Rubbing the sl
“Quail, Lord. I can eat quail. You fed your people with oodles of quail.” The obvious lack of manna and request for quail is more than a desire to fill my tummy. Today is my first day of total dependence on God, my first day without a paycheck.
For the past forty years, my strong-willed, determined, and tenacious personality has gotten me this far. However,
The manna aka short-term disability income ran out.
Glancing down at my phone, I notice a missed call. I return the call and my friend apologizes for the early interruption. She explains “April, I heard the song “I AM” by David Crowder this morning on the radio, I feel like God wanted me to call you today to tell you whatever you need God says, I AM.” I share with my friend, that today is the first day of truly walking by faith and not by sight.

Whatever I need, God is I AM.
I AM .
I AM amply supplied. (Philippians 4:18)
I trust the Lord for His unique provision in a new season of my life. New season equals new supply. I AM amply supplied and “it is well with my soul.”
If you are in a season void of manna, I encourage you to watch the sermon “He Took the Manna Off the Menu” by Steven Furtick.
P.S. I wrote this article a month ago, but it never felt the right time to share. Since then, my husband has been on strike with Verizon. Even after a month of no manna from any previous sources. I can say: God is good. He will supply all your needs, and I AM amply supplied.
