hands of provision

I love this picture from IKEA, I'd be thrilled to give credit to the correct person, however I don't know who took it or even how to find it on the web, I've tried.  So I took a picture of my new picture.  I need to paint my dining room and kitchen (ok have it painted) so I can hang it.  I love it! 

Its a very simple picture.  Its not the Hands of God but some small child I think holding currants.  Most people probably don't even know what currants are, they are not the most popular of fruits, I probably wouldn't even know, but I remember when I was little eating currant jelly.  I don't remember what it tastes like, but I do remember liking it. 

Maybe its because the voices in my head are so loud that I can't seem to hear anything, its complete chaos in there (my mind seriously is a dark and scary place)  but this picture is so simple. Two hands holding currants.

It reminds me that God always provides.  Today He provided me with a friend who wouldn't take no for an answer.   It was what I needed.  I just needed to talk, and to cry, and to laugh. 

I can't wait to put my picture up.  I do need to go get a frame, why I didn't get one at IKEA I am not sure.  I guess its a good excuse to go back :) 

I'm not physically tired, I am not even spiritually tired, I just don't know where to go.  I feel kind of 'stuck'.  I know that I have to clear out the craziness, I know that I want to go in His direction, I just don't know where His direction is for me.  I know that I have to be still (ever notice that I struggle with that... lol)  but I also know what so much He has put Gal 6:9 on my heart.
Gal 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

God's provision.

Reaping a harvest

He always provides.

Don't you just love it when a pictures speaks to you? That's the only way to buy them, not because they just fill up a space.
I see "provision" in this picture is beautiful, and a constant reminder of provision in our lives and who the provider is!
