This doesn't directly deal with Zakiah, but I just had to share how good God is! First of all, He is good for finding me worthy enough to wake me up this morning. Only by His grace and mercy am I here today. Secondly, God knows how tight I am on money right now.
For awhile, I have not been able to locate my mailbox key, which was mysteriously missing after Josh drove my car for a few days (this was where I kept my key at the time). I was not getting important mail because I could not really afford to pay for a replacement key.
Fortunately for a couple of times, I have been able to use the master key at the management office (as long as I traded off my license or keys for collateral). However, I did not want to abuse this and decided to scrap up some money for a replacement key. But being the provider of all things, today God blessed me to get a new mailbox key without having to pay the $25 replacement fee! Praise Him! I mean, it was not like I was grudging to pay for the key today because I knew it was something I needed to do and God provided me the cash to buy one. I was very willing. But God was so good to surprise me with this blessing!
While this may be a small thing to some, it means a lot to me! It shows that with an open and willing heart and a trust for God, He will do above what I think, imagine, or ask for...Ephesians 3:20. I hope that Zakiah will learn of God's goodness at a very early age and not nearly as late as I did around my early 20s when my life was so chaotic.
Anyway, thank You, Father! Giving You the praise and honor and sharing Your goodness to the world. :) Now, I am off to work on being a "Good Steward" of what God has given me...a day of life!
