This was actually revealed to me a few years ago while I was reflecting on my childhood. Although I was the only child in my home, it was not a â€œpicture perfectâ€ setting as some perceived. Â Adversity did not overlook us! I recall the small living quarters, mediocre living conditions and sleeping arrangements.Â However, my outward appearance never portrayed the less-than-perfect nor a less fortunate attitude.Â I was always groomed to perfection.Â I donâ€™t ever recall lacking or wanting for anything!Â
For the first time, I realized that God had always seen to it that all my needs were met. I was not always aware of where the resources and provisions came from, or who the kind-hearted and generous persons were.Â But now I know that the true Source was my heavenly Father taking care of me.Â Yes, it may sound selfish saying, â€œtaking care of me.â€Â The truth of the matter is, even in my childhood, He was grooming me to be a witness for His glory and to give testimony to His faithfulness.Â I am thankful that He placed people in my life to see to it that whatever I needed would be provided.Â Even now, as His daughter, I am convinced more than ever, that not only are my needs met, but even the desires of my heart are also granted. The Lord God is faithful!
Sometimes, we have a tendency to recall our childhood memories with disgust and negativity. Although we may remember the bad, but from the “bad” God has a way of bringing out the “good.” Â (Romans 8:28).
What can your childhood memories give testimony to about God’s faithfulness?
