God blesses us with provisions. They are precious miracles of purpose from His Almighty hands of love.

"The activity of supplying or providing something is a provision". Often, God opens our eyes to understand how His provisions can allow others to experience His greatness.

Then, she took her last breath, and died.

Take a moment and consider God’s provisions for your life. He wants you to understand He will take care of you. And, as you begin to embrace His steadfast love, you may just realize He already has…
God is near,
