He knows my name, He knows my every thought and He hears me when I call.
Growing up in a family of three with parents who walked out their faith before us daily and encouraged us to trust God was a blessing. Our family was different than the rest. As each family structure is unique in its own way.
Being the youngest of three aka the “baby” I have always been surrounded by love. A family grounded in love.
I am a firm believer that our relationships with our earthly fathers are to be an example of our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
My father has been that prime example in my life of that. My dad has been a leader, a disciplinarian, loved me, showed us how a man should love his wife, and his children.
It was June and my mother was graduating from her bachelors program. We went out to eat and afterwards went downtown Brooklyn on Montique Street to walk around and enjoy the day. Of course as ladies we can’t resist the stores, so we all went into the shoe store and browsed around. I tried on a few shoes and one shoe stood out and I said oh my gosh I have got to have the shoes. Of course I didn’t have the money but I wanted them anyway. I had to leave them behind and only wish I purchased them. . The men were doing their own thing and we were in total separate areas. I was with my mom and my sister and other family members. After a long day we went headed to our cars to go home. Upon entering the car their was a box sitting on the back seat. Nobody knew who they were for my dad said open them and as I did I screamed. The very shoe I tried on was right before my eyes and they were mine.
This continues to be a reminder to me that God knows what we desire and what we want. We may not have the money, the talent, or tools to get them. However it’s my up to us it’s up to God to make a way for them to become possible. I didn’t have money for the shoes and I never even asked my dad but yet he saw fit to get them for me. As does our Heavenly Father He knows what you need and will provide when you least except it.
Till this day I still have those shoes and I love them.
Know that God hears and sees what you need. He will provide in due time.
