Default God is in charge

Just wondering if anyone else has had a recent experience of God taking over and providing support in a moment of need?

Twice in the last few weeks, through unforeseen circumstances, I have been asked to lead the morning service in our church and give the address at about an hour's notice.

To say that I felt inadequate would be a gross understatement. But on both occasions I was humbled by the way in which God took control, and blessed all of us.

Does this experience (maybe in a different context) sound familiar to anyone, and if so would you like to share it with us?

This happens often to me.

The most recent example is something so simple. I was worrying about how we would afford to get my daughter a modest formal dress for her birthday in July. I have never seen a modest dress in any of the thrift stores around here and to even buy them on sale would cost at least $50 (which I know doesn't seem like a lot, but to our budget it is). Well, I had to go back to a local thrift store last week because the week prior I needed to get something that was in their storage building but the door was frozen shut and after the weather warmed up, I could finally get in there. Well, they were having 1/2 off the store when I went back (which was great because I was able to save 1/2 on what I was going to buy the week prior!). Well, since the store was 1/2 off, I figured I might as well just see what they had in formal gowns. The very first dress I picked up was modest AND in my daughter's size. It was marked $10 which I would have gladly paid, but even better that it would only be $5; however, when I went to pay, she only charged me $2.50!

How encouraged I felt after that trip to the store as I was also able to find some other items I have been looking for at great prices.
