I've written about some of those blessings on my Sunrise Scriptures website, on the page titled, "The King's Table." I've embedded that page below, for you to read if you haven't, along with the brief update at the bottom of it. But, the rest of the story is so much more beautiful, and of course nobody knows "the rest," except my husband, my son, and I. I haven't gone into the personal details, but they are known by God, and that's what matters. We made giving and supporting God's work a priority portion of those blessings, just as I've done in the past.
After we had given beyond tithes and offering on what was to be a fraction of my income for the rest of my life. And, we followed the details of Deuteronomy 26 out of a desire to bless others less blessed. Even after giving away, we dealt with different sharks from satan taking money back that we had already given offerings for. But, we didn't care. The gifts and offerings hadn't been demanded from us, but given freewill. Then, God turned around and gave us 10 times more. Rinse, lather, and repeat... to make a long story short.
God took care of us. We have our home, and we were able to honor God and the needy well beyond the tithes and offering on my income. But, beyond that, God had already been taking care of us, during those 2 years I had gone through the surgeries with no income. When I had no paycheck God still took care of me. In the end, God took the fact that the insurance company was trying to shirk paying me for the rest of my life, and turned it into a home for me and my family. He took what was a knife in my back, and made it a tool in our hands, a tool for our good. Every time I look at our physical blessings, I feel God's pleasure and bounty in our life. And, I wasn't even hunting for a bounty. I was loving and living the life I had been given, and the God who gave. I had accepted that I had lost years of income, and possessions, and we were just trying to dig back out from under the medical debt. I didn't pursue to take them back, as David did in the Bible. I did not even sue the Doctors who injured me. Then, God rang my telephone. Special Delivery! God's bounty came to us. God replaced lost income. God is very good! So, today we can say, just like the Israelites when they first got their land...
Deuteronomy 26:5-10 And you shall speak and say before the LORD your God, An Aramean ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous: And the Egyptians mistreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage: And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labor, and our oppression: And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terror, and with signs, and with wonders: And he has brought us into this place, and has given us this land, even a land that flows with milk and honey. And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land, which you, O LORD, have given me. And you shall set it before the LORD your God, and worship before the LORD your God:
