It is amazing how God provides exactly what you need, when you need it.  We arrived back in Okinawa two weeks ago with little more than the "clothes on our back."  Needs?  Oh, yeah, there were plenty of needs.  We had no furniture, no vehicle, no nothing.

Like I said, it was amazing to see God work to meet EACH and EVERY need.  We now have enough furnishings to fill an apartment and even a van to transport it.  The only problem was getting approved for an apartment.  Not that we are on anyone's blacklist or anything, but sometimes you get turned down for being a foreigner.  Sometimes they don't want little kids living next door.  I understand, my kids are loud sometimes.

So we had everything we needed, except an address... until today, that is!  We received word today that we are approved and ready to move on August 1st.

God definitely met our needs again and as Pastor Tommy mentioned last night, these times of of provision are not only for today, but we can draw on them for strength for tomorrow.  As we remember how God proved Himself yesterday, we can trust in Him for our tomorrows.

God has been with you and provided for your every need so that you lacked nothing. -- Deuteronomy 2:7
