So Africa approaches and I'm totally overwhelmed. I'm overcommitted, tired and just plain not feeling well. But, I still feel God pressing on my heart about Emma Kait. I return from my trip and get a very gentle reminder about Emma from my friend and the special project. I wanted to include Emma in the design process and when we ultimately decided on what she wanted, I knew it was an undertaking bigger than what my 2 hands could accomplish. Ultimately, a custom stamp would have to be made for this project. And they are very expensive.
But still I felt God pressing me to continue on and telling me to trust that HE would provide.
I reluctantly sat down at my computer and sent an image to a stamp maker I used recently. I said just this:
I have another project I've been asked to do for a little girl diagnosed with cancer. I would like to get a quote for a stamp like this:
This was his reply:
I have that font, I think it's papyrus. I'll get the artwork drawn up and sent over. I can donate this one.
"I can donate this one." I didn't ask him for that. I felt like God was saying "I've got this Dawn" and I just cried.
I'm growing in my ability to trust God. I share this story because even though it's a small detail, it's such a good example of how when God brings you to something, he will bring you through it. He will provide and He will meet every need.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Phillippians 4:19
