Several weeks ago the women at the church had a “pounding for me” so what exactly is a pounding? It’s a Texan tradition of bringing a newcomer a pound (here actually a kilo) of this and that to get them started in their new place. I was amazed at their generosity. They truly believe that it’s better to give than to receive. A sister from the church who was unable to make it called us and asked what we needed. My husband asked me and I without thinking said “maybe a mop”. The sister stated “no, I would like to bless you with a refrigerator or stove”. I laughed at my expectation. Today we went and got my stove. On the way back , I was thinking how often we come to God with a faithless request. We all have needs and most of us know that we can pray to God to meet those needs but where we fail is that we expect a mop when he wants to give us so much more. He my friend is a God that ownes the cattle on a thousand hills. He is a good God who promises to suply all of our needs according to his riches in Glory.
