Stretching Contacts

There have been many times my heavenly Father has provided for me, especially in the last five years. However, nothing has left me as awestruck as the summer of 2018. I’ve mentioned before in previous posts that I worked as an agronomist. In the Sandhills of Nebraska, many days are windy and because of our light, sandy soils, most of those days carry dust, sand or other small particles in the air. There have been times I was soil sampling and had to rinse off dirty contacts with my spit or throw them away completely because they were scratching my eyes and were painful due to debris collected from the wind. At one point I was even carrying my glasses around in my pickup just in case I had to get rid of my contacts.

One winter when I ran out of contacts, I called my eye doctor to order more. The secretary said I needed an eye appointment before I could order more contacts because my last checkup was in 2017. I told her that’s not possible because I just ordered contacts not too long ago. She said according to their records, the last time I ordered contacts was May 2018, and I only ordered one box. I told her that was not possible either. One box contains only three months’ worth of contacts and that, was over eight months ago.

The secretary insisted I could not order contacts, so I made an eye appointment and went back through my check register. I could not find any record of purchasing contacts in the last eight months! How did three months’ worth of contacts last over eight months, especially considering my work?

The Lord provided for me…again! I am so grateful to have a Father who not only loves me immensely, but also is willing and able to help me physically and financially. Truly, God is good all the time!

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Philippians 4:19-20
