God continually surprises me in the ways that he provides for me especially during this pandemic. He did it again this week through one of his daughters.
The back story is that I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist for an eye exam at the end of December. He prescribed some progressive lens glasses for me. So after years of going to a Dollar Store with a piece of paper to help me pick out which pair of $1 readers to buy, I went ahead and got the glasses ordered. I thought my stimulus check would come in time, but it did not show up and still hasn’t. My bank account was hacked last summer, so I had to go to the bank for them to close that account and open a new one. Consequently the IRS does not have my new account info to direct deposit the stimulus check.
I shared about it in a weekly update with my prayer partners for my ministry but did not list it as a prayer request. One of them puts together prayer requests for my church to email out each week and each week two missionaries are included. Well, she included me for this past week and listed the info about glasses as one of my prayer requests, which at first felt a bit embarrassing since I did not actually list it as a prayer request.
On Wednesday I had a phone call from a woman from church I had not seen since the shutdown. She saw the prayer request. She had received her stimulus check but had no need for it. She offered to pay for my glasses. We met yesterday and she gave me the money. We also had a wonderful conversation.
I went and got my new glasses after our time together. They will take some getting used to, but I am so grateful to God and to my sister in Jesus for the provision.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
