When we have the Daily Bread of the Presence of YHWH we have all we need.
When I only see my reality/my lack of what ever, I often have to ask for the sight to see His provision and resources for my need. Then to move slowly out of the personal darkness and into His Light that provides for all my needs.

Two vehicles given to me FREE to meet transport needs when I began each new job.

Seeing the Hand of God in those aspects of my life gives me hope for the future.
