My Husband and I were doing our regular feeding of the birds down by the water were we live. So relaxing we visit their every weekend to relax and distress from work week. It’s something about feeding the birds that relaxes us we also pray & spend time together. As we pulled up the birds were resting, but as soon as we got out the car they rose to their feet. As we were breaking up the bread the birds they flapped their wings with glee. They were eating and enjoying the bread, though some were flying and catching the bread in the air as we threw it to them: the others were waiting for the crumbs to drop. My husband said to me look at the others who are just waiting for the crumbs to drop. I could not believe what I was seeing, it reminded of the scripture Mark 7:27-28 were the woman spoke to Jesus and replied “even the small pups under the table eat the scraps”. What an awesome story, to thank God for the crumbs. The story ended with her daughter being healed, because of the mother’s faith. In the woman's reponse we not only see the deepest humility present, but the most amazing faith. She believes that even the smallest of crumbs that falls from God's table is sufficient for her needs. Do we honestly questions ourselves and say "Lord me humble myself and have faith that your will - will be done in my life; what ever you are standing in need of seek the Lord. There are thigns that my husband and I believed God for; and God moved on the situation. Recently I received an increase at work, though it may not have been six figures it was definately and substantle increase of what I was making 6 months ago. I am happy and I Thank God everyday because it could be worse. I could be looking for a job or not have employment for sometime but waiting. Sometimes we have to humble ourselves and take the crumbs, have faith that God will give the whole loaf.
Mark 7:27-28 And He said to her, First let the children be fed, for it is not becoming or proper or right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the [little house] dogs. But she answered Him, Yes, Lord, yet even the small pups under the table eat the little children’s scraps of food.
