Today your prompt is easy. I want you to write about a moment in your life, and I know there have been many, when you experienced God’s providential intervention or care in a powerful way. Below are the Google search definitions. Sometimes I think Google is God’s providential care for my blogging life!

Ponder the definitions, what moment in time pops into your head when I mention God’s providential care in your life…

Remember, this is your journal and you can go as deep as you want with the prompt. Keep your writing private if you need to, share it only as God leads and you desire. Write for yourself and God first! Let this be your love language, an intimate connection between the One who knows you better than you know yourself…He will reveal Himself, but also show you what you need to know about YOU as well.

  1. I had a moment this evening. It started yesterday actually with 5 Minutes for Faith — where they focus on being God’s Masterpiece. That motivated me to do a scrapbook layout (http://www.gottapixel.net/gallery/member-galleries/p354567-pixel-club-challenge.html) focusing on being His Masterpiece.
    Then tonight when I went to our VBS to take photos their memory verse.was Ephesians 2:10 — the same one from 5 Minutes for Faith & that I used for my layout!
    Isn’t it grand the way God knits everything together & kind of kicks you from all sides?
