Omnipotent Manager!

Grain prices are up - WAY up! Good for grain farmers, but for those of us feeding animals with those grains ... well, it hurts in the pocketbook!

Just before Christmas, DH was gathering feed supplies for his next batch of feed which needs to be made right now in the beginning of this new year. In December, the best price he could get from his supplier was $1300.00 for a large tote of feed-grade organic flax-cake - ouch, BIG OUCH! We've usually paid around $300-400 for that amount.

We put off the purchase then, prayed about it & discussed trusting God to supply our need. Now, we NEED to buy & get the feed mixed by the end of next week when the chickens will be out of the current feed supply.

So, today DH calls the company again and talks to a surprised manager that was just thinking of calling to let DH know they have not one, not two, but four tote bags of organic flax-cake for animal feed priced at only $150/metric tonne = approximately $100/large tote bag.

"But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

It is a joy to serve the omnipotent God!
