I heard this testimony from a widow in my Christian church home group. She said her driveway started cracking and crumbling beyond repair. It needed to be replaced. The widow knew she did not have the funds for a new driveway so she started praying. She felt the Lord told her not to worry about it. He would take care of it for her. As time went on, the driveway grew worse. She began to become concerned that her car was being damaged by it. She was feeling desperate and reminded the Lord again of His promise to her. The next day there was a knock at the door. It was an employee of the water company. He notified her of a large water main break in the area. They pulled up her driveway, fixed the water main break, and then repaved her driveway. The widow had received a brand new driveway without paying a single penny! The Lord comes through on His promises.
I was at the store yesterday shopping for a shirt to wear to Thanksgiving dinner. I found the perfect one on clearance for $9! We were running late for church so I handed it to my teen daughter with $11 to pay for it while I pulled up the car. My daughter arrived at the car with the shirt and my $11. I asked how she paid for it, and she said the person behind her gave her a coupon that made the shirt cost nothing! I could have easily afforded the shirt, but I LOVE to see how God provides. Plus it encourages me to be more generous with my giving since I know God’s has endless amounts of provision and creative ways to provide for us. Things like this happen to our family often. I am grateful for the opportunity to share this testimony with others. I hope you and your family enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. I pray the Lord provides for your family in some special way this week so you will know He is looking after you. God bless!

Back in 1999, I knew I wanted to use my writing skills for God’s kingdom, but I was not sure how to begin. One day, the Lord told me to buy a laptop computer. Back then, laptops were pricey! Still, I bought it in obedience. I used it mostly for writing at first. Over the next few years, many of the things that used to be done on paper transitioned to the computer because of the internet’s growing popularity. I emailed long-distance relatives regularly, and I could not imagine life without that little computer.
Then one day, I received a check in the mail. The enclosed letter informed me that a class action lawsuit regarding a defect on some of the computers had been won. I received the full amount of the laptop computer at a time when I needed it the most. Once again, God had provided for me in an unexpected way. God is good!
