Manna In the Desert

"He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye." (Deuteronomy 32:10 NKJV) The Hebrews, after suffering many years of painful slavery were released just to wander in the desert for 40 years. And, when they were freed, I'm sure they left with only the clothes they could carry, and a minimum amount of food, water, and money. According to The Holy Bible it appears that at some point, while wandering in the desert, they ran out of food and water, and it was probably scorching hot. But, as always, God provided for their needs. He gave them water, meat, and manna. The current world conditions were are living in with a poor economic status, high prices, natural diseasters, and people losing thier jobs, homes, and all they have, could be looked at as living through a desert land. But, we all need to realize that God IS in control and that He will provide for our needs, even if we can't see how. Somehow it will all work out in the end. That is where faith and trust in God come in, and strength for the journey. God provided for His chlidren then, He will provide for us now, and in the future. That has not, and will never change. "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." (Hebrews 13:8 NKJV) Love, Beau

We often grumble like the desert wanderers when things do not go our way. They grumbled and then got what they wanted and we still not happy. We need to resolve to be content under all circumstances. Often what we want is never waht we really need. Our Lord knows this and provides for our daily needs.
Last Sunday when I told you about the sermon you wrote being the one I chose as a basis for making my favorite bracelet...well now I will make one just like it for you to auction off tomorrow! How cool is that...I am so honored to be able to do this for you dear Beau...lets hope it brings lots of green papers!!
All my love, Miss Peach (who lives in a desert)
