TRUST #8: Trust God to Meet Your Needs (Carolyn McIntosh's Story)

Today, my mom (a recent widow) is sharing one of her TRUST stories with all of us. Thank you for sharing, Mom, and for encouraging us to trust the Lord through every season of life: 
Since losing my husband in May 2017, the Lord has been teaching me to take things one day at a time. I have had to TRUST Him for many things, including car and house repairs; but each time I ask, my church family has been there for me. God's Word says He has promised to supply all my needs, and to be the husband to the widow. The more I TRUST Him, the more He shows me how His Word is true.
I have also had to TRUST Him to show me each day what He has for me to do. At times, I have felt like I am doing nothing for the Lord since my husband passed, but I am learning that He cares about the "little" things I can do, as well as anything else that comes my way. 
  • I can be a prayer partner.
  • I can be a good listener.
  • I can visit a neighbor.
  • Just giving a smile is important.
  • Being there for my children and grandchildren is important. 
He has shown me I can TRUST Him to use me during this season of my life; and YOU can trust Him, too. Ask the Lord to help you use your gifts, and He will. Just listen to Him, and be ready!

For His Service,
Carolyn McIntosh
