Just paid all the monthly utility bills
To some, it seems like no big deal
But to me it is
Lord not only now You are providing
But You have blessed me financially down through the years

I remember one day specifically
Layoff notices were handed out to employees
I sat at my desk and prayed that one I wouldn’t receive
I had just taken out loans and needed my job desperately
That day you answered my prayer instantly

Another time comes to memory
When trouble on a job got too much for me
It was imminent I’d be forced to leave
But another offer I had not received
For several days my phone did ring
But I wasn’t able to catch the one calling
When I finally did, came a job offering
So jobless You spared me from being

Then I remember when I was trying to buy something major
I actually went to it and prayed over it
Not only did the loan go through
You blessed me with a higher, more stable income too
Lord, I recognize all good and perfect gifts come from You
Thanks for financial blessings old and new.

Background

An income or job can be here today and gone tomorrow. It is such a blessing to be able to pay bills when they come due as without adequate income, life can be very difficult. So I’m careful not to take income for granted. It makes me remember God’s generosity and kindness. Deuteronomy 8:18 says remember that God gives us the power to generate an income or wealth and James 1:17 says every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord.
