God’s Provision

God’s Provision

On my July 25 blog (God’s Little Surprises) I told you about beginning to record my God’s Little Miracle Book series. Here it is six weeks later and I’ve got two of the books recorded. Now all I have to figure out is how to fix the corrections, format them, and send them to Amazon ACX.

Every step is a learning curve for this old dog, but God is quick to furnish encouragement every step of the way. The other day my grandson, Sam and I, sat in the kitchen. I was about finished with the recording part.

I asked Sam (13) “Hey, do you know anything about the Audacity recording program?”

“Sure. You need some help?”

With a look of surprise his mother said, “How do you know about Audacity?” (Sam is home schooled.)

Sam shrugged. “Oh, I worked with it a while back.”

“Yes, Sam. I sure could use some of your expertise.”

God is so faithful. Everything He asks us to do, He has already gone before us to prepare the way. We only have to wait on Him to show us His provision.

God’s Little Surprises

God’s Little Surprises

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had as my summer goal, to find a reader to read my God’s Little Miracle Book ( I, II, & III). I hadn’t done anything toward attaining that goal. It was like I was in a holding pattern.

On a Friday night I was up half the night unable to go to sleep. When this happens, I often get up to write my prayers. This night I felt the Lord telling me to lay down my plans. I didn’t know what those plans were, but I obeyed.

The next morning I hauled out of bed to get to the 9:00 a.m. prayer meeting at church. After the prayer meeting, a girl I had only met a couple of times at that meeting said to me, “I just love to listen to you read.”

No one had ever said that to be before. I don’t feel I read well. Was I to read my own books?

She said with a laugh, “You look like you’ve just seen a mountain.”

“I have,” I replied. The thought of recording those books myself was overwhelming.

Quickly I said, “A recording studio is very expensive. Sixty-five dollars an hour, at least.”

“Oh, that’s no problem. I have some friends who have a recording studio.”

Was this some kind of conspiracy? Did God really intend me to read? I gave her my card so she could give it to her friends.

I didn’t hear from anyone by the next Thursday when I was at the library. I checked out their new MakerSpace that has a sound-proof recording booth for–free! All I had to do was make a reservation online as if I was reserving a study room and I was in.

On Friday, a blog I read regularly had an article about recording your own book.  Just in case I missed it, a good friend sent the same article to me. Everywhere I turned His will kept popping up.

It’s a new learning curve for an old dog, but given enough time and the help of the Lord, I’ll get these tracks down. Then I can upload them to Amazon ACX and those books will be available for those too sick or blind to read. Hopefully, this work will strengthen and encourage them.

I never cease to be amazed at God’s plans that are far above and beyond anything I could dream up or imagine!
