mother and I took my car to a mechanic shop. I was expecting to have to buy another car battery or something that would be a major expense.  The problem was that some wire got loose. That’s all.  The mechanic didn’t even charge me to look at my car.

I was not too worried about my computer battery, but I was not sure how much that would cost.  And this was not something that could wait. I depend on my laptop for my business. So I went and bought one. Buying this didn’t make me totally broke, but it was just an added expense that I certainly don’t need at the time. 

When I got home that night, I checked my mail. In my mail, was a card that said, “Jesus wants to bless you today,” and inside of it was a check for an amount that would cover my laptop battery. It was from one of my aunts. This was very much unexpected; people in my family don’t just casually write checks to one another. I called up my aunt to thank her, and she said, “Don’t thank me, thank God. He is the One who laid it my heart to do this.”

I was felt so relieved. Then I felt a little foolish for doubting that everything would be okay. I often hear that people usually picture God with the same characteristics as their parents (subconsciously). At that moment, I felt like God was saying to me, “Silly girl.”  That is often what my parents would say to me when I worry about something I don’t need to worry about. I felt as if God was saying that to me, “Silly girl, why do you worry? Don’t you know I have everything under control? I will take care of you and your needs.”

For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.
Matthew 6:8

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Matthew 6:26

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Matthew 6:31-33

  1. This is the post that I had to read to remember once again that God is the only one we can truly depend on for our worries. I thank you for writing this post for it made me pray once more to be grateful to have a constant companion in Jesus.

  2. I love when God does that, sends us little reminders that he is here and watching, and that He does promise to meet our every need.
