God’s economy

There are more people than I can name facing long journeys right now. It was with them in mind this morning that God impressed the phrase “in God’s economy that’s not so big.”
One dear friend is facing a joyous semi-scary thing – the process of international adoption. In trying to wrap her head around paying for this journey that God has placed on the heart of she and her husband someone said simply “in God’s economy that’s nothing.”
It’s been bouncing around my head and for some reason this morning it’s running on repeat.
Another dear friend is facing a journey with a brand new baby with health problems that are as serious as you could imagine. So many prayers have been answered and yet the road ahead is a long one … I can’t know how she feels. I do know that whatever she’s facing, you’re facing, I’m facing it’s not too big in God’s economy. He’s the kind of God who fed the masses with a humble lunch from a boy WITH leftovers! And the one that raised the dead and parted the Red Sea. And rose after three days.
I needed to be reminded of this today. Maybe you did too.


About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
